Travel nurses fulfill an important role, bringing their skill and expertise to medical facilities around the country. However, selecting the right nursing candidates can be a challenge. Not only must your new nurse possess certain experience, but he or she must also be a good match for the rest of your team. At Remede Consulting, we specialize in connecting companies with the best travel nurses to meet their needs. Here are three essential traits that make travel nurses stand out in the hiring process:

Special Expertise

When reviewing travel nursing candidates, Remede seeks out those individuals who possess strong clinical experience, exceptional skills and the appropriate certifications for their specialty area. Many of Remede’s  nurses demonstrate expertise in widely sought-after clinical areas such as Operating Room, Emergency Room, Intensive Care and Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care.  Along with lending support to your team, travel nurses can teach your existing staff new skills, so medical facilities should seek out the most talented candidates for the job.


Want to reduce the burden on your full-time nursing staff? Choose a travel nursing candidate who has strong skills, has traveled before or has worked in a variety of hospital settings. In a large hospital, you never know where a staffing shortage may arise. By hiring a travel nurse with demonstrated flexibility, you can reduce stress levels for everyone on your team while ensuring that your facility is covered in the event that someone suffers an injury or illness causing them to be out of work.


When hiring travel nurses for temporary positions, it may not occur to you to seek out candidates who aim to climb the hospital ladder. However, the truth is that ambitious nursing candidates are more likely to possess enhanced training and education that can benefit your facility. And who knows? You may end up offering one of these talented travel nurses a full-time position on your nursing unit..
