Ask A Travel Nurse: Choosing the ‘Right’ Travel Nurse Agency

choosing the 'right' travel nurse agencyGypsy,
Do you have any suggestions on choosing the right travel nurse agency? I am just starting to look, but I’m overwhelmed with my options. I have it down to a few, but I’m still feeling overwhelmed, like I don’t want to settle on the wrong one (even though I know I can switch later).

Thank you,
Anonymous RN 

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

Trying to choose the ‘right’ travel nurse agency is an important step in the travel nurse process.   I would not recommend settling with only one. Most travel nurses work with 3 or more agencies in order to have the best job selections and a little negotiating room. If you haven’t read it yet, I would recommend that you read Step #8: Research Travel Nurse agencies in the Travel Nurse Guide .  It lines out how to research Travel Nurse agencies.  In addition, you might want to refer to the Staffing Agency Directory and contact one of those companies.

Finding a good fit with a Travel Nurse agency can be very daunting.  Take your time and remember that it’s only 13 weeks.  If you have tips or tricks to researching agencies, I would love to have them shared in the comments below.
