3 Reasons Why Staff Nurses Choose To Travel

3 Reasons Why Staff Nurses Choose To Travel  


To travel or not to travel? That’s a great question. With thousands of staff nurses across the country making the switch to travel nursing, it’s clear that travel has its advantages. Travel nurses enjoy competitive pay, excellent benefits, and free housing, all while experiencing a variety of practice environments.

Keep reading to discover why so many nurses are choosing to travel.

Freedom and Flexibility


The freedom and flexibility that comes with travel nursing’s unique career path is truly unparalleled. While the career paths of staff nurses depend on the needs of their employer, travel nursing offers greater independence. A travel nurse’s career path is determined by the nurse’s own personal agenda and professional goals. As a travel nurse, this means you’ll have the invaluable ability to manage your own career. In addition to professional freedom, many nurses enjoy the flexibility of being able to choose to take time off in between assignments to vacation or visit family and friends.

Professional Experiences and Growth Opportunities


Travel nursing allows nurses to choose from a wide variety of practice environments. Whether your assignment takes you to a renowned research center in a bustling city or to a small clinic in a rural town, you will be exposed to new technology and cutting-edge procedures as you travel from one placement to another. The stimulating experience of working in different practice environments allows many travel nurses to work with a patient population and staff they would have never experienced otherwise. Ultimately, traveling gives nurses the opportunity to gain knowledge based on experience, making them a more marketable healthcare professional.

Adventures To Last A Lifetime


Have you always thought living in New York would be exciting? Didn’t you say you wanted to try living in the Midwest? Would a life in Hawaii feel like a vacation the second you got off your shift? A career in travel nursing offers the opportunity for endless opportunities and adventures. Travel nurses have the freedom to decide what type of lifestyle they would like to experience and choose their next assignment based on the criteria they’re looking for. With their choice of assignments in any of the 50 states, nurses can base their selections on anything from professional opportunities and financial incentives to proximity to family or friends. At Trinity, many nurses choose their next assignment based on their passions, combining their love of nursing with their hobbies or interests!

Social Media Tips and Best Practices For Travel Nurses

Social Media Tips and Best Practices For Travel Nurses

There are hundreds of millions of daily social media users globally, but not everyone understands the do’s and don’ts of having an online presence. If you’re a travel nurse, you know that social media is essential! Not only can you stay in close contact with family and friends while on assignment, but you also get to show off all of the amazing places you are lucky to experience! Trinity loves interacting with its nurses on social media, but we know it can also be a little tricky to navigate. We’ve put together the best social media tips for travel nurses.

 

Clean Up Your Profile

First things first: Do you know if your social media accounts public or visible to potential facilities or patients? Social media may feel like you are sharing something just between friends, but you may actually be broadcasting it to the world.

 

It is extremely important that you only post information and activity that you’re comfortable with anyone viewing, and that you know how private your accounts are.

 

Having inappropriate content on social media can affect your career and potentially hurt your job search, so it’s important that you treat your social media profiles with care and think before you post. Others can associate what you post with the healthcare facility where you work, and with the agency you travel with. It’s crucial to remember that you represent more than just yourself when you’re online.

 

Stay Compliant

On top of respecting others when using social media, it’s important that you remain compliant with HIPPA. As you well know, protecting patient confidentiality is critical and as a nurse, your responsibility for protecting patient information extends to everything you post online. Beyond stories about patients, even if they are vague, it is also best to avoid discussing coworkers, facilities, or other travelers by name on social media. For a full list of information HIPAA has determined as off limits, click here.

 

While specific information is discouraged, don’t feel limited! There is so much you can share on social media. It is typically okay to share things you and others may find inspirational, funny, heartfelt, motivating, and sincere! If you need a refresh on Trinity’s current social media policy, you can view it here.

 

Keep Current with the News

These days, nothing travels faster than word of mouth… on social media. Stay up to date with the latest travel opportunities, industry news, and special promotions by networking with your recruiter, as well as following industry groups like Gypsy Nurse and of course, Trinity. For example, right now Trinity is offering a free round trip flight to nurses who work two holiday shifts this year. By keeping up with what’s relevant, you’ll be able to take advantage of some amazing opportunities.

 

Connect With Your Community

Not only can you benefit from promotions that you share with other nurses, you can learn a lot from them too! Whether it’s keeping in touch with previous coworkers, reaching out to your recruiter, or simply connecting with other nurses, social media offers a community for travel nurses to share their adventures and experiences.

