Hospitals are usually looking for travelers to have 2 or more years of recent acute care experience. Depending on the hospital, they may also be looking for travel nursing experience as well.
Never traveled before? Our recruiters will match your experience with the right facility so you can get that first travel assignment under your belt!
The standard travel assignment today is 13 weeks, but you will find travel assignments for as few as 6 weeks to as long as 26 weeks.
We take great pride in taking care of our travel nurses. We know how tough your job can be, and we want to make your transitions from assignment to assignment as seamless as possible. That’s why we start planning for your next travel assignment 3 weeks into your current contract. We handle the nitty gritty of extensions and redirects so you don’t have to worry.
Your check will be deposited every Friday at 12:01 AM. Expect a follow up call with your recruiter confirming your paycheck.
We offer unlimited referral bonuses. For every nurse that signs a full 13-week contract with us, you will receive a $500 check for every assignment they work. If you and your referral both work with us, we will bump that up to $750. Click here to refer a nurse.
TotalMed offers a variety of flexible housing solutions to fit your needs and lifestyle. Want to live in the very best housing in a metropolitan area near your assignment?

We help you find the housing solution that works best for you.
Depending on your preference, we generally offer 36-, 40-, or 48-hour work weeks.
We take care of our nurses. When you work with us, you are considered an employee. We have a clinical liaison to be your voice in case any issues arise when you are working.
