Looking for an agency nurse job in 2021? “New Year, New Job” is a rather hackneyed cliche, but the sentiment does make sense. The turn of a new year creates the impression of “restarting”, an opportunity to take stock of your situation, review your job priorities and take a closer look at your career. As we move into 2021, the country is still in a period of great uncertainty, as we continue to face the pressures associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve compiled a list of some New Year’s Resolutions that will optimise your search for your next agency nurse job.


Keep Up to Date 

To find a new agency nurse job, you need to be at the top of your job-hunting game in the healthcare or nursing industry. The best place to start is to always keep your professional profile up to date. Whether that’s simply your CV, or storing information from nurse assignments or other healthcare positions you’ve undertaken. This is also useful for revalidation, as you’ll have a record of the work you’ve completed.

Learn New Skills

In addition to keeping your CV updated, you’ll need to make sure your skills are up to date by completing professional development opportunities. By supplementing your knowledge with both mandatory and optional training, you’ll not only stand out from the crowd but you’ll build skills that will help you in your next agency nurse job.



While the world of face-to-face networking might have been put on hold as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are many other means of networking that can benefit your agency nurse job search. Social media such as LinkedIn and Facebook are a good means of connecting with potential employers, accessing more learning opportunities and hearing about nursing jobs.
