Frequently asked questions

Become A Traveler

Where Do You Have Contracts?


We have contracts all over the country in all types of units (ICU, ER, OR, etc). To find what we have available you may use the browse jobs.




How is Your Pay Structured?


Whether you run a job quote yourself or a recruiter helps you, you'll be able to view from left to right the structure of a quote. Job details, Stipend Details, Taxable pay details, Insurance details, and finally weekly pay. If you want to adjust something, we will be happy to help! Quotes are meant to be an accurate good faith commitment so that both the nurse and the company say "yes, lets move forward..."




What if I Haven't Been Working in a Hospital?


Unfortunately you have to have been in a hospital setting within the past year and any gaps in employment will need an explanation.




Can I Contract in a Different Unit?


We can only place you in the unit you have the most recent experience in. Facilities will not train travelers.




Do You Offer Insurance?


Yes, we offer insurance to our full time contracted employees that work 32 or more hours per week.




Can I Turn Down an Offer?


Yes, you may turn down an offer as long as you have not already accepted it.




I Submitted to a Specific Job Through Another Agency, But I'd Rather Work With You....


As long as you have not already accepted with the other agency, you are able to with a written letter stating you no longer want to work with your current agency. Other conditions may apply.





What We Offer

Do I Get a Sign-on Bonus?


Sign on bonuses are available but vary from job to job. If a particular job is posted at a lower rate or in a high cost housing area, we find that resources can be better applied to helping a traveler more specifically than a sign on bonus can offer. As a policy, we aim to pay more competitively across industry jobs as the higher priority.




Do You Offer a 401k?


Not at this time. The best alternative is that we refer people to getting a rollover IRA which serves the same tax benefit and you as the employee can carry with you to whichever company you work for at any time.




Can You Help Ship My Car?


Yes, but typically this detail is after we have already arranged a contract. In the past, we manage add on requests such as this on a case by case basis




How Do You Handle Housing?


We narrow our focus to searching for housing using these methods as options. Searching Furnished apartments, extended stays and vacation rentals. As a worst case scenario, we have rented furniture and delivered to an unfurnished apartment that accommodates a short term lease.




Do You Offer Extension Bonuses?


It depends on the situation. If we were extremely competitive on pay compared to industry standards, we often will communicate that we are limited in this area. If there's an opprotunity to keep a traveler happy, we will do everything possible.




Do You Offer Insurance?


Yes, we offer insurance to our full time contracted employees that work 32 or more hours per week.




Do You Pay For Orientation?


On-Site Facility orientations are treated as regular, payable hours. At home computer modules are compensated at a set amount. A typical reimbursement for at home computer modules is $200.00




How does Travelmed handle reimbursements of certifications?


Our priority is to pay higher on contract pay than our competitors. This limits us with reimbursements to typically only being able to help with 1 certification renewal per contract. Requests must be approved in writing in order to be processed.
