Creating a sense of community will help you feel more at home, no matter where your assignment takes you.
3. Communicate Your Needs
Effective communication is vital in any healthcare setting, and it’s equally important as a travel nurse.

Clear communication helps ensure that you have the support and resources you need to provide exceptional patient care.
