CVICU Travel Nursing Jobs

A Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU) nurse, is a highly-specialized nursing job. Nurses who work in CVICU have chosen a career in a demanding and high-intensity setting. Cardiac ICU nurses must adapt quickly to their ever-changing work environment and be able to think under pressure.

There is no doubting the importance of working with patients who are recovering from serious cardiovascular surgeries. Common surgeries a cardiac ICU nurse will see include but are certainly not limited to:

  • Open heart surgery
  • Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), and
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair

Recording medical histories of patients, performing diagnostic tests and analyzing their results, administrating medications, effectively communicating with a blend of medical professionals who perform different functions in the CVICU, educating patients and their family members about lifestyle and diet habits that can promote healing and continued health are all common duties a cardiac ICU travel nurse will perform.

Quick-thinking and adaptability are immensely useful traits for a CVICU nurse. The often times fast-paced and high-intensity setting also requires detail-oriented nurses who maintain order. Having control over their environment and attention to detail save minutes and seconds when decisions need to be made quickly, or a patient’s condition changes suddenly.

Travel nurses who want to specialize in CVICU, should consider taking positions in medical-surgical units and ICUs to build a foundation of experience toward the CVICU. Special certifications for this specialty are highly encouraged, and by some facilities they are required.

CVICU travel nursing jobs are available across the country, because this specialization is in demand and is so critical to a smoothly running CVICU. Building a travel nurse career in this specialization could open doors to work in some of the nation's best hospitals and experience life in exciting cities.

Job Skills / Requirements:

  • Valid BLS and ACLS from the American Heart Association
  • A valid professional license within the state of practice
  • Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and Critical Care Registered Nurse (CCRN) credentials are recommended and may be required for specific travel nurse positions
  • Other specialty-related certifications are preferred and may be required for specific travel nurse positions
  • Proof of right to work in the United States
  • CVICU experience in a hospital setting

CVICU Travel Nurse Salary and Job Outlook

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!

Travel Nursing Jobs in Arkansas

Homemade food. Country air. Wineries. All the trees… Oh, there is so much to love about Arkansas, which is also known as the “Natural State”. If you decide to embark on a travel healthcare job in the state of Arkansas, you can take in the natural wonder in between the Ozark and Ouachita mountain ranges where the Mississippi River carved out the Arkansas River Valley. Arkansas travel nurse pay is higher than staff nurse pay and ranks moderate on a national level.

While the incredible landscapes and breathtaking sceneries are the most popular highlights of the state of Arkansas, city slickers need not fret. There are plenty of travel nursing jobs in Little Rock, Arkansas, which is the capital and largest city in this state. Within this city, you’re going to find an oasis of entertainment that has every type of music ranging from country to Ozark Mountain Folk to Delta Blues. Arkansas travel nurses who are spending time in Little Rock will enjoy heading down to the River Market district to peruse the various pubs, microbreweries, restaurants, cafes, and live entertainment venues.

Do you have a taste for wine? Thought so! Travel nurses in Arkansas must check out the Mount Bethel Winery in order to taste some local-grown fruit wine. Into something a bit more extravagant? Then your taste buds might do a song and dance to the Wiederkehr Wine Cellars and Vineyard where their selection is more robust.

All over the state, you are going to find plentiful farmers’ markets where you can buy and sample homemade goods such as jellies, jams, and vinegars. Take them back to your free private housing or bring them home as gifts for friends and family. If you’re into politics, you should also check out the Clinton Presidential Library.

If you are a nature lover and want to take full advantage of this beautiful aspect of the state, then you should check out travel nursing jobs close to Hot Springs National Park. There you will find thermal waters that are divine for healing and rejuvenation after working long hours as a nurse. Additionally, this region is also home to tons of hiking and biking trails, waterfalls, and caves. You are going to love the Lost Valley Trail Cave that houses an impressive 35-foot waterfall.