 

Join in on the fun! Plus, by connecting with your community, you’ll be more tuned in to what’s going on in the travel nursing world.

 

Trinity Healthcare Staffing Group is lucky to have such an engaging community of nurses. Our entire team wants to be there for our travelers. We offer Trinity Check-In contests weekly on Facebook, feature travel nurse adventures on Instagram, and provide the latest travel opportunities on Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. Even our recruiters are active on social media! If you’re new to Team Trinity, or thinking about giving Trinity a try, don’t be shy. It’s time for you to get social.

Sept_TOM_Erin (2)-0Traveler of the Month: Erin Cohen

Erin Cohen is a Pediatric ER nurse who is currently on her first assignment with Trinity in Austin, Texas. Although Erin has been a travel nurse since 2007, she loves living in Texas and does not plan to leave the state anytime soon. While she prefers to stay in one place for work, she has traveled all over the world from Brazil to England, on foreign mission trips to support the less fortunate. A true humanitarian at heart, Erin’s life’s work focuses on helping others in need whether she’s in scrubs or not. 
“What most people aren't aware of is how expensive volunteering can be, the cost of flights and housing alone can add up quickly. Travel nursing has allowed me to both save money and to have a flexible enough schedule to take time off to focus on her love of helping others,” Erin explained. “To me, travel nursing is more than the money I make,” Erin explained, “It's a means to reach out to those who are less fortunate...and the need is so great that it just cannot be ignored.”

Traveler of the Month: Erin Cohen

Although Erin has been a travel nurse since 2007, she loves living in Texas and does not plan to leave the state anytime soon. While she prefers to stay in one place for work, she has traveled all over the world from Brazil to England, on foreign mission trips to support the less fortunate. A true humanitarian at heart, Erin’s life’s work focuses on helping others in need whether she’s in scrubs or not.
 
The majority of Erin’s volunteer work is spent overseas in developing countries on medical missions including Africa, Brazil, and Nicaragua. She recently spent two months volunteering aboard the Mercy Ship in Madagascar where she served as the PICU nurse on the maxilo-facial surgery ward.
 
“What most people aren't aware of is how expensive volunteering can be, the cost of flights and housing alone can add up quickly. Travel nursing has allowed me to both save money and to have a flexible enough schedule to take time off to focus on her love of helping others,” Erin explained.
 
Erin’s joy of giving back has led her to be consistently involved in every local community where she’s traveled. Throughout each of her contract locations, Erin has volunteered at orphanages, animal shelters, soup kitchens, and free medial clinics across the country. On her current contract in Austin, she is giving knitting lessons at an immigration shelter for women and children.

Erin chose to travel with Trinity because of the amazing relationship she has with her recruiter, Cait Osborne, “From day one she has been genuine, friendly and outgoing, understanding, and helpful. I consider her a friend as well and really enjoy working with her!” Erin said of Cait, “She is honest and trustworthy, which are crucial components to a happy traveler/recruiter relationship. She worked tirelessly to land me the contract I wanted with the specifics I requested.”
 
Cait was quick to comment on Erin’s kind nature, “I am so impressed with Erin as a travel nurse and as a person! I don’t think I’ve ever talked to a sweeter person – you can truly tell how genuine and sincere she is. I’m so proud of her and her representation of Trinity. The world would be a better place if we had more Erin Cohen’s running around.”

Why Our Pets Make Travel Nursing More Exciting and Fun

Why Travel Nursing Is Better With Pets


Are you considering a travel nursing adventure, but don’t want to leave your furry friend behind? We’ve got great news: Traveling with pets is possible. At Trinity, we understand that pets are part of the family and that they mean the world to their owners. Our staff loves pets so much that they’re even welcome in the Trinity office!

Here are a few pointers as you think about including your furry friend on your next assignment.

Constant Companionship

When moving from location to location, it can be tough settling into an assignment right away. A four-legged friend provides constant companionship and offers a remedy for feelings of loneliness or homesickness. The majority of Trinity’s pet-owning travelers travel with dogs, but cats and other animals have been known to join Team Trinity too! Our pet owners say that their pets encourage them to go outside for fresh air and exercise, remind them that there’s always time for fun, and are simply there for them after work. We all know, there’s nothing quite like coming home to a familiar face, especially after a long day (or night) of work. Plus, your pet’s excitement upon seeing you is guaranteed to make any homecoming that much sweeter.

