Rehab Travel Nurses
Most commonly referred to as “rehab” nurses, rehabilitation nurses are those who help patients who are still in need of nursing care adapt to lifestyle changes following a sickness, illness, or surgery or for patients with a disability or chronic disease. Rehab travel nurses teach patients new skills to help them adapt to daily living while providing additional nursing care services.
The maximum goal of nurses who work in rehab is to help patients maintain or attain maximum function. These nurses assess the needs of their patients and then they develop and implement nursing plans of care that are designed to meet those medical needs. Rehab nursing jobs require the nurse to work closely alongside physicians to help coordinate care based on patients’ prognosis and treatment plans.
Some of the duties of rehabilitation nurses include:
- Administering medication
- Performing dressing changes
- Creating a nurturing environment for healing
- Coordinating activities to facilitate teaching for discharge planning and home care
- Providing direction and supervision of ancillary nursing personnel
Rehab travel nurses work in inpatient and outpatient healthcare settings in facilities that range from subacute to acute. Travel nurses who work in this nursing specialty must have specialized knowledge and patience to work with people who suffer from chronic disease and illness.
Certain skills that are good for rehab nurses to have include the ability to delegate effectively within a team environment and effective written and oral communication skills which are important for the development of a rapport with the patients, their families, and the healthcare team. These nurses are critical resources for patients who are going home with a new regimen and life to adapt to.
Job Skills / Requirements:
- Valid BLS from the American Heart Association
- A valid professional license within the state of practice
- Other specialty-related certifications are preferred and may be required for specific travel nurse positions
- Proof of right to work in the United States
- Acute or subacute rehabilitation nursing experience
