What's going on in today's health care job market?
The candidate selection process is not what it was as last year or even a few months ago. Today’s travel nurses have more competition from their peers. The good news: this is only temporary. The lack of student capacity at nursing schools is ongoing and the current drop in health care demand will eventually correct itself, as it always does. Long term, there is still far more need for nursing staff than anticipated supply. And hospitals that have reduced full time staff will rely on travel nurse staffing agencies to fill the gaps when things turn around.
In the meantime, travel nurses must remain patient and be flexible. It may take you more time than before to find that great travel nurse job. Most likely your recruiter will have to submit your profile to multiple facilities. But, don't worry and don’t let this get to you. You know you're a great professional and we also know you are a great nurse or therapist; just be aware that facilities are getting slammed with candidates. Now, this is the main question; how can you set yourself apart from the other candidates? Ask your recruiter what you can do to make your job application stand out from others. Some simple things to keep in mind:
- making sure that your application is complete and free of spelling errors
- licensure and certifications are up-to-date
- take extra courses
- apply for your state nursing license in advance
By following these tips, you will be ready for that great travel nurse job at the right time!
In this employment market, you might have to adjust your preferences on shift or location. Remember, it’s not forever, only until the market recovers. Wait a while, and you will be calling the shots again! You also might want to consider other specialties. For example, if you’re a critical care nurse, ask about telemetry openings. That might just be the trick that you needed to get that door to open. It’s all about creating positions for yourself and improving your nursing skills.
Travel nursing is a rewarding and lucrative career. Your experience with adjusting to new locations, new co-workers, new systems and new procedures is a real advantage in today's healthcare employment marketplace. We know that at American Traveler, and we want to make sure that you and your future employers know it too.
