Ways healthcare travelers can avoid housing scams

As a healthcare traveler, it can sometimes be difficult to find the right housing, especially if it’s your first assignment. A perfect opportunity may finally present itself and you may want to take advantage of it immediately. However, there are several housing scams to be aware of. Using a trustworthy website to find housing, verifying with your recruiter and doing some research of your own will ensure you’re not getting scammed.

Every traveler wants to find affordable and safe housing. As one of the best medical staffing travel agencies, RTG Medical wants our traveling healthcare professionals to know what types of housing scams exist so that if you ever run into any, you’re able to avoid getting scammed. Below are common housing scams, red flags to look out for and how to avoid them when looking for a place to live.

Common housing scams

A good landlord is running a business and will ensure there are good photos to highlight their properties, as well as sufficient information about the property and location. A rental shown in the best light is a good sign that it’s legitimate. When you notice an ad that is short in detail along with blurry photos of the property, it’s probably fake and best to move on to the next. Always take the time to report the ad for your fellow healthcare travelers. Below are the two most common housing scams:

Fake ads

Fake ads often have little information and few photos. If it was a real landlord behind the ad, they would put the work in to make sure the ad contained plenty of info and images to intrigue you. On the other hand, you might notice really nice images that catch your eye, but they will likely follow with information that seems too good to be true. Rental prices should also be consistent with other houses in the area, so if you see tons of amenities for a bargain of a price, it’s most likely a scam.

Identity theft ads

The next type of scam is identity theft. This is when the thief has stolen the identity of the landlord and is posing as them to sell the property and potentially receive money. This type is less obvious than the other, but you should be able to sense that something is off with the “landlord.” If they are unable to show you the place for an odd reason or seem overly urgent  for you to choose this place, they could be trying to scam you. 

Red flags to look for

When searching for housing, be sure to notice these red flags:

A dramatic storyline as to why the landlord cannot meet you

If they are on vacation, stuck overseas or cannot meet because they are sick, avoid interacting with them any further. Report the ad. Real landlords have a streamlined process making it easy for both parties involved.

Landlord being unable to meet in person

You should always be able to meet the landlord. Even if the housing is in a different state than the landlord, he should have someone in that location to meet with you. If the landlord is always coming up with an excuse to cancel, it’s probably a scammer.

Unusual communication hours

If you see that you’re getting replies to your emails or phone calls at unexpected times like 3 a.m., the person is probably located in a different time zone or overseas and is trying to scam you.

Poorly written emails with European spelling

This is another tell tale sign of scamming. If you have a hard time trying to decipher the email, or if you notice grammatical errors and spelling mistakes, that’s a huge red flag. A real landlord will be sure they come across as professional.

The landlord wants you to wire funds

There are a plethora of ways to make rent payments besides wiring funds. When you wire funds, you are unable to get your money back. Beware of scams through Venmo, as well, and deter the conversation and avoid this scammer.

The use of high-pressure sales tactics

If you’re hearing a lot of, “tons of other people are interested in this property” and “you need to apply as quickly as possible,” it’s likely you’re dealing with a scammer. Reputable landlords go through an application and verification process to get you all set up to move in. If you feel rushed, trust your gut instinct and move on to a different option.

How to avoid housing scams

One way to avoid scams is to use a reputable site. Websites like Travel Nurse Housing and Furnished Finder are two good ones to go through. Furnished Finder requires the landlord to verify their identity before they can post listings.

You can use Google Maps to make sure this house exists where it says it does. You can also run the images on the listing through a Google search to verify that there is no other real listing and that you’re looking at a scam. Scammers are good at their jobs, but you can take these precautions to help ensure you don’t get scammed and that they get caught.

Ensure success with the best medical staffing travel agencies 

Being aware of these scams and following these tips is a good way to find real housing. Take your time when looking for housing and be sure to use a reputable site. If you have to, do some sleuthing of your own. As one of the best medical staffing travel agencies, RTG Medical is here to help. Contact us or your recruiter with any questions or concerns.

Workout apps for healthcare travelers

It can be difficult to stay healthy and find time for a good workout while on the go from assignment to assignment. It’s more convenient to stop at a fast food restaurant while driving to your next destination or to go home and sleep after a long day of work. However, after getting in a good workout for the day, you might feel and sleep better.

Getting into a regular exercise routine can be difficult when you work with travel healthcare companies, and a gym membership isn’t the most convenient when you’re constantly on the go. Taking the extra time to drive to the gym for a workout may not fit into your schedule, even if you have a gym membership that allows you to go anywhere in the United States. A workout app is a great way to incorporate a workout into a busy schedule, and we wanted to provide you with some of the best workout apps for healthcare travelers.

