New and experienced travel nurses will learn current industry trends, standards and the opportunities that are available when they attend the annual Travelers Conference starting Tuesday in Las Vegas. It’s a great way for healthcare professionals to meet staff of the companies they work for but rarely get to meet in person. In this industry, most travelers never have the chance to put a face to a name because we work so much by phone and email. The conference also offers the opportunity to interact with other travelers from across the country and gather important tips and information from travel industry experts.
Not only will healthcare professionals learn through networking and sharing experiences but also through the many seminars and round tables that are available at the conference. Agency professionals can provide nurses a unique and broad view of travel nursing and help them understand facility perspectives. While visiting agency booths, think through the hard questions that need to be answered and feel comfortable asking them.
Healthcare professionals who visit the TRS booth will discover the advantages of working with a nurse-owned and operated travel agency. We welcome the chance to tell anyone about TRS and answer any questions you might have about us or travel healthcare. Jan Steele, TRS senior recruiter, and Gregg Buck, TRS director of recruiting, will be at The Right Solutions’ booth handing out goodies and answering your questions. While at our booth, you can apply with TRS. Those who apply will receive a TRS T-shirt or fruit infusion water bottle, while supplies last. So feel free to stop by and say hi to Jan and Gregg.
Also, be sure to check inside your bag when you arrive at the conference. There will be a retractable ID badge holder with a TRS postcard attached. At the bottom of the postcard is an entry form for a Kindle Fire HD giveaway. Fill out the form and drop it off at our booth to enter to win the Kindle Fire. The drawing will take place at the conference Wednesday.
Healthcare professionals are encouraged to listen to and meet as many of the speakers as they can. A nurse who has taken the time to learn about traveling before starting the adventure will be better adjusted and satisfied while on assignment. We look forward to meeting you at the conference. You’re a nurse, not a number!
