5 Benefits of Working on Contract

Nursing is an exciting profession. There are so many paths you can take with the one career choice. One path that many take is working as a “travel nurse” or aka “contract nurse”. Some nurses hear about working contract, but aren’t sure how it works and what the benefits consist of. Here are just five of the many reasons why nurses decide to go on contract.

1.       Pay- Everyone loves receiving a nice paycheck, right? When on contract, typically, a nurse will get paid substantially higher compared to being a permanent employee at a hospital.   

2.       Insurance- After 60 days of being on contract, a nurse is eligible to receive medical, dental and life insurance.

*We cover 50% of the nurse's medical and dental and 100% of  vision and life insurance. 

3.       Experience-If you are looking for a way to gain great experience, this is the way to go. A typical contract is 13 weeks long. Each contract, you can gain experience with different specialties in different environments and settings. The more experience you have, the more money you are likely to make!

4.        Support-When working on contract, you will have a recruiter that you will keep in contact with throughout. The recruiter is there to answer any and all questions you may have 24/7, as well as make sure everything is all set for your next assignment. It makes life so much easier on you!

Greetings-on-the-Phone-image.jpg

5.       Meet new people- Another great benefit of working on contract is getting to meet new people. With every contract and hospital you work at, the more connections you are going to make. This can benefit you in the future. Isn’t it true-it’s all about who you know? With knowing more people in the healthcare field, comes more opportunities!

The Truth About Alzheimer's

Alzheimer’s is a neurodegenerative disease. Some people think it just has to do with memory loss, but it’s so much more than that. It’s a progressive disease that slowly gets worse over time, while memory loss is just one indication of that. Alzheimer’s is actually the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.

The Alzheimer’s Association explains that memory loss is totally normal when ageing. There is a difference though when it comes to different types of forgetfulness. Learn the Early Symptoms  of Alzheimer’s.

June is National Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. Show your support and help us bring awareness.

What can you do?

1.       Turn Facebook Purple.  Change your profile picture to the “I go purple to end Alz” to bring awareness to all of your friends and family on Facebook.

2.       Wear Purple. Wear the color proudly.

3.       Share Why You Go Purple- go on social media and explain to others why you are wearing that specific color. Use hashtags #ENDALZ & #MyAlzStory

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, since the year 2000, deaths from heart disease have decreased by 14% while deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have increased by 89%.  With the increase of Americans with Alzheimer’s Disease comes a need for more nurses in the healthcare industry. The top hospitals in the Kansas City area need nurses like you that can truly make a difference in someone’s life.  Are you ready to join the squad and be that difference?
