In this episode we get in the head of Tammy, an ER nurse manager in NY state that hires travel nurses.  To my knowledge this is the only recording anywhere online where you will get invaluable advice directly from a unit manager that actually decides whether or not to hire travel nurses!  She has been a travel nurse herself so offers great insights on both sides of the travel nursing world.  This episode is packed with content from beginning to end and here are a few of the things we cover in this episode.

  1. The toughest parts about being a travel nurse.
  2. Characteristics that a good travel nurse should have.
  3. As a manager, what does Tammy look for in a travel nurse?
  4. Does Tammy hire first time travel nurses?
  5. What’s Tammy’s top tip for a travel nurse or a nurse thinking about traveling?
  6. She recommends a great online nursing program. (http://www.wgu.edu/)
  7. A story as to why a BSN or higher is mattering more and more these days.
  8. Talks about orientation and the skills needed to be a travel nurse and a strike nurse.
  9. How many travel nursing companies you should work with.
  10. Fringe benefits of being a travel nurse.
  11. Should you finish your contract if something goes wrong?
  12. What happens when a manager doesn’t think a travel nurse will work out?
