Tips For A First Time Travel Nurse – Have Fun

  1. Make Friends With Co-Workers. One of the easiest ways to settle into a new place as a first time travel nurse is to get to know your co-workers. Find out what you have in common. Invite them for a cup of coffee after your shift. Schedule something during your day off. You may not get along with everyone but having a few friends will go a long way to having a successful first time travel nurse assignment.
  2. Think About Your Next Assignment. You know the saying it’s easier to find your next job when you have a job? You will be surprised how fast 13 weeks goes by. Once you hit your forth week it’s a good time to start thinking about what you want to do next. Do you want to extend? Do you want to try somewhere else? Will you need a new license? These are just a few things to think about during your assignment as a first time travel nurse.
  3. Explore Your New Town. You are only at your assignment for a limited time. Make sure you get some you time and explore your new city. Ask co-workers or search sites like Yelp for recommendations on activities and restaurants. Take a mini-vacation if you can. Who knows, you might like the location of your first travel nurse assignment that you might want to come back.
