Are you looking for a nursing job? Have you considered working with a staffing agency? If not, you may be missing out on a fantastic opportunity.
What advantages can an employment agency offer? Here are four notable benefits for both entry-level and experienced medical professionals.
- Try Out Different Roles and Settings
A nurse can work in a variety of environments from a large research hospital to a single doctor’s office to an elementary school. Similarly, a nurse’s roles range from geriatrics to pediatrics and from emergency rooms to rehabilitation centers. What’s your best fit? Maybe you have no idea. Or, maybe you are unhappy in your current situation. You don’t know what you want, but you’d like to experiment with something else. By working with a staffing service, you can test new positions without making a long-term commitment. If something works out, great! If not, you can move on to your next assignment until you find the right job for you.
- Build Your Skill Set
Changing roles and settings allows you to become a more well-rounded and versatile caregiver. Every position provides chances for learning and growth. Your experiences will help you quickly navigate new situations, effectively communicate with doctors and co-workers and successfully interact with all types of patients. This is a wonderful way to perfect your nursing skills and to build your resume.
- Take Jobs Based on Your Schedule
Nursing is known for long and inconvenient hours including weekends, evenings and holidays. If this lifestyle is not for you, the professional recruiters at an employment agency can assist you in finding positions that fit your timetable. Are you looking for full-time work? Part-time work? A temporary assignment? Or, are you only looking to work during certain hours such as weekdays, weekends or evenings? Rather than going through a frustrating search on your own, let a recruiter do the work for you. Staffing firms have connections with local hospitals and medical facilities. They are aware of open jobs and can quickly match you to a position that best meets your requirements.
- Earn Competitive Pay
When you partner with a staffing firm, you may be able to earn more money than if you were working on your own. Since you are an employee of the employment agency, the hospital or medical facility doesn’t have the added expense of covering your benefits or insurance costs. This allows them to compensate you with higher wages. Meanwhile, depending upon the arrangement, the staffing service may offer you additional perks such as free training or paid time off.
