Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a travel therapist or nurse with TravelMed USA?
The first step to becoming a traveling therapist or nurse is to complete a quick contact form. If you have a few more minutes we recommend that you take some time to fill out your travel profile. This process does not take much time at all. All we need are some of your basic travel interests, skills checklist, two professional references, and a copy of your resume. After that we can start marketing your resume to selected facility settings and preferred areas of travel. All of your information is kept strictly confidential.
What happens once I submit my quick contact form?
Once we receive your contact information, one of our recruiting agents will contact you to begin the process of finding the right assignment for you. If you have completed your travel profile already, this process will move even faster. You and your recruiter will work together to find the travel therapy or nursing jobs that best suit your skills, preferences and career ambitions.
What are the minimum requirements to be a traveler with TravelMed USA?
You must be a graduate of an accredited professional program, and have recent experience in your specialty. For most specialties, you need 12 consecutive months of experience; however, for some high-demand specialties, you can begin traveling earlier depending on facility need and your current skill level. For instance, if you are a physical therapist some facilities that have an ongoing need for PT help may take on a recent new grad if the facility has a veteran PT to supervise and help you throughout your treatments and evaluations.
Am I under any obligation after submitting my contact information and/or traveler profile?
