WHAT ARE THE HOTTEST SPECIALTIES IN TRAVEL NURSING?
In the world of travel nursing, much of our success as a staffing firm and your own success as a travel nurse depends on the ability to match the right candidate (you) with the right role (one you’re truly excited to take on).
Sometimes this match is easier to make than others since our business is not immune to the laws of supply and demand. Make no mistake, the vast majority of our staffing needs and placements are for RNs, but when it comes to specialty roles, certain markets are seeing the greatest influx of need. If any of them match your skill set, you could have your pick from a wide array of possible destinations.
* Eldercare. This market is growing quickly, and as the baby boomers continue to age, it’s easy to see why. Nurses specializing in eldercare have the opportunity to work in a variety of settings including hospice, home healthcare agencies and nursing homes.
* Neonatal care. Turning to the other end of the spectrum, we’ve seen an increase in demand for neonatal care nurses. Intensive care units across the nation have a need for talented compassionate nurses to help care for their smallest patients.
* Nurse practitioners. With their ability to provide quality care at a more economical level, it’s no surprise that the demand for nurse practitioners has skyrocketed. If you’re a nurse practitioner, you’ll love your facility and location options.
* Acute care. Working in an emergency room or intensive care unit requires a particular skill set and disposition. Simply put, it’s not for everyone. If you do work in this type of environment — or better yet thrive — you probably won’t be surprised to learn there is a lot of demand in the market for your services. Hit us up and we can put you in touch with areas where your services are dearly needed.
