Travel Ambulatory Care Nurse Jobs

Ambulatory care nurses are registered nurses who specialize in treating patients in an outpatient or short stay setting. They’re part of a multidisciplinary healthcare team that provides primary care to a diverse population. The continuity of patient care that’s often provided in outpatient settings allows nurses to bond with their patients, which can make these positions very rewarding. The outpatient settings also frequently offer a better work/life balance with shorter business hours that often don’t require working nights and limited weekend hours required.

Ambulatory care nurses are highly sought specialists on Vivian with numerous ambulatory care nursing jobs available at exciting locations around the nation.

What does an ambulatory care nurse do?

Ambulatory care nurses often care for high volumes of patients in a short amount of time. Each patient encounter can be unpredictable and may require independent and collaborative activities. Depending on the type of environment  the nurse works in, they may care for patients with a range of injuries or illnesses and have an incredibly diverse set of tasks each day. One of their primary tasks will be identifying each patient’s needs to determine what type of care is required. Other general tasks an ambulatory care nurse may perform include:

  • Evaluating patients’ general health

  • Developing patient care plans

  • Recording patient histories

  • Taking vital signs

  • Assisting doctors during exams and procedures

  • Performing various procedures and diagnostic tests

  • Administering medications

  • Calling in refills to pharmacies

  • Coordinating healthcare services

  • Providing health-related education to patients and their families

  • Providing care across patient life spans

  • Inpatient duties may include documenting admissions and discharges, post-operative care of surgery patients, and collaboration with various members of the healthcare team

Where do ambulatory care nurses work?

Ambulatory care nurses usually care for non-emergency patients in a variety of settings where patients don’t stay overnight or are anticipated to have a short hospital stay (usually less than 36 hours). Some common places they may work include hospital-based outpatient clinics, non-acute ambulatory day surgery and diagnostic centers, short-stay inpatient units, stand-alone specialty care outpatient clinics, solo or group medical practices, and nurse-managed clinics. Other possible places of employment include university and community clinics, telehealth services, Veterans Administration clinics, and patients’ homes.

What skills make a good ambulatory care nurse?

Good ambulatory care nurses have intuitive, multifaceted clinical knowledge with strong assessment and organizational skills to expedite appropriate treatment. They possess keen critical thinking skills, can think on their feet, and are prepared for various types of health issues. Ambulatory care nurses have excellent collaboration skills and easily function as part of a multidisciplinary team. Their exceptional communication and interpersonal skills promote a pleasant bedside manner in a frequently fast-paced environment, which allows them to effectively interact with all types of patients.

How to become an Ambulatory Care Travel Nurse

Pursuing a career as an ambulatory care travel nurse starts with earning a nursing degree. Prospective nurses need at least an associate degree in nursing, but some facilities prefer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Graduates must take and pass the NCLEX-RN and complete all other state licensing requirements to become a registered nurse.

Although not required, board certification is a smart career move. The American Nurses Credentialing Center offers Ambulatory Care Nursing Certification (AMB-BC™) after practicing nursing full-time for two years and completing 2,000 hours of clinical practice and 30 hours of continued education in ambulatory care nursing.
