She has been with us for nine years and really knows how to get the most out of travel nursing. Molly suggests you…

Be flexible
When looking for jobs it’s always a good idea to have at least three locations in mind. This will increase your chances of getting the perfect assignment!

Ask questions
Your recruiter is your advocate so utilize their knowledge! There is no such thing as too many questions when looking for and preparing to start your assignment.

Speak up
When phone screening with a facility, it’s just as much an interview for you as it is for them. This may be your one chance to speak with the manager before you start – make the most of it!

Stay organized (We have an app for that)
From timecards to schedules — organization is key! Plus, each assignment you take may ask for different credentials. Keep copies of all of them together in a folder or flash drive for whenever needed.

Enjoy it
Make the most of your time at your new destination. When you’re enjoying your personal life, your work life is that much better! Be sure to ask your recruiter for recommendations on fun things to do in the area.
