Critical Care (CCU and ICU) Travel Nurses
Critical care unit (CCU) and Intensive care unit (ICU) travel nurses are nurses who have specialized skills in providing care to patients who are in critical condition. CCU and ICU nurses work in various departments, including post-op units, intensive care units, burn units, and other specialized areas within hospitals that provide critical care.
Most positions for ICU travel nurses are found in the hospital setting. Nurses who work in ICU can also choose subspecialties, such as Medical ICU, Cardiovascular ICU, Burn ICU, Surgical ICU, Neuro ICU, and others. Throughout the United States, there are also rehabilitation facilities that employ critical care nurses because they have extensive experience with tracheostomy tubes and ventilators.
Successful critical care nurses excel in communication as they are responsible for providing education and support to patients and family members. CCU nurse traveling positions are available throughout the United States at many great locations that offer competitive pay rates and full benefits packages, which can bring compensation for this type of position to more than six figures annually.
Critical care travel nursing assignments are typically 13-weeks in length and there is often the option to extend the contract.
