Requirements can vary from facility to facility, assignment to assignment and state to state. Typically, individual state (or compact) licensing and/or certifications are needed. We are proud to be part of a select group of Joint Commission certified travel agencies, so our Travel Healthcare Professionals are required to have a minimum of one year of experience. (Certain specialties may require more experience for consideration.)

At MSSI you don’t need to be an expert negotiator, we will always disclose the pre-set pay rate for assignments prior to having travelers apply (all travelers with the same specialty and location are paid the same). We also advertise our positions with pay details and provide a listing of our assignments with pay packages on our website. Keep in mind, as with most jobs, how much a travel healthcare professional makes can vary greatly depending on specialty, location and agency.

When you initially apply with MSSI you are assigned a recruiter who is there to support you. Your recruiter will do their best to help secure a new assignment or to extend your current assignment far in advance of your assignment ending.

The way that travelers get paid is by the hospital paying your agency, who then in turn pays you. If the hospital decides that orientation is not billable, your agency may not be able to pay you your full amount (or any) for orientation. Ask your recruiter to go over orientation details before taking an assignment and decide whether or not it’s for you.
Can I take time off during an assignment?klapo2020-09-23T18:33:59+00:00
If you know you’re going to need time off (whether you know or don’t know the specific dates yet) it is imperative you communicate this with your recruiter and also with the person interviewing you. It’s not always a given that your request will be approved, but it makes it easier for everyone if you are able to give a heads up from the start.
What happens if I have an emergency during my assignment?klapo2020-09-23T18:34:38+00:00
MSSI has several unique factors that allow us to offer the highest wages in the industry. Not only are all of our facility partnerships exclusive, but MSSI also runs lower margins than our competitors, allowing us to be able to structure our pay packages so that we can offer the highest wages up front. You won’t have to worry that you’re leaving dollars behind when you work with us.
