Why this tip works: With new procedures to learn and equipment to master, you’ll want to make friends in every new travel nurse job. Your fellow RN’s are the ones to brief you on everything from patients to supervisors, to helping you remember where you parked your car.

Affirmation:This hospital chose me.

Why this positive affirmation works: Because American Traveler staffs in America’s best hospitals, competition was fierce when you interviewed and got the job; they knew you’d be a great fit with current staff, and quite capable of negotiating the learning curve that comes with any new travel nurse job.

Why this tip works: Using American Traveler’s career resources page is one-click access to important links and articles in healthcare jobs today.

Affirmation: I enjoy sharing my interests and hobbies with others.

Why this positive affirmation works: It’s always a good idea to share your pastimes with colleagues, because with any luck, a few locals are listening—and they know where the best of everything is. Case in point: one of our American Travelers loved trying the local chili wherever he went, shared his love of taste testing with co-workers and enjoyed the camaraderie when they showed him where to get his next bowl full.
