Onward Healthcare Releases Infographic as A Guide To Travel Nursing Jobs

Nationwide Survey of Registered Nurses Reveals Demographic Info, Social Media Usage, and Approval Rating of Travel Nursing Jobs

WILTON, CT--(Marketwire - Nov 10, 2011) - Onward Healthcare Inc., one of the nation's leading providers of travel nurse jobs, released data today from a survey of its nationwide base of travel nursing professionals as a new infographic -- A Guide To Travel Nursing Jobs. This survey and the resulting guide were created to educate registered nurses (RNs) about the perks, benefits, and rewarding career options that exist in the travel nursing industry.

Onward Healthcare surveyed over 200 travel registered nurses from across the country about their experiences and professional opinions to form an introspective and educational guide for both current and prospective travel RNs. The information presented includes data on the motivational factors of choosing a travel nursing job, age demographics on when RNs first start traveling, which benefits they value most, and which social media sites they use to stay in touch while on assignment. In addition, the guide highlights the national salary average for travel RNs and depicts a timeline of all required actions from applying to a job to accepting a position.

"We are committed to bringing as much useful information as possible to our nursing professionals to help them navigate their careers and educate those who are considering entering the field of travel nursing," said John Martins, chief operation officer at Onward Healthcare. "Our 'Guide To Travel Nursing Jobs' is an all-encompassing resource that can act as a starting point for any nurse exploring a travel career."

The most encouraging data for nationwide travel nursing companies was that over 97% of respondents said they would recommend travel nursing as a career to fellow nurses.

"It's wonderful to learn that so many professionals in the industry recommend what they do to others," said Deb Shea, Vice President of Travel Nursing for Onward Healthcare. "Travel nurses are such a valuable part of the patient care process for hospitals and the medical community at large, we were thrilled to discover that they feel just as rewarded by their career as their patients and employers feel about their services."

Onward Healthcare has continuously positioned itself as an educational leader in the travel nursing space through their Healthcare Blog, Travel Nursing Insider Podcast, Traveler Resources Articles, and their embrace of social media including Twitter and Facebook. The Guide To Travel Nursing Jobs now furthers these efforts as the company remains on the cutting edge of new age candidate recruitment.
