Ask A Travel Nurse: Working with Multiple Staffing Agencies

Travel Nurse compact licensureGypsy,

“Is it a bargaining tool when you tell your Travel Nurse Staffing Agency that you are working with multiple travel nurse staffing agencies?”

 LaTonya

LaTonya,
Thank you for reading The Gypsy Nurse. You have taken the first step on your journey to become A Gypsy Nurse.

I personally believe that working with more than one agency can be a bargaining tool. If a company knows that you are working with other companies, they may be more likely to work a bit harder or offer you a better package than you can get with another company. Another advantage would be that you can compare pay/benefits between companies for a given area.

I would caution you not to divulge too much info about one company to another…I give ‘generalities’ not specifics. Also, it is VERY important when working with more than one company to make sure that they KNOW not to submit you without your specific Authorization!!

A couple of articles I would recommend you read over:
