What the US News Best Hospitals List Means for Travel Nurses


Johns Hopkins


10 American Mobile hospital partners topped U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals list, providing AMH travel nurses with exceptional career opportunities  

When U.S. News & World Report released their list of the Best Hospitals for 2015-2016, the names came as no surprise because they are all well-known leaders within their specialties. What may come as a surprise, however, is the fact that 10 hospitals that made the prestigious Honor Roll are American Mobile Healthcare partner facilities, giving AMH travel nurses an unprecedented level of access to positions in the best hospitals in the country.   

Working at top facilities gives nurses the opportunity to gain solid experience and learn from the best doctors and nurses in the industry. Just having those facilities on their resumes can immediately drive them to the top of the pile when searching for future jobs. 

Choosing the right facilities early on in your travel nursing career is important. Here are 5 key benefits of working at top hospitals:   

1. Prestige

2. Resume-building

3. Working in exceptional facilities

4. Exposure to new procedures and the latest clinical trials

5. Working with top professionals in their industry

Even more important, all of the hospitals on the U.S. News Honor Roll list have Magnet status, which for nurses means that they have been recognized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for their exceptional standards of patient care. UCSD Medical Center calls Magnet status the “gold standard” for nursing excellence and says that only 6 percent of hospitals achieve Magnet designation. 

Nurses considering embarking on a career in travel nursing should weigh their options carefully. Lots of recruitment companies promise positions in top facilities, but only a select few actually deliver on that promise.
