Travel Nurses and Recruiters: The Perfect Pair

December 22, 2021 | Clinician Stories

Becoming a travel nurse is an exciting step in your career and an amazing way to check things off your bucket list while helping communities in need. We know there are so many things to consider when it comes to choosing the best travel nurse agency. How many jobs do they have? What benefits (like sick time and health insurance) do they offer? How much will you get paid? All of this information is vital to your decision-making process.

But one thing that can’t be overlooked is the importance of the recruiter and traveler relationship. Who’s in your corner? Who will help you craft your career? Who’s giving you advice and championing you behind the scenes? When you work with Aya, you get a career agent, advocate and sounding board all in one person: your recruiter.  They don’t want to just “find you a job” — they take the time to understand your unique desires so they can find you a job that best fits your personal and professional goals. Aya recruiters pride themselves on being knowledgeable and communicative; but above all else, that the traveler and their career come first.

How a Great Travel Nurse Recruiter Makes All the Difference

From matching you to the best jobs to answering any questions that come up while on assignment, your recruiter always has your best interests at heart. But don’t just take our word for it. Here are some real-life examples of how the trust, transparency and communication between a recruiter and traveler make all the difference:

“In late 2018, I became interested in travel nursing and was referred to Aya by a friend. I delayed my journey until Feb 2020, but my recruiter, Delaney Bestolarides, remained patient until I was ready to take the jump. Since that time, I have completed two contracts (both of which I extended on) and am about to begin my third contract. With Delaney, I never feel pressured to accept a job. She has my best interests at heart, and I feel that I can call her with any concern or question. Additionally, her assistant and the rest of the Aya team have also been wonderful every step of the way. I look forward to working with this team for the rest of my travel journey.” – Dava H.

“Wow! What an experience! My recruiter is Skyler, and he is PHENOMENAL. This was my very first travel experience and it has been nothing short of rewarding, fun, invigorating and simply great. Skyler has made this such a great and easy experience. Being away from home is something that can be challenging, but when you have a recruiter in your corner that understands your sacrifice and hard work it all becomes worth it. If you’ve ever needed a sign to do travel nursing, this is it and Skyler will be there every step of the way! Skyler and Aya, I thank you. My family thanks you. Most importantly my future thanks you!” – Kiara B.

“My recruiter Rebekah Ghan always listens to what I’m telling her when we discuss different job opportunities and places I’m interested in going. She doesn’t push me toward one particular place when I’m looking for a new position or contract. She guides me with her knowledge, experience, and skills so I can make a better-informed decision. She has the highest degree of integrity; she is always available when needed and takes great care of me.” – Vicki K.

If you’re nervous about traveling for the first time or wondering if trying a new agency might be a completely different experience, we welcome you to talk with an Aya recruiter. They will support you, walk you through every detail and help you build the travel nursing career of your dreams.