Get Your Housing Right

No, your recruiter won’t pet sit for you, but he or she can help you find pet-friendly housing options on your assignment. While there may be pet deposits, pet rent, or pet fees, our team of experts will help take care of the details, providing your pet is well behaved and doesn’t cause any property damage. If you’ve decided to try and find housing on your own, ask your recruiter for recommendations on which cities are more pet-friendly regarding housing.

Other Things To Consider When Traveling With Pets

There are two main things to consider when traveling with your pet: Transportation and care. Most pets will fit if you’re driving to your next assignment, and the good news is, they’ll travel for free in your vehicle. However, if you have to fly to your next assignment, having pets in the cabin can cost approximately $100 per pet depending on the airline, and storing pets in the cargo will cost you roughly $250.

It’s also important to make sure you’ll be able to take good care of your pet while they’re living with you. Will you be able to take care of your furry family member with your work schedule? Part of being a loving pet owner is also taking responsibility for your pet’s best interests. There are plenty of places to find boarding or pet sitters to help out and make your assignment less stressful.

We’ve heard from our travelers that including their pets on assignment can be one of the most rewarding experiences. From couch snuggles to exploring their new city together during a walk, pets can make the travel nurse lifestyle that much more enriching. Are you ready to travel with your pet? Don’t forget to ask your recruiter about options for you and your four-legged family members!

Trinity All Stars: Kathleen Steiner

  Being a military spouse often means moving around, changing jobs, and being flexible. It is not an easy lifestyle, and it’s filled with regular uprooting and restarting at a new assignment’s notice. And while supporting the men and women who serve our country can be a full-time job in itself, many military spouses must leave their current jobs and start anew in a different city and different state many times throughout their career.

 

At Trinity, we recognize that the men and women who serve our great nation are supported by an equally brave group of family members who enable them to do what they do. With many military spouses and veterans working in our offices, we have a deep understanding of the unique world in which they live. We also have a high number of travel military spouses, active duty and veterans, working for use today, that we love being able to provide enriching travel nursing jobs for.

 

One of Trinity’s very own, Senior Client Account Manager Kathleen Steiner, is a proud military spouse who has been married to a now retired United States Marine for nearly 15 years.

 

Kathleen describes her husband’s years of active duty as some of the hardest times in her life, but also some of the most rewarding. “It is always hard as a military spouse to move time and time again, leaving your home and the new friendships you have made. However, traveling to various locations allowed us the opportunity to discover new things, make new friends that have lasted a lifetime and uncover just how strong a person I am… this is the reason I love what I do!”
Wedding
She and her husband, USMC Gunnery Sergeant Eric Steiner, met on a blind date back in 1999 while he was on a temporary assignment for the Marine Corp as a recruiter in southern New Jersey. Although the two have been happy together ever since, they faced their fair share of challenges due to Eric’s military status.

After marrying in January 2002, the pair moved in April from Kathleen’s home state of New Jersey to Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California, with the new orders Eric received. They spent the first several years of their marriage being apart for several months at a time, Kathleen explaining that the longest stretch was 10 months apart followed by a quick one month home together and then another 9 month deployment.

 

“These first few years were very difficult,” Kathleen explained, “My husband was part of the first wave to invade Iraq, and communication was nonexistent at that time.”

 

Without phones or Internet during the first deployment, Kathleen and Eric corresponded by writing letters, often not hearing from each other for 6-8 weeks while waiting to receive a response.

 

“There were countless sleepless nights for me as I lay worrying about him and his fellow Marines’ safety. The slightest sounds would wake me, as I would jump up and look out the window to make sure that the car door I heard was not someone coming to tell me horrifying news. As a military spouse, this is something that cannot be avoided, sadly enough,” she shared before continuing, “By the grace of God, my husband returned home safe to me time and time again and for that I am truly blessed! My heart always goes out to those military spouses who were not as fortunate as I was to have my loved one return home safe.”

 

FamilyAfter new orders were received, the pair moved in April 2005 to Jacksonville, North Carolina and was stationed at Camp Lejeune where Eric would serve the last seven years of his 20-year career and finally retire in 2013. While in North Carolina, the pair gave birth to two boys and Kathleen found what she described as her “forever work home” in Trinity Healthcare Staffing Group.

 

During this time in North Carolina, Eric deployed several more times, but with two small children at home to raise on her own, Kathleen found the separation more difficult than ever.

 

“Being both mother and father and full-time employee was never easy, but as a military spouse and mother (with no family nearby to assist), you just learn to push through and get the job done,” she explained. “My faith, the friends I made at home, and my work family at Trinity all were there for me to help when I needed them most. My Trinity co-workers were so supportive, whether it was to offer help when they could, or an ear to listen when my frustrations got the better of me, or a shoulder to cry on when things got rough, or just to share a laugh when the world’s worst Valentine’s gift came in the mail!”

