How Do I Choose a Travel Nurse and Allied Health Agency?

When deciding which travel nurse and allied health agency is right for you, there are a few things you should consider.

First is reputation: If you know other travelers, ask them if there are any companies they’ve enjoyed working with. Utilize online resources such as BluePipes and Highway Hypodermics for recommendations.

Also consider where you want to go. If you have a specific city or hospital in mind, be sure to ask this up front so your recruiter can search for possible job availabilities.

Next, get to know recruiters at different agencies. Your recruiter will be your point of contact; make sure you work with someone you trust. At the same time, if you like a company but not the recruiter, ask if you can work with a different recruiter there.

Finally, be sure to consider compensation packages, benefits, and housing options a company can provide. Do they meet your needs?

Choosing the right travel nurse and allied health agency comes down to reputation, trust, location, compensation and benefits.

It’s your career, find the partner that is right for you.
