Fusion Medical Staffing Clinical Team Has Your Back. Here’s How!
They relay industry changes to medical travelers
Imagine you’re on a medical travel assignment and suddenly, there are changes made to a state rule or regulation that directly impacts you. What do you do? If you’re a Fusion Medical Staffing traveler, you simply call your friends on the clinical team.
One important role of our clinical team is to pass vital information to travel nurses and allied health travelers. By using resources like medical newsletters, state licensing boards, and information from the American Nurses Association as well as working closely with internal departments like the Fusion Medical Staffing compliance and legal teams, the clinical team stays on top of industry updates, and keeps you in the loop, as well.
“We stay updated on changes within the industry and ensure that any new requirements are being implemented and met so our travelers can be assured they’re practicing according to applicable laws and regulations,” said Manager of Clinical Services Casey Morrison, RN, BSN.
No matter how big or small the update, the clinical team ensures you have all the information you need to succeed in your travel nursing or allied health travel job.
They offer an enhanced level of understanding
It can be tough to be a medical traveler. The Fusion Medical Staffing clinical team gets that, because every member of the team has been in your shoes. As nurses themselves (including some former travel nurses), the clinical team offers an enhanced level of understanding for healthcare professionals like you.
“We serve as a sounding board and advocate for our travelers, and since we do have clinical knowledge, we can better understand the situations our travelers face and help guide them,” said Casey. “Because of our prior clinical experience in different modalities, we can provide a listening ear and guidance on how to handle [different] situations.”
You face a unique set of challenges that can be difficult to navigate. But with the clinical team on your side, you don’t have to face them alone. Whether your contract unexpectedly gets canceled or you’re struggling to make friends while on assignment, the Fusion Medical Staffing clinical team is here for you and may be able to relate to what you’re going through.
“Having someone that can advocate for you, empathize with your situation, and has had similar experiences to yours is important,” Casey said.
They ensure you’re matched with a travel job where you’ll succeed
Have you ever gotten to an assignment and quickly realized it’s not exactly what you thought you signed up for? We hate it when that happens.
As a Fusion Medical Staffing traveler, your personal recruiter works hand-in-hand with the clinical team to ensure you’re being placed in a position where you’ll thrive. With the help of the Fusion Medical Staffing clinical team, you can easily find opportunities that fit your needs.
“We are here to look at resumes for recruiters, to make sure that we’re putting people into positions where they’re going to be successful,” said Clinical Liaison Morgan Anderson, RN, BSN. “It’s never our intent to land you somewhere you’re not going to be successful. It doesn’t do any good for anybody.”
From reviewing resumes and skills checklists to assisting with state licensing and workplace conflicts, the clinical team offers essential resources and support that make it easier for you to do what you do best: make a positive impact in the lives of others.
