Most can agree that working as a travel healthcare professional is an especially rewarding career, as you are able to help care for patients all over the country while exploring new places and experiencing different cultures.
As a travel nurse, you could be working in a variety of settings – research or teaching facilities, health care centers and community hospitals. Part of preparing for your first day on a new travel nurse assignment is finding out as much as you can about the facility beforehand. Your recruiter and travel nursing agency will be able to provide you with everything you need to know about the setting, but don't be afraid to do your own research as well. It might be nice to find out if the hospital has received any awards or if they have been featured in the press recently. Learning more about where you will be working for the next several weeks can help you feel like part of the team and prepare you to answer any questions patients might have about the facility.
