Why should you use a nurse recruiter?
A nurse recruiter helps RNs find positions throughout the country. Many times we are asked why should I use a nurse recruiter instead of just looking for a position on my own. As a nurse you are important and the demand for your skills and expertise is vital to many facilities across the country. A nurse can certainly perform job searches on their own, send in resumes to prospective employers, follow up on the status of their resume, schedule interviews, etc.
A nurse can also have someone handle all those tasks for them. Nurse recruiters are trained to help candidates find positions that meet their needs and desires. This can help save you substantial time and aggravation. Nurse recruiters understand the positions they have, which ones you would be qualified for, and help you to land that position. One of the biggest reasons for not getting a call back on a position you have applied for is that you may be over or under qualified. Unfortunately for you, this is not the best use of your time.
A good nurse recruiter will already know what their clients are looking for in a nurse when it comes to filling a position. They will use that information and give you the best shot at landing a great job that fits both you and the facility.
Another reason to consider a nurse recruiter would be if you are looking to relocate. Moving to another state or even across the country can be a tough task. A nurse recruiter will help you find positions in an area you may not be familiar with. Being open to a location will vastly help improve your chances of finding a position quickly. Its in these cases that a nurse recruiter is even more beneficial. Searching for jobs in multiple states or throughout the country is a daunting task.
One of the biggest reasons for many nurses to use a recruiter is travel nursing. Travel nurse recruiters are almost a necessity if you are interested in getting into travel nursing or contract work. A travel nurse recruiter is a little different than other recruiters because generally you will work for the recruiter’s agency instead of the facility where you are actually doing the physical work. They will provide you with your wages, benefits, relocation assistance, housing, etc. With a permanent placement recruiter you are employed with the facility that you were placed.