1. Peloton

Peloton is known primarily for its cycling classes, but it also offers strength and stretching workouts. You can easily complete these workouts in an apartment or a smaller room in the house you’re staying in without any weights. There are also courses for dumbbells and weights if you have them. There are also outside workouts you can enjoy, so you don’t have to confine yourself to exercising inside.

2. Nike Run Club

A great running club is Nike Run Club, especially if you run in various locations all the time. Your personal fitness goals can be mapped out using this running program, no matter where you are. It also offers a free 7-day trial.

3. Down Dog

If you’re into yoga, Down Dog is a must. The app walks you through yoga poses, HIIT, meditation, barre, running and even prenatal yoga. You can choose the amount of time you want to practice and pick your level of focus, and the app will create a personalized yoga workout for you every time.

4. ROMWOD

ROMWOD offers stretching exercises. If yoga isn’t quite your thing, you can still stretch your body with the help of this app. There are 15-20 minute videos that guide you through different stretches. This app will keep your body moving.

5. Strava and MyFitnessPal

Strava and MyFitnessPal both help when it comes to fitness tracking. Strava can keep track of your runs, weightlifting sessions and more. MyFitnessPal helps you track your nutrition and keeps you in line with your fitness goals.

Tips for night shifts as a travel healthcare professional

As there are with most things, there are pros and cons to becoming a traveling healthcare professional. One of the major benefits is traveling around the country while doing what you love. On the other hand, a con could be having to work a couple of night shifts.

Night shifts aren’t all bad news though. There are advantages to doing night shifts, such as higher pay and quieter shifts. However, if you are not used to working during the night, it can be quite difficult to adjust.

There are a few simple changes you can make to make your night shift easier. Our healthcare travel agency team wants to share some tips for mastering the night shift as a travel healthcare professional. 

Tips for night shifts as a travel healthcare professional

Create a sleeping schedule

The hardest thing about the night shift for some people is readjusting your sleeping schedule. You should make it your goal to get at least seven hours of sleep. Mayo Clinic reports that adults should get seven or more hours of sleep each night

One of the best ways to get the hours you need is by creating a sleep schedule and sticking to it. Also, do all the things you normally do when you are about to sleep. For example, you should wash your face and brush your teeth or read a book if that’s what you usually do. Do not forget to buy some blackout curtains or shades, which will help create a darker environment that is better for sleep.

Try to stay alert

Night shifts can be relatively slow shifts depending on the day or your department. During long shifts, it can be difficult to keep your mind alert. You should try to do things that will keep your mind sharp and alert.

There are several ways you can stay alert, like completing tasks that will lend a helping hand to the day shift nurses. If you find yourself with even more extra time, you should try:

  • Reading a book
  • Doing puzzles and sudokus 
  • Reading medical and nursing journals
  • Listening to podcasts 

Do not drink too much caffeine 

Caffeinated drinks are a must for all night shifts. Some popular caffeinated drinks that healthcare workers drink include coffee, energy drinks and soft drinks. However, you should be cautious about your caffeine intake. 

Drinking too much caffeine may make falling asleep tough when you get home. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration considers 400 milligrams or four cups of brewed coffee as a safe amount of caffeine for healthy adults.

Exercise regularly

Aside from managing your mental health, you should also be managing your physical health. Exercising regularly can provide you advantages as a night shift healthcare worker. It helps increase alertness, fight fatigue and keep your weight under control

Even if you do not have enough time to hit the gym every day, move around on the job. One way you can increase your physical activity is by taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Also, ask if your facility has wellness programs and worksite fitness centers for their employees.

What to do if your pay is cut during your assignment

Pay cuts have increased as the staffing demand in hospitals and other healthcare facilities has decreased since Covid-19. However, it can still come as a shock when your pay gets cut mid-assignment. You and your recruiter negotiated and agreed on a contract, so what happened?

If your pay does get cut midway through your contract, you will be notified by either your recruiter or the head of the top healthcare travel company you’re currently working at. It is unlikely that they will cut your pay without telling you, but it’s important to keep track of your hours so that if you notice a mishap in your paycheck, you can pinpoint where exactly it happened. We hope it never happens, but if it does, here’s what to do!

Contact your recruiter

Your recruiter may have already reached out to you with the news. You will want to keep in contact with them to help decide what you should do now, as your recruiter can help figure out what opportunities are available. If you’re more than halfway through your 13-week assignment, it might be best to stick it out with the decreased pay, depending on how much it was cut by. If you’re just starting to get accumulated with where you are though, you likely have the option to find a new contract with better pay.

