Hi, my name is Cory Minter, and this is Darcel and we’re with Trinity employment specialists. We’re staffing firms located here in Tulsa, but in the travel nursing world, we staff all over the United States and we always want to add value to both job seekers and employers. And this particular videocast is primarily to educate nurses on travel nursing. There are nurses working in every hospital, um, everywhere who have witnessed travel nursing. They, they know all about it. And this is something that, um, that is changing right now because, uh, we are, we are now into, uh, June we’re June 1st, 2020. So, uh, the, the, we were just talking about this, just the numbers 2020 should alert everyone in what we’ve dealt with so far this year. And one of the impacts that this has had is on travel nursing. And so a lot of the opportunities that have been in travel nursing has, uh, has, uh, significantly reduced with the best Traveling Nurses Missouri, but now it’s building.
And so this is a, this is a really interesting time to at least be evaluating and thinking about travel nursing. And what we want to do in this video is to educate a nurse. Who’s had at least two years of experience in the hospital and, um, maybe they have a specialty and they’re interested in possibly making more money, having a lot more flexibility. And if you do it right, um, getting all of the travel benefits, um, that come with a staffing agency that provides travel nursing opportunities. So we want to get started. We want to start, I always like to start out with statistics, um, and that is that registered nurses are expected to grow by 15% and there is a significant shortage all over the United States in, uh, in travel nursing. And just in nurses alone, I’m according to a Forbes article, Fresno offers the best wages.
So different wages are in different areas. You know, like the state of California offers a little bit higher for a wage, but even in Oklahoma, you can almost double your hourly salary. And so your average, um, salary is $81,000 a year. Um, and the good news is benefits come with that. And even on top of the salary, you can get, you can, uh, get travel, uh, stipends and stuff like that. It’s nontaxable. So, um, uh, 1.1 million that’s how many jobs are expected to be created by 2022, according to the American nurses association. And that’s really great news for travel nurses. And so if you are interested in maybe looking at some new opportunities for a good Traveling Nurses Missouri service, this is a great way of making a lot more money and think about it. If you make double the salary, what if you just worked only six months out of the year?
That sounds really good to me. I’m thinking about going camping this weekend, and it’d be nice if I got to go for the whole week and not just like two or three days. So I kind of liked that idea as well, but let’s start out with this. Darcel is our expert. She has been in travel nursing and has been staffing and travel nursing for how many, how long has it been? Almost 20 years. I, what I like about Darcell is when I listened to her, uh, counsel, and speak with and walk nurses through this process. So I just don’t think there’s anyone better that you could be speaking with then Darcel. But number one is to explore travel nursing. If you were to talk to your daughter or someone about travel nursing, we have some things written down here that I’ve I’ve come up with. How would you talk with them about exploring travel nursing? What would be the first thing in your mind?
The first thing I would talk to a nurse about is preparing to pick up a tribal contract. A lot of times you talk to a nurse who wants to pick up a tribal contract. Then what happens is that need is there when I’m talking to you, by the time that nurse get everything to me, that need is fine. So I want to educate you right now and what you need to do. Have everything prepared, know that these needs move quickly, be ready to do that application, be ready to do that skills checklist, and to prepare for it. Have your certifications ready? Have your shot records ready have me some references ready? Because it’s time-consuming. It’s something that if you don’t move quickly on that need, that need is gone. Cause again, like Corey mentioned, every nurse wants to travel due to the fact that the money you’re, you could work and get paid one week, what you would make in two weeks. So the urgency has to be there. So that is very, very important that you book pair, knowing if you want to do a contract, get ready to do paperwork, send in certifications because again, that knee to give yourself the top Traveling Nurses Missouri services.
So one of the things that were interesting to me when we started this here at Trinity was the credentialing process that we are required to do for on behalf of the hospital. And so if you are considering travel nursing, you need to know that at first. Okay. This is one thing that would concern me if I were a nurse like at first it’s a lot of paperwork and I would because of just who I am. I don’t like doing that kind of stuff and frustrating. Yeah. So I would become very frustrated at first. However, once you do once with a company like Trinity, that’s it for at least a year until we need to make sure and double-check. No, just let me correct. That. Be good. Okay. Yeah. Each state, each facility has different credentialing. Okay. Let’s say you go to Pennsylvania. Yes. We have our protocol of how are we going to get you ready?
But then they go to send us a whole different list according to that as, but we’re going to have a majority of it. So if you’re going to need other things, shouldn’t it be smaller things or is it necessary, really, they might need more shot records. They might need more, um, certifications, different testing. They have to take, versus what we require as the state of Oklahoma, Oklahoma is easier than some of the other States, right? So that’s paperwork. They have to do testing. There are certain things that they have to need, but your average contract is what, three months or 13 weeks. So once every 13 weeks we would be looking at this and you try to work with these nurses to try to be on in front of that. So it’s not an all at once. And the link is all about educating them because most nurses who’re never traveled without consider using a Traveling Nurses Missouri company.
It’s like you said, it’s overwhelming. They’re like, Oh my goodness. I still had to do all this paperwork. Yes. But if you go into it, looking at it in a different lens and say, okay, I know I’m required to do this paperwork. So I’m going to be on top of that. I’m gonna have my shot records. I’m going to have this stuff, have the stuff that Trinity needs because until we get you locked into a contract, we don’t know what else are you going to need? It’s going to be different. It could be more, it could be less, but again, every facility is different, so it’s required, right? So every hospital, some hospitals are going to be a little bit more strict than others. And, um, and so our job is to try to really just be an advocate for you and help to help walk you through it.
Yes, it’s, it might sound overwhelming at first, but really when you have some way, someone like Darcell and then we have a credentialing specialist here at Trinity, they’re going to really try to help make this pretty easy for you. But, um, in addition to the other videos that we posted, uh, because we have different things like, uh, you know, things that you need to look about T uh, tips for getting prepared for travel nursing, please check out those videos, but here are some other, um, options for you. The gypsy nurse, um, travel nursing blogs, um, highway hopper Dominic’s, um, go travel nursing. These are some great blogs and, and really good information for that. So number two is a network with current travel nurses. So, um, I’m sure that each one of you has, um, you know, people in your nursing platoon or your pod that, uh, have done travel nursing, ask them, talk to them about the things that they, and even more when it comes to the best Traveling Nurses Missouri services.
So what are some of the things that you dislike that you wish that you could change? That way you can know the good and the bad number three research, travel, nursing companies find out what people are saying about them. Um, one of the things that, uh, I suggest that you do is take a look at Google reviews and see what other people are saying about travel nursing. Number four, don’t burn bridges. If you take a travel nursing, uh, agreement, travel nurses, they talk amongst one another. So you don’t want to burn your bridges. I always tell people that the way that you handle your business, when it comes to separation, listen, people talk in this nursing community. If you haven’t figured it out yet, it’s a pretty small community. And everyone talks about the crazy stuff. Thing is talk about the crazy style with your Traveling Nurses Missouri.
The United States, everyone knows you burn bridges by accepting a contract. You do all this, you send us the paperwork and then you fall, you don’t complete it. So you’re really, you’re going to be blackballed. Yeah,
well, and here’s how, and then we need to wrap it up with this star. So because of the time, but here’s how there are only just a few large managed service providers or MSPs. Um, and some of them are huge. And once you get flagged in that system, some, each, each one of these larger MSPs, generally, they’re going to have about 4,000 job opportunities almost every day. They’re huge. And when you get flagged in the system, you only have two or three large systems to get flagged in. And then all of a sudden you are completely and totally blackballed. So the way that you handle your businesses is really important.
