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. Travel nursing life also allows nurses to have extra downtime, in which they can enjoy the private housing that is included in the full-length travel nursing assignments for critical care nurses.

ICU travel nurses who work with Elite Specialty Staffing will be provided free private housing which will be conveniently located near the location of the assignment. If you plan on traveling with friends, pets, or family members, just let us know and we can accommodate your preferences.

Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit

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

There is a very high demand for CVICU travel nurses throughout the United States. Because this is a highly specialized field of nursing, it can be challenging for healthcare facilities and hospitals to find the qualified nurses they need to fill these roles. Therefore, CVICU travel nursing pay is typically on the higher end of the spectrum in comparison to other travel nursing jobs.

Elite Specialty Staffing also offers referral bonuses and other incentives that can further increase pay. CVICU 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 CVICU travel nurse with Elite Specialty Staffing, you will gain all the lucrative travel nursing benefits we offer. Apply today!

Travel Nursing Jobs in Hawaii

Aloha! Have you always dreamed of going to Hawaii, but never had the vacation time, or the money? If you’re a nurse, this dream can become your reality by getting a travel nursing job in Hawaii with Elite Specialty Staffing.

Travel nurses in Hawaii have the best of two worlds. World one: employment, security, pay, and benefits. World two: They’re already in Hawaii! On days off as a Hawaii travel nurse, you can explore an active volcano, surf, scuba dive, swim with dolphins, go windsurfing, or take part in a number of exciting activities in Hawaii.

Get a snorkel and explore the coral reefs on Oahu, following fishes and being tickled by underwater sea plants, or do a night snorkeling tour to watch the manta rays swimming at sunset. Take classes and get into scuba diving, going deeper into the underwater world.

Cliff jumping is a popular activity for travelers in Hawaii. It was once very culturally significant. King Kahekili would challenge his warriors to jump at Puu Kekaa. Puu Kekaa was believed to be a portal to another realm, where the spirits of the dead jump into the afterworld. Now, the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa has a cliff dive ceremony at this spot every evening at sunset. If you prefer to keep your feet more grounded, go hiking through the island jungles or the famous Kalalau Trail that is notoriously treacherous but epically beautiful. In the winter months, whale watching will inspire you. Do a hop-on hop-off tour on a double decker bus to explore Honolulu and its surroundings. For history buffs, you can spend a day exploring Pearl Harbor.

The beautiful island paradise of Hawaii could be your destination for your next travel healthcare job. Hawaii travel nurse pay correlates to the location of your assignment, and your skills and certifications. Keep in mind that you aren’t the only nurse who thinks Hawaii would be paradise. This is a highly desired assignment and the more advanced your skills and certifications are, the more likely you are to make a dream become reality.