 

“Trinity Healthcare has always been there to support me and my family not just during my husband’s active service but still to this day while my husband transitions to a new life,” Kathleen shared, “We toss around the phrase ‘work family’ in our society a lot, but in this case it is a true statement. Trinity is and always will be my family and I am truly blessed to have the career I do today and to do what I love with the people I love and consider family!”

Reunion
  If you’re an RN with military ties, Trinity is here to help. Our staffing group places a high value on the relationship that a recruiter has with his or her nurse because we understand that a solid support system can make a world of difference to a nurse during their assignment. For military spouses and veterans, this can be especially important because of the unique situation these individuals face. And as a partner of the Military Spouse Employment Program, we regularly work with Military One Source and the Department of Defense to provide jobs to military spouses.

 

 

At Trinity, whether you’re a staffing professional or travel nurse, you’re considered an integral part of the Trinity team and family. We understand from a first-hand experience that individuals with a military background appreciate support and encouragement, and we are happy to provide it. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you pursue the healthcare career of your dream!

Why Now Is The Best Time To Become A Travel Nurse

Why Now Is The Best Time To Become A Travel Nurse
It’s no secret that good nurses are always in high demand, especially RNs, but according to Staffing Industry Analysts’ recent Staffing Industry Forecast, the need is greater than ever.

After growing an extraordinary 20% in 2015, temporary healthcare staffing is projected to grow an additional 14% this year. The star of the healthcare staffing industry? Travel nursing, which is expected to grow an amazing 22% this year after growing 38% in 2015.

With incredible growth over the past few years and high expectations for the future, it’s clear that right now is the best time to become a travel nurse.

What’s Causing The High Demand For Travel Nurses?


A recent study, looked at a four-year historical period of more than 450,000 patient stays to evaluate the impact of supplemental nurse staffing on hospital cost and patient impact. Many hospitals naturally have periods of the year when patient demand is higher than usual. And when a hospital experiences a high point in their staffing fluctuations, the most common solution is to have their permanent nurses work overtime. However, studies have shown that increased overtime hours can lead to lower patient and nurse satisfaction scores and nurse burn out.
The study found that the “minimal to modest” use of additional nursing staff (either contract-based or temporary nurses) is a cost-effective way to address a facility’s rising and falling personnel needs. According to the president and CEO of the American Staffing Association, Richard Wahlquist, "This study shows that supplemental nurses offer the strategic flexibility that hospitals need to augment their workforces during peak times, and to address any interim labor shortages related to leave coverage, vacancies, and expansion of services."

With many studies showing travel nurses have the same, or more, experience and educational background as permanent staff, this broad new study looking at the cost analysis is getting hospitals attention. Seeing that the cost for travelers remains fairly close to the cost of paying overtime, and has positive clinical outcomes more hospital administrators are looking to travel nurses to fill their vacancies.

Benefits of Being a Travel Nurse 

Now is the time to consider becoming a travel nurse, and taking advantage of this booming nursing segment! As a travel nurse, you’re given an exciting opportunity to make a difference in hospitals around the country, while enjoying new adventures, expanding your personal and professional experiences, and making great money.

At Trinity Healthcare Staffing Group, our travel nurses have access to the best benefits in the industry and a network of dedicated, professional recruiters who do what they say they’ll do. Our recruiters have deep experience working with nurses to find the perfect travel assignment, and we love helping first time travelers feel confident in their first assignment. Our team works closely with each of our travelers to secure the assignment that best fits their needs, whether close to home or on the other side of the country.

In order to meet this growing demand, RNs receive a $150 bonus for completing their full travel nurse application with Trinity in the next few weeks!
If you’re ready to explore the world of travel nursing with a company that is dedicated to addressing each of your needs, let us know! We’d love to have you join Team Trinity.

The Trinity Insider: August 2016 Edition


TravelerName

Sophia Cunha is an Army National Guard Reservist who started her career as a travel nurse with Trinity in August 2015. Sophia joined the National Guard 5 years ago to defend our country and “do her part,” a duty just as important to Sophia as the responsibility she has to her patients as a nurse.
 
