A consistent, positive work history is the key to building a strong travel nursing career. One of the most important things you’ll need to develop your resume is references from past supervisors.
Before you begin a travel nursing assignment, think about how you want your supervisor to evaluate you in the following areas after the assignment is complete, then conduct yourself accordingly during the assignment:
There are several things to keep in mind regarding references:
Ensuring your references are positive and verifiable by your staffing agency will be especially helpful in expediting your future profile submissions to a facility. With steep competition for travel jobs, any delay could cause you to lose the assignment you desire. You can avoid delays by always getting commitments for evaluations from your supervisor(s) before you leave the assignment. You will need two references from two separate supervisors for your resume.
Remember, if you follow these suggestions and secure your references before leaving each assignment, you’ll maintain professional evaluations that will highlight your outstanding performance and you will really stand out when your profile is presented to facilities. Your excellent references will make it easy for them to see that you are the best choice for their travel nursing assignment.
