Whether you are browsing or getting ready to embark on your first traveling healthcare assignment, you need to stay organized and be prepared. Luckily, there are some things you can do to help make the process much smoother and an easier transition. Since I had to learn some things the hard way, I’ll share all of the nitty, gritty details so that you can learn from my experiences. Hopefully, I’ll be able to ease your fears by clearing up any misconceptions you may have.
Gain the Experience
First thing is first – you’ll want to gain clinical experience. You’ll need to obtain at least 1-2 years of experience in your specialty or field of expertise. If you will be working in a specialized unit, such as Labor and Delivery or ICU, some travel hospitals may require you to have even more experience before traveling.