Recruiters can also help you determine if there are any other contacts in the same or close by that pay more; sometimes pay cuts are across all facilities, not just one. Additionally, they can help you decide whether starting over in a new place is worth the effort.

Find out the reason why

Find out exactly when your pay is changing so that you know how long you have to decide whether to stay or leave. Then, know the standard rate for your position and the location you are in. You can then see what other jobs in the area are paying; some might be similar, others might be higher or lower.

Look at the pros and cons

It is important to consider all of the factors. Does moving to a different location make sense? What are the new standards in this industry and are there other jobs with higher rates? How will this cut affect your budget for the duration of your contract? Do you like your current job, your coworkers and your patients? How does this affect your career? Will your pet be able to travel to a new area so quickly?

Make the next move

Once you have considered all your options with the help of your recruiter, it’s time to move forward. You can either accept the pay cut and finish the contract, or decline it and end the contract. You will likely have to sign some paperwork either confirming or denying the pay cut.

Continue working with the top healthcare travel companies

RTG Medical is here to help you throughout each and every contract. It’s important to stay positive. You didn’t do anything wrong, sometimes the healthcare industry or related organizations have to make pay cuts for a variety of reasons. You can always find another assignment out there through one of the top healthcare travel companiesContact us or your recruiter today if you have any questions or concerns.

Driving vs. flying to your next assignment

After you have all your ducks in a row for your next assignment, you will need to decide whether you want to drive or fly. There are pros and cons to both driving and flying. You should consider whether you will be traveling with a pet, where you will be going, the amount of money you will be receiving in your travel stipend and your own personal preferences when choosing a destination. Travel medical staffing agencies, such as RTG Medical, can help you decide which is best!

Driving to your assignment

Healthcare professionals most often prefer to drive over flying when working for travel medical staffing agencies. Here are some pros of driving to your assignment:

You’ll have your car with you to get around. There will be no worries about getting to and from work, the grocery store or the bank. You will need a way to get around on your own, especially if you are going to a small town without public transportation.

You can take more things with you. Most contracts are 13 weeks, and some find it difficult to fit that many weeks worth of clothes and necessities in their carry-on or checked bag. When you drive, you have your whole car to fill with things you might want or need with you.

You can make a fun road trip out of it. Have you always wanted to visit a National Park? Driving to your destination gives you the option of stopping at all sorts of interesting places along the way.

You can bring company. If you’re interested in bringing somebody along on your next assignment, whether it be your family, a friend, significant other or pet, driving could be the right choice. Driving together could make for a fun adventure with your family or friends, and it’s much easier to travel with pets in a car. Plus, having someone to accompany you on the trip is always nice.

Flying to your assignment

Although there are many benefits in driving to your assignment, there’s also plenty of good that can come from flying. Here are a few pros of flying to your assignment:

Flying gets you to the destination quicker. Flying is faster, especially if road trips aren’t your favorite thing. With driving you have to be wary that a flat tire or another roadside problem could occur, and you don’t have to worry about any of that if you are flying. Flight delays and cancellations are most of the time easier to handle than car trouble.

Many places have public transportation. Rather than having to rent a car or ship your car, many big cities offer public transportation. Plus, you wouldn’t want the burden of your car being with you in a big city like New York.

You can still enjoy day trips. When you drive, you can stop and see places along the way, but when you fly, you can still take a day off to visit somewhere you’ve always wanted to. You can take an Uber or rent a car for a day, if needed.

Begin your adventure with RTG Medical

Whether you choose to drive or fly, your adventure awaits! If you still need help deciding, we’re here to help. Feel free to ask your recruiter at your travel medical staffing agency their opinion on which might be best for this assignment, especially if you’re new to being a traveling healthcare professional.

Pros & cons of traveling healthcare

Before deciding on joining a healthcare staffing company, it is essential to know all the pros and cons. For many, the pros outweigh the cons. There are several great reasons to become a traveling healthcare professional. If you love your current job but also love traveling, this might just be a great fit for you. Here are some tips to help you decide whether or not to become a traveling healthcare professional.

Pros

Traveling

Traveling is a huge advantage of this job. You get to spend quality time in the places you’ve always wanted to visit, much more than the usual short vacation. If you’re an adventure seeker or have a list of places you’ve always wanted to see, working in a career that allows you to travel is a dream come true.

Meeting amazing people

Traveling and working in different facilities will give you the chance to meet all sorts of new people. You will get to make connections with amazing people and build friendships that will last a lifetime.

