Characteristics of a Great Travel Nurse Recruiter

Recently, there was a conversation on our Gypsy Nurse Network group about the characteristics of a great travel nurse recruiter. Our group members had very similar comments.

Here are the TOP responses and characteristics of a great travel nurse recruiter.

  • Someone who listens to my wants and needs, and ONLY presents me with pay packages that fit those needs and wants.
  • Notify me immediately if my ideal jobs come up, push the envelope with negotiation (in my favor).
  •  Prompt replies to emails with legit questions and work related requests.
  • Don’t be text / call constantly. Be aware of each travelers work/sleep hours and respond accordingly.
  • Don’t take travel nurses decisions personally. I’m making choices for MY betterment, not yours.
  • Be a straight shooter, NO CAR SALESMAN.
  • Honesty, transparency, availability
  • Loyalty, a sense of humor, and the drive to go get the money for BOTH of us
