Navigating the Paperwork Jungle

June 6, 2024

A Travel Nurse’s Guide to Credentialing

So, you want to be a travel registered nurse. Congrats! Adventure, new places, diverse experiences, and yes, a mountain of paperwork await you. Before you can start your assignment and bask in the glory of being a healthcare hero in a new city, you’ll need to tackle a series of documents and tests. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back (and a healthy dose of humor) to guide you through it.

Step 1: Apply Now!

First things first: apply. This might be the easiest step, so enjoy it while it lasts. Think of it as the calm before the storm.

Step 2: The Document Scavenger Hunt

Here’s where the fun begins. You’ll need to collect the following documents. Picture it like a scavenger hunt, but instead of finding a rubber chicken, you’re finding proof that you’re a medical professional.

Step 3: Skills Checklist and Tests

Once you’ve tackled the paperwork mountain, it’s time to show off your skills. You’ll need to pass some exams and fill out a skills checklist. We will send you a link to the exam once an offer has been extended.

  • Pass 80% for Your Specialty: We provide the exam for free and you get three attempts. Third time’s the charm, right?
  • Pass 80% on RN – Medication/Pharmacology – General Exam: Same deal here. Free exam, three attempts.

Step 4: Stay Ahead of the Game

Pro tip: Submit all these documents early so you’re not scrambling at the last minute. Nobody likes a panicked nurse (except maybe TV drama producers). Email everything to documents@intellistaffmedical.com and breathe a sigh of relief.

Step 5: Keep Your Hard-Earned Results

You put in the work, so you should get to keep the results. Take your exam results and skills checklists with you. They’re like your travel nurse passport and are valid for up to a year. While we hope to keep working with you, we understand sometimes the perfect match might be elsewhere.

So, there you have it, your guide to getting your paperwork in order. Now go forth and conquer the world of travel nursing! And remember, while the paperwork might be a hassle, the experiences you’ll gain are worth every signature and stamp.