Gaining a unique experience

Jumping from assignment to assignment will advance your skill set. Every location you visit and contact you make provides you with the opportunity to learn new techniques. During this course, you will be faced with challenges, and you will be able to figure out how to solve them efficiently. 

Flexibility

Having control over when and where you work provides a freedom that is difficult to find in other jobs. Together with your recruiter, you can find a place you love to work and a job you love to do. You also have the flexibility to take as much time off as needed in between contracts.

Trying it out before you dive in

This applies to both places and jobs. Maybe you want to try a new position; this type of job allows you to test it out on a 13 or 26 week contract before fully committing to it. As you live in different places, you can eventually choose where you want to settle.

Job security

Nurses, therapists, radiologists, pharmacists, lab technicians and more are always in demand. You are not confined to one city and state when you’re a traveling healthcare professional. You can find any potential job anywhere in the country.

Cons

You are always the new guy

If you’re outgoing and friendly, you won’t have any problems fitting in with the permanent med staff. While bouncing from one contract to the next, you are always a new member of the team.

Varying pay

Each contract will likely offer different pay and benefits. Your salary will be consistent, but some jobs may pay more or less than others depending on a variety of factors. Regardless, the job that pays less this time may be made up for with the next paying much more.

Away from family and friend support

Many find a support system within their family and friends. While traveling, you can only reach them via audio or video phone calls, texting or social media. This can be difficult for some, but returning home and being able to tell them about your latest adventure makes it worth it.

Frequent job searching

Every 13 to 26 weeks, you will be in the position again of needing to find your next job. RTG Medical pairs you up with one recruiter who will be there to support you throughout the job search. You may be able to get set up for your next assignment during your current one, but there is always the associated stress with not knowing where you’ll end up.

Difficulty filing taxes

When it comes time to do taxes, you will need to file in each state you worked in the past year. This can be confusing and take a lot of time to get it right. You can hire a professional to help, but it will not be free.

Potential contract cancellations

Sometimes a facility may realize they don’t actually need the position you were hired for filled. When that happens, your contract gets canceled. It happens rarely, but it is still something to take note of.

First assignment travel guide

Your first assignment can be nerve wracking, but also exciting. If you’re an organized and flexible individual, you’ll have no problem adapting. Your first healthcare traveling assignment might also benefit from choosing a place that you’ve always wanted to visit so you’ll already have plans for your days off.

RTG Medical is one of the best travel healthcare companies, and we wanted to give you some tips and tricks to surviving your first travel assignment. From finding the right housing to packing and arriving on your first day to making friends, we’re here to support you through it all.

Tips for a first-time traveler

Take care of everything back at home, including pets

Do you need to forward your mail while you’re out of town? Do you have packages getting delivered you need to place on hold? Consider these things when going on assignment for 13 weeks. If you have a pet, you should also consider if you’re going to have a family member or friend take care of them while you’re gone, house them at long-term daycare or travel with your pet. Either way, make sure they don’t have an important vet visit coming up, and that they have all the necessary immunizations.

Find housing

The next step is to find somewhere to live in your new place. You likely have the option to find your own or to rely on what your travel healthcare companies recommend. Do you want to live in a suburb in close proximity to your job or do you want to be a distance away in the city?

Pack smart

Since you’re going to be gone for 13 weeks, think about what you need and don’t need. Are you flying or driving, and what room does each permit? Some things you can buy when you get there. Once you do a few assignments, you’ll be a pro at knowing what you need and don’t. Be sure to make note of anything you forgot or wish you had on your first assignment.

Take a test drive

One way to take the stress away from starting your first day on assignment is to do a practice run. Wake up, get ready, drive to your job’s location and pay attention to how long it takes. Make sure you know where to park and then determine if you need more or less time.

Arrive early on your first day

To avoid feeling rushed, arrive early on your first day. That way, you have plenty of time to orient yourself around the facility and find where you’re supposed to be. Be prepared for some sort of orientation. Being on time is also a great way to make a good first impression.

Be ready to show your talent

You got this job for a reason; the facility wanted your unique skills and talents. Make yourself invaluable in your new workplace by jumping in when needed, going above and beyond your job description and learning all you can.

Be positive

Even though it can be tough at times, it’s important to stay positive and have a good attitude. As a result of your hard work attitude, your coworkers will appreciate you. Don’t be afraid to step back and take a deep breath. It will all be okay.

Stay connected to recruiter

Staying connected to your recruiter will help them find you the perfect contracts time after time. Let them know what’s going well and what could be better for you. Continual communication helps build a good relationship, and the better your recruiter knows you, the better they can assist.

