With Advantage Medical Professionals, you are more than a placement. We have travel nursing jobs to fit your passion in locations across the country.

Types of Travel Nursing Positions

Look into some of our most popular specialties in travel nursing to help you find the position and placement of your dreams.

Emergency Room (ER) Nurse

Registered emergency room nurses — also known as ER nurses — are some of the first individuals to assess a patient for critical injuries once they come into the emergency room of a hospital. ER nurses will encounter patients with a wide variety of often life-threatening conditions, from car accident injuries to heart attacks or strokes.

The ER nursing specialty is always in high demand. You may be suitable for ER travel nursing if you can:

  • Work in a fast-paced environment.
  • Remain calm under pressure.
  • Stay strong around critical injuries.
  • Make critical decisions based on immediate observations.

Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Nurse

Intensive care unit (ICU) nurses — who are also referred to as critical care nurses — work in the ICU of a hospital. What sets them apart from ER nurses is that ICU nurses will work with the same patients over an extended period of time. An ER constantly changes, whereas ICU patients are usually there for their long-term health. An ICU nurse must be familiar with ventilation and IVs, as these are standard practices on the job.

Because of the intensive nature of most conditions in the unit, ICU nurses may only have one or two patients to look after per shift. These patients will require more regular vital checks and medication administration for a more involved nurse-patient relationship. Like ER nurses, ICU nurses are always needed in hospitals and clinics nationwide.

Labor and Delivery (L&D) Nurse

Labor and delivery (L&D) nurses are a popular nursing specialty. In this job, travel L&D nurses can assist mothers as they deliver their babies and bring new life into the world — whether through natural birth or Cesarean section. This position is extremely rewarding as you can spend time getting to know the mothers and share in their joy when they give birth.

L&D nurses are responsible for:

  • Monitoring maternal and fetal health.
  • Communicating well between team members.
  • Assisting in natural or surgical births.
  • Providing support and encouragement.
