Trust is the foundation of any relationship, be it personal, professional, or societal. And here at SkillGigs, we would argue that trust is at the top of the list for travel nurses looking for their next gig. Travel nurses often work in unfamiliar environments where they are surrounded by unfamiliar systems, processes, people, and teams. It’s this level of unknown, that makes their relationship with the team that placed them so important.
To be a travel nurse on SkillGigs means, you are working with a dedicated SkillGigs team member (typically called a Healthcare Relationship Manager or Market Manager) to help you find a facility that gives you the pay you deserve. Once you are locked on contract, SkillGigs is your employer of record while the facility is your employment manager. In other words, a travel nurse’s trust in SkillGigs is where it all begins for a successful assignment.