Make friends with your new team & explore where you are

Your first assignment is likely to lead to some great friendships. If you need any assistance in adjusting to the new town, they might be able to show you around or give you some local recommendations. Maybe you’ll even meet another traveling healthcare professional.

Begin your adventure with travel healthcare companies

Your first assignment may be a tough one, but once you complete it you’ll be on your way to becoming a great traveling healthcare professional. Think about your love for traveling and why you love your job if you’re ever struggling. RTG Medical wants to be your traveling partner, so if you’re ready to begin your traveling career, contact us today!

Tips for travel assignments with your family

Traveling solo has its perks, but if you want to bring your family or significant other along with you, there are some things you should consider. If you’re taking a trip with additional people, you’ll need to add some things to your checklist for what needs to be done ahead of time.

There are several ways to make traveling with your family work while on assignment. You will have days off to explore the new place you’re visiting, and you can maximize those days off with your family. You just need to make sure you choose the right time to make this move. Below are some tips and tricks from the top healthcare travel companies for when it comes to traveling with your family.

Choose the right time

Every family is unique. There may just be you and your significant other, or you may have children or pets. It will be important for all of you to select the right time to take them along with you. If your significant other has a work-from-home job, you’ll have lots of flexibility and it can make planning a bit easier. If your children are in school, you might want to consider bringing them along during the summer vacation. The age of your children also matters as it’s different traveling with toddlers versus teenagers

What you also have to take into consideration is if your contract is 13 weeks or longer. Some jobs will let you do an extension, keeping you in the same place longer. Communicating with your recruiter will help you find the perfect fit. No matter what your family looks like, traveling with them while on assignment is very possible.

Find housing

Choosing a housing option that meets your family’s needs is important. Are you traveling with your pets? You’ll need a pet-friendly home. Will you need extra bedrooms for the kids or an office for your work-from-home partner? Think about what other amenities you’ll need. You want this home away from home to be comfortable and feel like home.

You will also want to make sure the housing is in a safe neighborhood and that it has good security features. It might be a tough adjustment at first, moving from your current home to a temporary home, but sticking together and working as a team will help you be successful.

Enjoy the benefits

You can talk with your recruiter to make sure you’re using all the benefits you have available to you. Traveling with your family can be more expensive than traveling solo and you want to save money wherever you can. Along with job-related benefits, there are also several perks to traveling with your family while on assignment. 

When you’re traveling with your family, you’ll be able to have them with you on your days off when you’re normally exploring the new place yourself. Look into local events happening while you’re there or maybe you can visit one of the best national parks in the area. There are tons of family-friendly activities like theme parks, sporting events and new restaurants for you to try. Have each family member pick something they want to do on the days you’re off.

How to secure your dream traveling healthcare job

If you’re thinking about becoming a healthcare traveler, or if you already are, there are several ways you can secure your dream job. If you’re adventurous, outgoing, and like exploring new places and meeting new people, healthcare traveler jobs are sure to be a great fit for you. Before you can get on the road or hop on the next plane, there are a few things you’ll need to get in order first.

Organize your resume

It can be a pain to tweak your resume to each job you’re applying for, but it’s really what you need to do. Start by making sure everything is up to date. Then, tailor your talents and skills to each specific job you’re applying for. The work you put into this will pay off in the long run.

Don’t procrastinate paperwork

Paperwork definitely isn’t the best part about healthcare traveler jobs, but getting an early start can help streamline and speed up the process of starting your new assignment.. You’ll need to make sure your certifications and licenses are up to date. The job may also require other documents such as references, immunization records, and skills checklists. Getting this part done and out of the way gives you more time to plan the fun things.

Nail the interview

Once you’ve gotten to this point, you just need to be yourself and shine through the interview. It’s likely your interview will be over the phone, as the position you applied for requires you to travel to a different state. Be prepared to convey why you’re a great fit for the position during the interview. 

Don’t be afraid to say yes

Being open is key; be open to new places, facilities, and opportunities. You may be presented with the opportunity to travel somewhere that wasn’t at the top of your list, but saying yes anyways can elevate your chances of getting hired. Being adaptable will only show that you are willing to be flexible, gain experience in different areas, as well as give you the opportunity to grow your career even more. .

Build a strong relationship with your recruiter

Your recruiter is available  to help you find the perfect fit. Communicate to them the factors that are most important to you, whether it be location, salary, or facility. Your recruiter will be able to find and recommend some great jobs to you, and having a strong relationship in which they know a lot about you, will only help them find a perfect match for you.
