There are a few things to keep in mind as you start preparing to apply for travel positions.
One common question that job seekers often encounter is the discrepancy between the desired start date mentioned in the job posting and the actual start date. It's important to note that many organizations operate on a timeline that allows for flexibility in start dates. The 6-week window typically allows for a seamless transition, accommodating various factors such as notice periods from your current job, relocation arrangements, and other commitments. This flexibility benefits both the employer and the employee, ensuring a smoother onboarding process.
Additional details about the assignment
While job postings provide a snapshot of the role, responsibilities, and requirements, they don't capture every aspect of the job. This is where the interview comes in. During the interview process, you'll have the opportunity to dive deeper into the role, ask questions about any additional expectations, and gain a clearer understanding of what the position entails. Be prepared to discuss any aspects of the job that weren't explicitly outlined in the posting.
The landscape of travel nursing is evolving, and with it, the assignment lengths. Whether you're seeking a short 6-week assignment or a more extended 13-week assignment, Nomad offers a wide variety of assignment lengths with the opportunity to extend. Please be sure to utilize our assignment length filters when searching for a job to find one that best fits your needs.
Flu vaccines and covid requirements
As the world navigates the ongoing challenges posed by infectious diseases, health precautions have become an integral part of the workplace. Some job postings may stipulate requirements such as a flu vaccine.
In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, requirements can vary based on the nature of the job and prevailing guidelines. Many employers may request candidates to upload proof of a COVID-19 vaccine or a declination, if applicable. These measures aim to create a safe working environment for employees and facilities.
N-95 fit test
An N-95 fit test is a procedure conducted to determine if a respirator mask fits your face properly and provides adequate protection against airborne contaminants.
During the fit test, you'll be asked to wear an N-95 respirator mask and perform various movements such as talking, breathing, and bending to ensure that the mask maintains a proper seal. This test is essential to ensure your safety and the safety of others in environments where respiratory protection is crucial.
To obtain a fit test you can often go to a doctor, healthcare facility, or a certified occupational health clinic to get an N-95 fit test done. Many healthcare providers and clinics offer fit testing services, especially for individuals who require respiratory protection in their workplaces or specific environments.
