    AMN Medical express has been an amazing first travel assignment for me. I wanted to stay local to make sure I enjoyed the “travel” type of assignments and still be close to family and friends in case I was way out of my element.

    I was able to work with Alexis O. the recruiter & Michelle A. who is the compliance coordinator. Both ladies had been extremely warm, kind, and have worked on getting me the best salary, stipends, and bonuses possible. So far I have NO complaints with this company. I would recommend to anyone first starting out. Again, this is my first position and I have about 20 other cities I’d love to try to travel in, and I have a wide background (ICU, flight nursing, ER, trauma, psych, step-down, burns, etc.) so I was able to be placed and kind of in high demand very quickly. If you’re considering traveling I would try to work as a float in a hospital first to get as much experience as you possibly can and try to stick with 2-4 main areas you like the best and get recommendations from all of those managers. If you can have 6-12 months as a float nurse, you will have so many more opportunities as a travel nurse and more negotiating power. Make sure you have your certifications up-to-date (BLS, ACLS & PALS if you’re peds or ED). It’s also very helpful to have a trauma and stroke certification. The more skills you can add to your resume, the better off you’ll be and the more “power” you will have for negotiating your terms.

    And fight for what you want. If a company wants you bad enough they will negotiate to your terms completely. For example, my first assignment only needed to be 8 weeks, but I wanted at least a 10 week assignment. I got that. I wanted reimbursement for scrubs, I got a $200 allowance for scrubs. I got a very high stipend and guaranteed overtime if I want it (I’ve always worked overtime, so if I didn’t work it here it would be like taking a pay cut).

    All in all, I highly recommend Medical Express. They worked extremely hard to place me where I wanted to be placed and gave me great feedback for what I need for future assignments in the locations I’d like to be. I got calls/emails multiple times a week to assure I was satisfied and happy and if they could adjust anything in my contract to make it better. I truly believe your recruiter is your biggest asset and some recruiters are lifeless and not great, but Alexis is amazing at what she does. She truly wants her nurses to be happy.
