An Agency Nurse´s Perspective on Why You Should Work with Clarity Locums

So, you're looking to make that move into agency nursing but there seems to be so many agencies on offer. Which one do you choose? Well, first of all let me tell you a little bit about my own personal experience as an agency nurse and why I can highly recommend it as a career move.

I qualified as a nurse in 2014 and worked full-time for a number of years before deciding to work as an agency nurse. When I returned from nursing abroad in the Middle East, I wished to pursue other studies but found it very difficult to get the time off that I needed. Agency nursing opened up so many doors for me as it allowed me to essentially work full-time but have the autonomy to pick my own hours. I loved the feeling it gave me of being my own boss and having the work-life balance that I craved. I also got to choose where I wanted to work which was even better!

Some of the other benefits of agency nursing include:

  • Time off to go to those special events you might not be able to attend if working in a permanent position.
  • You can get experience in new areas without having to fully commit to working there full-time.
  • It helps to keep your skills fresh by working in different areas.
  • You can make new nursing connections through working in different facilities.
  • You might just find that job you love and end up staying in.
  • Pay can be lucrative and you can get premium rates for bank holiday and night shifts
  • Work tends to be more patient-centred as you generally do not have to partake in the extra ward-based administrative tasks that permanent nurses have to do.
  • If you don't like working in one facility, you can always choose to go elsewhere.
