Emergency Room Travel Nurses

Emergency room (ER) nurses are often the very first point of contact a patient has when they enter a hospital. ER travel nurses are the ones who are responsible for quickly assessing a patient’s condition or injuries upon arrival to the emergency department (ED) of a hospital. In order to be successful, an emergency room travel nurse must pay extreme attention to detail and excel in communication with patients, family, doctors, and co-workers.

The ER nurse must be able to identify and triage a patient’s signs and symptoms and effectively communicate this information to the attending physician in a timely manner in order to get the patient the appropriate help they need. Furthermore, emergency room nurses assist in the implementation of treatment plans, IV administration, injections, medications, educating patients on prescription information, and helping with EKGs and other triage procedures.

Emergency room travel nurses need to be able to learn the ropes fast, as they must understand the specific discharge procedures of a hospital and the government policies that regulate the transferring, treating, and discharging of patients from the facility. In addition, ED nurses also need to be wonderful educators, as they are the ones who must teach patients and patients’ family members about the treatment at home after they leave the hospital. If you are a registered nurse who has a calm temperament and can work long shifts in a busy environment under stressful conditions - then working as an emergency room travel nurse might be suited for you.

Job Skills / Requirements:

  • ER experience in a hospital setting
  • Proof of right to work in the United States
  • A valid professional license within the state of practice
  • Valid BLS, ACLS, and PALS from the American Heart Association
  • The Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC) credential is recommended and may be required for specific travel nurse positions
  • Other specialty-related certifications are preferred and may be required for specific Emergency Room assignments

ER Travel Nurse Salary and Job Outlook

Acute-care facilities across the United States always have a high demand for experienced ED nurses. Travel nurses working in emergency rooms receive higher pay than the staff nurses do, but the exact amount a traveling ER nurse makes will depend on the precise geographic location, experience level, job requirements of the facility, and if the nurse has other certifications.

If an emergency room travel nurse wants to supplement their compensation, this role within a hospital often has the possibility of overtime hours and additional shifts.

Medical-Surgical Travel Nurses

Medical-surgical nursing (med-surg nursing) is by far the largest nursing specialty in the nation. If you have ever gone to a hospital to visit a friend or loved one, they were most likely receiving care from a med-surg nurse.

What is med-surg? Registered nurses are primarily found in hospitals working on a med-surg floor. They are responsible for taking care of acutely ill adult patients that could be recovering from surgery or could have a wide variety of medical problems and diseases. Med-surg travel nurses provide care for patients before and after surgeries and medical procedures. Besides hospitals, you can also find med-surg in outpatient clinics, long-term care facilities, and specialty surgery centers.

What are the responsibilities of med-surg travel nurses? Medical-surgical registered nurses are responsible for taking daily assessments, post-surgical assessments, and caring for patients’ wounds. In addition to providing basic care to patients, med-surg travel nurses also continuously monitor and assess patients’ needs and health status and evaluate whether patient treatments (medications and other routine aspects of care) are effective based on the health outcomes of the patients.

Perhaps the most important skill a travel med-surg nurse should have is excellent coordination skills. You must be able to multi-task and “wear many different hats” to advocate for and provide care to your patients. Mainly because med-surg travel nurses have a heavier patient load that nurses who work in intensive care or maternity, these nurses must be highly organized and great at coordinating multiple care treatments for a handful of patients at a time. Med-surg nurses might be juggling several tasks at one time, such as providing patient education, administering medications, admitting new patients, discharging other patients, and communicating progress with the entire care team.

Job Skills / Requirements:

  • Valid BLS from the American Heart Association
  • A valid professional license within the state of practice
  • Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) credentialing through the American Heart Association is recommended and may be required for specific registered nurses and travel nurse positions
  • Other specialty-related certifications are preferred and may be required for specific positions
  • Proof of right to work in the United States
  • Experience as a med-surg nurse in a hospital setting

Med-Surg Travel Nurse Salary and Job Outlook

Med-surg travel nurses are in demand in virtually all 50 states across the nation. Med-surg travel nurse pay is going to vary greatly depending on the current demand and the location of the facility. If you want to pick up additional shifts as a medical-surgical travel nurse, there are often overtime opportunities within this specialty of travel nursing.

Elite Specialty Staffing also offers referral bonuses and other incentives that can further increase pay. Med-Surg travel nurses who work with Elite Specialty Staffing can choose to take free, private, luxurious housing, or a generous housing subsidy. When you work as a med-surg travel nurse with Elite Specialty Staffing, you will gain all the lucrative travel nursing benefits we offer. Apply today!