Sophia is able to uphold this commitment to the National Guard in large part due to the flexible schedule travel nursing provides her, as she is able to work with her Trinity recruiter Andrew Benfer to negotiate scheduling in her contracts upfront. The flexibility of being a travel nurse also allowed Sophia to further her career in healthcare by completing her BSN — providing her with even more choices for her next assignment.
Although for now Sophia enjoys assignments in North Carolina, she is open to exploring locations across the country for future assignments. She loves the flexibility and opportunity for adventure with travel nursing. Sophia chooses to travel with Trinity because she knows she has the Trinity team’s full support in helping her do the work she loves, taking care of all of the details to provide a great customer service experience, and supporting her dedication to our country.

military
Here at Trinity, we are proud to support military families, including many of our own. Military spouses face a unique set of challenges in achieving their career goals, with frequent relocation making it difficult to find and maintain employment, despite a strong set of skills and a high level of commitment and dedication. Acknowledging this need for flexible employment opportunities and recognizing such a strong pool of candidates, Trinity is proud to announce our new partnership with the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP). Partnering with the Department of Defense (DoD), MSEP connects military spouses with more than 300 employers across various industries who have committed to recruit, hire, promote and retain this unique and talented group of professionals. As a military spouse RN, Trinity can help you with expedited licensing in the state where your spouse is stationed as well as providing supplemental benefits, and jobs near military installations nationwide, offering support as you and your family move between assignments. In a nutshell, everyone wins. We are proud to be a part of MSEP and excited to work with more military spouses to find them great nursing careers. Look through the current MSEP job postings and us know how we can help! militarybutton

At Trinity, we recognize that the men and women who serve our great nation are supported by an equally brave group of family members who enable them to do what they do. Being a military spouse is not an easy lifestyle, and it’s filled with regular uprooting and restarting at a new assignment’s notice. One of Trinity’s very own, Senior Client Account Manager Kathleen Steiner, is a proud military spouse who has been married to a now-retired United States Marine for nearly 15 years.
   
Kathleen describes her husband’s years of active duty as some of the hardest times in her life, but also some of the most rewarding. The challenges of moving time and time again, leaving behind her home and new friends, were also met with new discoveries and adventures that helped Kathleen realize just how strong she is.
 
While a final move in 2005 to North Carolina was met with the news joys and challenges of becoming a parent, Kathleen comments, “Trinity Healthcare has always been there to support me and my family not just during my husband’s active service but still to this day while my husband transitions to a new life.”

What To Look For In A Travel Nursing Company

How To Know Which Travel Nursing Company Is Right For You

There are a lot of things to consider when looking for a travel nursing agency. While there are many companies to choose from, it’s important that you choose the right one for you. Here are our top picks for what travelers should look for in a travel nursing company:

 

Stability and Reputation

Finding a stable and secure travel nursing company is important. If you desire job security, it is important to find an agency that will be around in the long run.

During the past several years, the travel nursing industry has expanded to include more agencies than ever, giving travel nurses plenty of options. Do your research by looking through their website, reading through testimonials, and asking any fellow travel nurses about personal experiences with a company. It’s important to find an agency that has a reputation you can trust.

 

Benefits

When deciding which travel nursing company to commit to, it’s important to be satisfied with the benefits offered to you. Each company has a unique set of benefits, so it’s important to understand what you want before looking around. As you weigh your different options, take into consideration how soon you will be covered by the company’s health insurance and if there is a deductible. First-day healthcare coverage, health benefits for dependents, reimbursements for licensure fees, and reimbursements for the costs of continuing education are excellent benefits to have.

 

At Trinity, we offer our travelers all of the above. In fact, our travelers receive the same comprehensive health plan and benefits that our recruiters, office staff, and CEO do. You can learn more about the benefits we offer our traveling healthcare professionals here.

 

Recruiters That Care

For many travel nurses, a good recruiter can make a world of difference. Recruiters should be able to explain the industry to newcomers, be knowledgeable about their many client facilities, and assist their travel nurses with many other details. From finding the jobs that best fit your needs to advocating for your interests, a good recruiter is someone you know you can rely on. And since travel nurses are typically on assignment for a short period of time and may not have someone to confide in, recruiters often fill that role. A great recruiter will truly be there for their travel nurses and at Trinity, we believe that the nurse-recruiter relationship is key to having a successful assignment.

 

Culture

At Trinity, we like to think every nurse that travels with us is a part of the Team Trinity family, which is why we place a high value on culture. Whether it’s the company’s mission and morals or just how a recruiter takes care of your needs, we believe that when a company feels like home, it’s a true sign that that company is the one for you. Every traveler should feel safe and comfortable putting their trust in the travel nursing company of their choice.
