Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) play a crucial role in the healthcare industry, providing hands-on patient care and support. However, many professionals in these roles are discovering a unique and exciting career path: travel LVN / LPN. These individuals work as temporary healthcare professionals, often moving from one assignment to another in various healthcare settings. In this article, we'll explore the numerous benefits of becoming a travel LVN / LPN.
One of the most appealing aspects of being a travel LVN / LPN is the exposure to a wide range of clinical settings. Travel nurses often work in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, clinics, and other healthcare facilities. This diversity in experience helps them broaden their clinical skills, adaptability, and problem-solving abilities. Working with different patient populations and medical conditions keeps the job exciting and provides opportunities for personal and professional growth.
Travel LVN / LPNs often enjoy higher pay rates than their full-time counterparts. The compensation includes base pay as well as tax-exempt stipends. The combination of higher salaries and benefits can significantly increase your income. This financial advantage can be particularly attractive if you have student loans or other financial responsibilities to meet.
Travel nursing offers greater flexibility in terms of work schedules. Travel assignments could be as short as a few weeks or several months. This flexibility allows you to plan your work around personal commitments and vacations, making it a fantastic option for those who value work-life balance.
Travel LVN / LPNs have the privilege of building a vast network of professional contacts across different healthcare facilities. This extensive network can be invaluable for future career opportunities and personal growth. The relationships established with fellow healthcare professionals and facilities can open doors to new job opportunities, recommendations, and lifelong friendships.
Travel nursing allows you to explore new regions, cities, and cultures while building your career. Whether you're interested in the vibrant city life, the tranquility of rural areas, or the beauty of coastal locations, travel LVN / LPN positions can take you to places you've always dreamed of visiting. It's a unique way to see the world while gaining professional experience.
Travel nursing can be a life-changing experience. It forces you to step out of your comfort zone, adapt to new environments, and overcome challenges. This personal growth can boost your self-confidence and help you become more adaptable and resourceful in your professional and personal life.
The more skills you have, the more marketable you are as a traveler. Make sure to document all your skills, including the skills acquired after you start traveling. Also, inform your recruiter of any updates so they can revise your profile, including updated EMR experience or experience at a teaching or trauma hospital.
To secure an excellent assignment, be flexible in your location and shift. Also, avoid limiting demands for days off and blocked schedules.
The most successful travel nurses are the ones who can hit the ground running and require little handholding. Every new skill helps you edge out those who need more experience and pushes you higher up the list of exceptional candidates.
