Tis the season… flu season, that is. As cold and flu season bears down upon us, it’s important that your healthcare facility is prepared. That includes your nursing staff, support staff, and patients. But how do you do it?

Here are five tips to get your healthcare facility ready for flu season this year:

#1: Promote Hygiene and Wellness

Encourage healthy practices among your staff, like exercising, getting enough sleep, and eating healthy. While it’s no guarantee against the flu, it certainly helps. Also make a point to share tips with your staff on preventing influenza spread, like disinfecting keyboards, washing hands frequently, and getting the flu vaccine.

#2: Keep Common Areas Disinfected

This flu season, keep a facility-wide plan in place to keep common areas disinfected. Breakrooms, lobbies, and restrooms are breeding grounds for germ-spreading, so evaluate your cleaning strategies to make sure you’re keeping up with routine cleaning and disinfection.

#3: Stock OTC Cold and Flu Medicines

It’s a good idea to bolster your stock of over-the-counter cold and flu medications as the season gets into full swing. Not only is this helpful for your staff if they feel like they’re coming down with something, it can boost morale and lower the chance of employees sharing medication with one another. Cold, cough, and headache relief medicine, cough drops, and basic painkillers are all good options.

#4: Monitor Flu Alerts

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) publishes an influenza surveillance report weekly, which monitors the geographical spread of the flu by state. This can be extremely helpful for determining whether your facility might be in the path of a swell of flu cases.

#5: Boost Your Staff

If you get a sudden rush of patients because of the flu or another disease, it can leave your staff caught off guard and struggling to catch up. You need to have a plan in place to boost your staff if the need arises. That’s where an experienced nursing staffing agency like Medical Talent comes in. We can help augment your existing staff with skilled nurses and medical professionals, alleviating the burden on your core team and helping you to get through flu season successfully.

Travel nursing has always been a fairly popular niche within the nursing field. And it’s no wonder why – travel nurses get to see all corners of the country, explore new cities on a regular basis, and work with a wide variety of teams to grow their skills. Travel nursing continued to be popular through the pandemic, as added nursing help was needed in hotspots around the United States.

Although we’re through the worst of the pandemic, it’s still a great time to be a travel nurse. Here’s why:

Job Security

You’ve probably heard that there’s a serious talent shortage going on right now in a variety of industries. Healthcare is no exception. The nursing shortage is affecting facilities far and wide, which means your talents as a travel nurse are in high demand. That gives you job security – become a travel nurse, and you can have your pick of placements where you want to work. Plus, you’ll be exposed to a variety of areas within nursing, helping you to explore different specialties and narrow down where you might want to take your career in the future.


Of course, the flexibility of travel nursing is still a great reason to explore this exciting side of nursing. You get to decide when and where you want to work. You can take as long of a break as you’d like in between assignments, or you can go from one assignment to the next. This kind of flexibility is very helpful if you want to plan your schedule around holidays, vacations, family events, etc.


While the exorbitant salaries and huge sign-on bonuses of peak pandemic months are behind us, you’ll still be very well compensated as a travel nurse. According to nursejournal.org, the average travel nurse salary is between $3,000 and $7,000 a week in some areas. That can be significantly higher than staff nurse salaries at hospitals, specialty facilities, and nursing or long-term care homes.

In today’s digital job market, it can seem like cover letters are unnecessary, or overkill. Why send a cover letter when you’ve already included your resume, which covers everything a hiring manager needs to know? If you have the skills and experience necessary to make a difference in healthcare, why bother with a cover letter at all?

The truth is that cover letters are by no means a thing of the past. They do serve a purpose – an important one. Here’s why you need to include a cover letter in your next healthcare job application:

Cover letters showcase your soft skills.

Your resume covers your hard skills – the technical skills you have that lets you improve lives every day. But any healthcare professional worth their salt knows that these skills are only half the battle. You need to have the right personality, the right character, to really make a difference in a healthcare setting. Not anyone can do this job, and your cover letter is the place to explain why you can.

Ensure that your cover letter showcases your soft skills as well as your technical ability. Explain how your natural empathy improves your bedside manner, how your multitasking skills help you facilitate better patient outcomes for your team, how your communication skills ensure mistakes aren’t made. This is what really sets you apart from the competition.

Cover levers convey your personality.

The way you write and structure your cover letter also helps to convey your personality as a nurse. Because healthcare organizations are looking for healthcare professionals who fit their culture, you want to come across as a competent, likeable, personable professional – not a robot. Let your natural style come through in your cover letter so the hiring manager can get a sense of who you are, not just what you can do.

Cover letters let you sell yourself.

Your resume isn’t a document that sells you to the employer. It simply lists your qualifications to get you in the door. Your cover letter is where you can go beyond that – it lets you explain why you’re a great fit for the role, what you can bring to the organization, and how you hope to grow and advance in your career moving forward.

Travel nursing is a dynamic, exciting, and adventurous career choice. But it’s not all glamorous, especially as we approach the holiday season. If you’re considering a career as a travel nurse or if you’re heading into your first holiday season on the road, there are some challenges to be aware of.

Time Away from Family

Perhaps the biggest difficulty for many travel nurses who are working during the holidays is spending this time of year away from family. It’s tough to be away from the comfort of home during the holidays, especially if you’re working in an entirely different state or the whole way across the country. And since patients need care year-round – even on the major holidays – it’s possible that you won’t have off work on these important dates. You’ll need to make peace with the fact that your job comes with sacrifices; but remember that you’re doing something good for other people and spending your holidays with the patients who need you.

Travel Logistics

Logistics can be a hassle any time of year, but it tends to get even worse around the holidays as more and more people are traveling. Dealing with time zone changes, unfamiliar weather, adjusting to new places, arranging flights, and more can really take a toll – especially if you’re taking on a new assignment for the first time.

