ICU travel nurses bring hope to patients who need it most.
Intensive care ICU travel nurses provide critical care to people during their most vulnerable moments. In this role, you provide physical and emotional support, act as a patient advocate, and assist physicians in conducting patient-centered compassionate care practices.
Critical care nurses have learned the assessment and intervention skills that truly save people’s lives. Like an Olympic athlete, your timing, training, and precision help you stay two steps ahead in caring for patients. ICU nurses gracefully handle the most delicate situations and flexibly adapt to meet the challenges of the census.
Intensive care unit travel nurses specialize in treating critically ill patients. You could work in general ICU, post-op, burn units, or other specialized departments. Most ICU travel positions are in hospitals, but ICU RNs can choose from many different subspecialties including cardiac, surgical, pediatric, and beyond. Some rehabilitation facilities also use ICU nurses because of their advanced skills with ventilators and tracheostomy tubes. These travel nurses also specialize in educating and supporting patients in their healing process. Their abilities also make a difference in the lives of the patients’ families who are often amazed at the quality of care provided for their loved one.
