Would I make a good traveling nurse or traveling healthcare professional?
Before you consider traveling nursing jobs you must have the clinical skill set and experience necessary to be successful. Signature Healthcare requires that you have a minimum of 1 year recent experience (within 3 years) within your area of specialty. You’ll also be required to submit appropriate certifications depending on your area of specialty and valid licensure when traveling to certain states. Our travel nurse recruiters will help assist you with the necessary paperwork and we’ll reimburse you with fees associated with state licensing after you accept an assignment.
Okay, so you have the clinical know-how, licensure and the desire to travel, but it takes a little more to be a successful traveling healthcare professional. You should posses the following characteristics to ensure a positive experience:
Travel nursing, allied healthcare and physicians means a lot of paperwork. You will need to keep all important documents in an organizer or filing system when you travel. Here are some suggestions to help stay organized while you’re away from home.

– Arrange to have your mail forwarded or make sure a friend or family member picks it up weekly.
As a traveling nurse you will encounter co-workers and patients with a variety of personalities, work ethics, values and cultures. We often find a positive attitude, good sense of humor and resilience take our professionals a long way.
One of the secrets in becoming a successful traveling nurse is flexibility. The ability to adjust and adapt to challenging experiences is paramount.