Visit nursing.org’s travel nursing page for a list of online resources on everything from packing tips and tax information to networking hints and certification resources.


No matter the time of year, licensing can be a challenge for travel nurses. Travel nurses are required to have an active license for every state in which they work, and that can take a lot of planning. Of course, many states are covered under the Compact license agreement, allowing nurses to get just one license. Note that additional certifications might be needed if you’re hired for a specialty position like a role in labor/delivery or the emergency room.

To keep it all straight, trust an experienced travel nurse staffing agency like Medical Talent to help you on your journey.

A shortage of nurses existed before COVID-19, but the pandemic certainly highlighted the problem – and made it worse. Demand for nurses and other healthcare professionals is expected to grow significantly over the next decade, which increases competition among healthcare organizations like yours. That’s where partnering with a healthcare staffing agency like Medical Talent can help.

Let’s examine just three of the major benefits of working with a healthcare staffing agency:

Fill Talent Gaps and Prevent Staff Shortages

Skills gaps and staff shortages aren’t just an inconvenience in the world of healthcare; it can lead to inadequate patient care. Whether it’s unplanned absences, maternity leave, or a pandemic stretching the pool of qualified talent thin, you need to be able to adapt – fast. Connecting with a healthcare staffing agency means you have the talent you need at your fingertips, when you need it. If you need to ramp up staffing for a busy period – like flu season, for example – you can do so quickly and efficiently. When you don’t need the extra help, you can scale back to save money and resources.

Save Time on Candidate Sourcing

How much time does your internal HR team spend setting up job listings, screening through applications and resumes, setting up interviews, narrowing down the list… it all takes up a lot of time and resources. When you rely on a healthcare staffing agency, the entire recruiting process is taken care of for you. That means you free up your core team to focus on operational objectives and important business tasks. Plus, you get the healthcare talent you need faster.

Outsource Payrolling and Credentialing

If you rely on a healthcare staffing agency for temporary nursing help, per diem, travel nurses, or other arrangements that aren’t permanent hires, the agency will help with any necessary vetting and credentialing. Plus, those nurses remain on the agency’s payroll, not yours. That means you offload the burden of payroll – including paycheck processing, distribution, tax withholdings, and much more – and let the professionals handle it.

Before you embark on your job hunt, it’s a good idea to clean up your social media presence. Why? Because, like it or not, potential employers may look at your online presence – and make a judgment based on what they find. You don’t want to ruin your chances of landing a great job just because of something you’ve put on social media.

Here are some quick steps to take to clean up your social media before job hunting:

Deactivate old or duplicate accounts.

If you have any old or duplicate accounts out there, it’s wise to go ahead and delete them entirely if you’re not using them. There’s no sense in having more accounts out there – there could be something on those accounts that you’d rather not have an employer see. Plus, it could confuse the hiring manager who is looking over your social media if they find multiple accounts for the same person. It’s best to have only the active accounts that you use and make sure they’re representing you how you want to be seen.

Delete any posts that could detract from your reputation.

Make sure anything inappropriate or controversial is deleted from your social media platforms entirely. It’s always best to play it safe. Don’t forget to check out any posts or photos you’ve been tagged in, too. An easy way to make sure you’re in the clear is to Google your own name and see what comes up. If a result ties back to something inappropriate on your social channels, take the necessary steps to get it taken down.

Clean up your profile names and handles.

Your profile names, extensions, and handles are an extension of you as a professional. It’s a good idea to make sure they all match and that they use your real name. If possible, make your profile names and handles appear the same way your name appears on your resume. It’s an easy way to look professional and ensure a hiring manager who is looking at your profiles that they’ve found the right person.

Follow relevant groups and organizations.

It’s possible that a hiring manager will also take a look at the organizations, people, and groups you follow on social media. Make sure that who and what you follow reflects your professional goals and values. Following organizations relevant to your field and the jobs you’re applying to is a great way to stand out from the crowd and put yourself at the top of the candidate pile.

Have you ever considered partnering with a staffing firm to source and hire top talent? There are many benefits to doing so. You’ll find qualified candidates quickly and reduce your time to hire and the costs associated with posting job openings, reviewing resumes, and interviewing. Plus, you’ll be able to free up your core staff to focus on broader objectives and facility goals rather than getting bogged down in the details of the hiring process. And it turns out that partnering with a staffing firm is mutually beneficial – it’s as good for the firm as it is for you.

A staffing firm can meet a variety of needs.

Do you need permanent or full-time team members to add to your roster? How about temporary or contract workers? Maybe you’re not ready to commit to a full-time relationship without testing out the employee on the job first. In any of these situations, a staffing partner can help. By offering temporary, temp-to-hire, and direct hire options – just to name a few – you’re gaining access to a variety of solutions to meet your hiring and staffing needs. And the staffing firm benefits from your business and gets to engage all its business lines as necessary.

A staffing firm is your long-term partner.

Don’t think of a staffing firm as a one-time solution. The aim is to be your long-term partner, available for you whenever the need for a staffing solution arises. Need one temporary employee in a few days to cover an unplanned absence? A larger pool of contractors to assist during busy periods? A full-time member of leadership to help guide your facility in a new direction? Staffing firms can help with all of the above. By remaining your trusted source for staffing, the firm keeps up business while your facility benefits from having the necessary staffing solutions available at a moment’s notice.

Staffing firms can help with more than just staffing.

Staffing might be in the name, but staffing firms also help with a lot more than just hiring. From assistance with worker classification and compliance to safety training, background checks, drug screenings, pre-employment interviews, and much more, you can rely on your staffing partner for a variety of needs beyond simply finding great people for your facility.
