Hi, my name is Cory mentor I’m with Trinity employment specialists, and we are a travel nursing agency located here in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but we provide nursing options for nurses all over the nation. And I appreciate you joining us today. Today. What I’m talking about are 10 ways to prepare for a career in travel nursing and the video that I just shot before. I don’t know how it’s showing up on your, on your screen up there, but I just shot one that basically was exploring travel nursing, giving you a lot of websites. And, um, I want to jump into this really quickly so that I’m able to get through all 10. Um, but I want to, what Trinity wants to do with this website or not with this website with this video is give you good information, especially nurses who are just thinking about getting into Traveling Nurses Missouri.
And one of the great things about travel nursing is you can work less and make a whole lot more money because there are not near enough nurses to facilitate the need and travel nursing is growing at such an alarming rate because of the affordable care act, Medicare and Medicaid. It’s just forcing this to happen. And the good thing is for nurses, you can make so much more money. So let’s jump into this. The first thing that you want to do is explore travel nursing, go out online and look for great resources. Um, one great thing is we would love to be a personal resource for you. So if you give us a call at Trinity at (918) 622-2588, and reach out to either myself, Cory, mentor, or Darcel, we would be happy to just personally answer questions for you. Darcell has been doing travel nursing for over 20 years with our Traveling Nurses Missouri services.
She’s a true expert in this field, and we would love to be a resource for you because let’s just been honest. When anyone dives into something new, there’s a little bit, there’s an element of fear of the unknown and just concern and questions that you’re going to have. And we want to make sure and answer them for you so that if you are going to jump into this new way of doing nursing, that it is easy and that there are less confusion and clarity for you. So that’s what we want to do. So explore travelers, you can get on to Google and look for great resources. Trinity can be a great resource for you, but the gypsy nurse, great website, travel nursing blogs of there are several of them. You can go look and learn from some of the people who’ve done this for years. Go travel.
Nursing offers practical advice from new and older nurses, um, and crazy girl, C R Z E G R L it’s. If you want to be a flight nurse and go all over the world, you can do that there. Um, the number two thing is the network with current travel nurses. Okay? Most likely you are working at all. If you’re working in a hospital, you’re working with people who are doing travel nurses. You’ve heard about this. You’ve most likely what they do is they tout their salary and you are thinking, Oh my gosh, they’re making more money. Well, let me give you a little bit of a hint. If you didn’t want to travel all over the country or let’s just say, you’re like me and my wife, we don’t have the option to go all over the country right now. I wish we did. That sounds like a lot of fun, but we’ve got two kids in school and get the best Traveling Nurses Missouri.
So there is no way that we can go travel to Florida right now. I would love to, but we can’t. However, most travel nursing requirements require for you to drive either 30 or 50 miles away from your home. So in a lot of ways you can drive just a little bit extra time and make almost double the salary. And so one of the things that we do here at Trinity is we have a, we have strategically gone around Tulsa and found as many smaller hospitals as possible. We’ve acquired contracts with them so we can get, uh, nurses to be able to drive just a little bit further than what they normally would on a normal day and get paid, double the salary and work less. So it’s a great
