University of Colorado Hospital Traveler RN Program

  1. 0
    I am interested in UCH's traveler rn program. I have never traveled before, but this sounds almost too good to be true? Anyone have any experience here? I would love to get my foot in the door this way. I'm afraid to get canceled alot or something though, by taking a traveler position. I have plenty of experience to take this job though.

    I was hired as a UCH traveler last year. I did 2 13-week contracts with them, then was hired on as a permanent employee. Travelers don't necessarily get cancelled first, depends on the unit I imagine.

    Klone,

    About how long did it take them to get back to you for an interview after you submitted your application?

    Also what units did you work on?

    Thanks!

    Boy, it was a long time ago and I don't really remember. Okay, I just looked through some old emails - my interview was on April 20th, and I was hired a week later. I want to say I submitted my resume in early March. It was long enough that I had kind of forgotten that I had applied for the position.

    I work in L&D/Mother-baby

    They are the top pulmonary hospital. I would give my right arm to get in as a CNS there.

    klone: I have an interview for the travel RN position at UCH in about a week. Was there always the option to renew the contract? Also, I know they provide a monthly stipend but did they offer housing as an option? Thanks!

    Housing was not offered, only the housing stipend. I don't think a contract renewal is ALWAYS a given - I imagine it totally depends on the needs of the unit. The unit has the option to renew your contract for up to a year, and then they have to either hire you on permanently or let you go. Usually if they know you're a good fit and they have a need, they will offer you a permanent position after one or two contracts. I was informally offered a position before my first contract was up, but they were waiting for the approval for the position from the highers up, and I was officially given the permanent position midway through my second contract, and the contract was then just cancelled and I came on as a permanent employee (I had moved permanently to Denver and knew traveling was not in my blood and UCH was a good fit).

    Good luck with the interview next week!
