More and more nurses are exploring an agency nurse job. With factors such as an ageing population, and demand for nurses out-weighting supply, the agency nursing market continues to grow. We’ve outlined some of our top reasons to consider an agency nurse job with Mayday Healthcare.
Agency Nurse Pay Rates
A key reason many nurses first start exploring the idea of an agency nurse job is the pay rates. It’s no secret that agency nurse jobs offer high pay rates, and this motivates many people to give it a try.
Supplement Your Income
As well as being a rewarding career in its own right, an agency nurse job can be a great option to increase your monthly earnings - on top of a permanent job. You can choose additional hours when and where you want.
An agency nurse job can really help to develop your skill set - both clinically and soft skills. Working in different healthcare organisations, you’ll get exposure to a wide range of medical professionals (including other agency nurses), as well as their working style. This means you’ll not only keep up to date with the latest nursing practice, but you’ll also gain a better understanding of the working environment - making you more able to adapt to different situations.
Did you know in an agency nurse job, you can select your own working hours? If you prefer to work a certain shift pattern, or have other commitments such as childcare, you can create a work schedule to suit you.
Variety of Opportunities
You can find shifts and agency nurse assignments for all manner of specialisms - from A&E and ITU nursing, to nursing in the community. There is an agency nurse job to suit everyone. It’s said that in nursing, no two days are the same, and that’s certainly the case for an agency nurse job.
A Change of Scenery
Some nurses undertake an agency nurse job for another reason - to explore a range of different environments and workplaces. Some people prefer a routine, working in the same place every day - but for many nurses an agency nurse job means a regular change of scenery.
Revalidation, Training and Support
At Mayday Healthcare we offer all our agency nurses access to revalidation guidance, regular CPD and training opportunities and 24/7 support.
