Why choose Wanderly?
Historically, travel nurses sought contracts through travel nursing agencies. This process was awkward and time-consuming, as nurses had to suffer through the time and paperwork required by each individual application process for an agency contract. Rather than subjecting applicants to this lengthy undertaking, Wanderly places power back in the hands of the travel nurses. We provide a platform where nurses can easily discover contracts with the conditions that best suit them.
As the profession continues to grow, so do the number of travel nursing agencies: there are currently over five hundred. Instead of forcing travel nurses to research positions on their own, reach out to different agencies, and visit dozens of different agency websites and application forms, Wanderly compiles all of the listings of each agency in one place, right here. Next, our filter features allow users to refine their search results based on the criteria that are most important to them. These can include anything from specific specialties, to preferred agencies or hospitals, to minimum pay preferences, or even desired shift times. For example, a nurse who really wants to visit the west coast in the summer may enter the desired location of California with an available starting time of June 21, and compare listings that match those requirements.
Additional services like the “Agencies” page of Wanderly make it easy to view the benefits provided by different agencies, as well as feedback provided by other nurses about their recruiters. For example, the agency Maxim Healthcare Services currently has a five star rating on Wanderly. Nurses who worked with this agency’s recruiters in the past gave them perfect scores in the categories of integrity, communication, work ethic, responsiveness, and support. This page also shows that Maxim Healthcare offers a variety of benefits including holiday pay, life insurance, and 24/7 customer support. Nurses who want more information are also able to use Wanderly to chat anonymously with recruiters, maintaining their privacy while facilitating uncomplicated online communication. Using nurse feedback to grade travel agencies and making the list of the benefits that they offer easily accessible is tremendously important in increasing transparency in the travel nursing industry. The openness offered by Wanderly in regard to the quality of different agencies makes it easier than ever to quickly compare travel agencies.
Once a user has utilized Wanderly’s filtered search to find a job that includes the criteria they need and is through an agency they like, applications are streamlined and easy. Because Wanderly centralizes so many agencies and job opportunities on one website, nurses only have to upload all of their documentation one time. From there, any time they want to apply to a job, they only have to select “submit” and the relevant paperwork that they had previously uploaded will be dispatched to a hiring team. This offers a massive improvement over the application processes that had previously taken place on individual agency websites, wherein the same paperwork had to be submitted time and time again.
To recap: Wanderly has effectively streamlined the entire travel nursing application system by aggregating job offers to one platform and storing application documents, and furthermore has added much-needed transparency to the hiring process by including nurse feedback and available benefits in agency profiles. Using Wanderly to compare different travel agencies is a no-brainer. Get started today!
