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.

Labor and Delivery (L&D) Travel Nursing Jobs

Qualified labor and delivery travel nurses are some of the most sought-after healthcare professionals in the United States. What is labor and delivery nursing? A labor and delivery nurse is one who assists the mother and families throughout the birthing process. They provide care to facilitate the delivery of babies with a team of physicians, midwives, and other healthcare professionals.

Most often referred to as L&D travel nurses, these nurses provide care to women with problematic and normal pregnancies. They educate patients and families by giving them information, hands-on clinical care, and guidance. L&D nurses are highly valued during the birth process and they are the key sources of information and support for not just the mother, but the entire family during and immediately after birth.

There are a few different settings in which you will find labor and delivery nurses working, such as hospitals, clinics, pediatric facilities, health clinics, OB/GYN outpatient offices, maternity and birthing centers. They are in charge of providing assistance to the midwife or physician with all areas of pregnancy and childbirth.

What does a typical labor and delivery nurse job description look like? During labor, the L&D nurse would monitor the length and strength of contractions and fetal heart tones. They also administer medications to the mother and are there to assist with any complications if they arise. Immediately following the birth, L&D travel nurses perform newborn tests and instruct the mother on all aspects of infant care and recovery. Other duties of an L&D nurse might include attending prenatal visits and seeing patients during this time and providing education and family support for expecting mothers. During prenatal visits, an L&D nurse would monitor the patient using advanced equipment, enter pertinent patient data into the medical records system, spend time talking with expectant mothers, and provide a warm point of contact for women and families.

Registered nurses who work on L&D units also assist with labor inducement and designing infant delivery care plans with physicians. Nurses who work in this specialty of nursing need to be competent in the entire birth process from antepartum to neonatal to the newborn nursery. Nurses who work in this field need to be compassionate and positive.

Job Skills / Requirements:

  • Valid BLS and ACLS from the American Heart Association and Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)
  • A valid professional license within the state of practice
  • Intermediate Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nurses (Intermediate AWHONN) and S.T.A.B.L.E. credentials are 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 labor and delivery nurse

L&D Travel Nurse Salary and Job Outlook

Experienced L&D travel nurses are in very high demand and it should not be hard to find opportunities for labor and delivery travel nursing jobs in practically every state. Demand in this area of nursing is consistent year-round, so jobs are plentiful. Travelers who work in labor and delivery will earn well-above the average rate of a staff registered nurse. There is often an urgent need for this type of travel nurse, so sometimes you will find other incentives such as greater pay rates and sign-on/completion bonuses.

If you want to expand your opportunities when it comes to labor and delivery travel nursing jobs, consider additional certifications in inpatient obstetric nursing, low-risk neonatal nursing, maternal newborn nursing, and neonatal intensive care. You can also expand your earning potential if you have skills in operating room, postpartum, post-anesthesia care, and nursery.

Elite Specialty Staffing also offers referral bonuses and other incentives that can further increase pay. L&D travel nurses who work with Elite Specialty Staffing can choose to take free, private, luxurious housing, or a generous housing subsidy.
