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
