Travel Nurse Jobs description

The duties of a travel nurse are very similar to those of a non-traveling nurse. During a typical shift, a travel nurse is required to administer medicine (oral, via injection, etc.), document medical information, receive and discharge patients, coordinate patient care with other departments such as physical therapy, respiratory therapy, speech therapy, and others.

When a travel nurse arrives at work, he/she is given a report of the status of the patients he/she is going to attend from the nurse on the shift before him/her. The report generally includes the name, age, current medical problems and medical history. After the report the travel nurse visits each of the patients to introduce himself/herself and assess their conditions.

In addition to the traditional nurse duties, a travel nurse will also have to deal with several traveling nurse employment agencies he/she works with. This can require filling out paperwork, moving from assignment to assignment, negotiating contract provisions, etc.

Some of the benefits of working as a travel nurse include being able to visit different parts of the country every 6 weeks and going on little mini-vacations. Agencies also pay travel nurses for their relocations, utilities, housing, and bonuses.

One of the disadvantages is having to deal with two different employers (the agency and the assignment facility). The provisions in the agency contract may often conflict with the rules of the assignment facility.
