How do I choose an assignment?
Once we have reviewed your application and skills checklist, you and your recruiter will discuss your assignment expectations, career goals, and your desired destination in order to find the best assignment for you. You will then be presented with available assignments, including details on the pay rate, facility, unit, shifts, location and bonuses.
From that list, you will interview with the facilities of your choice. All interviews are done over the phone. After your interview, you and your recruiter will decide which assignment to take
How long are travel assignments?
Typically, assignments range from eight to 13 weeks. However, we can often be flexible and offer shorter or longer assignments based on your specific needs. And many times, you have the option to extend an assignment you particularly enjoy.
How long will it take to approve my application and start my assignment?
Some travelers start their first assignment a week after submitting their application, while others plan their assignments several months down the road. How quickly you can start traveling depends on whether your documentation is in order and if your license is current for the state where you will be practicing. If it isn’t, don’t worry — we’ll help you get all the paperwork and credential requirements organized in time for your assignment start date.
What are the state licensing requirements for my assignment?
Your recruiter will advise you on the specific requirements for the state in which you have chosen to take an assignment. For more information, please visit our state licensing section.
What happens after I complete my assignment?
After your assignment is complete, you have many options. Many facilities will give you the option of extending your current assignment, or may offer you a permanent position at their facility. If you prefer, you can travel to a new assignment, or even return home and travel at a later date. It's entirely up to you.
