What is a Travel Nurse?
A travel nurse is a nurse who is hired to work in a specific location for a limited amount of time. Travel nurses typically work 13 week periods in one area, and move around the country depending on where they are needed. Because the demand for nurses is so high, there are often shortages in certain areas, and a traveling nursing will be hired to come in and work in a specific position for a short amount of time.
Travel nursing assignments typically range from 8 to 26 weeks in length and include a variety of different specialties. Travel Nurses are able to choose between several jobs in a variety of areas lasting for different lengths of time. This allows traveling nurses the freedom to choose where and when they work. The freedom to choose where and when you work is a great benefit that allows travel nurses the ability to take time off when they want and not be stuck at the same job day after day.
The major benefit of travel nursing is that you get to choose where you live and work. If you are tired of your current location or want to get away from cold weather for the winter, you have the ability to find a job in a different location and move for a short period of time. You are able to make money from wherever you like and are able to change locations and assignments regularly if you choose. With a travel nursing job, you also have the ability to vacation where you work and explore new cities and parts of the country or world on your time off. You have the opportunity to see new places and test them out for a while to see if you would want to eventually live there permanently.
Travel nurses earn competitive wages and are able to provide a very comfortable life for themselves. Typically, the cost of travel and living arrangements are included in the job so you don’t need to worry about paying high prices for rent. These perks are a great way to save money and focus on working and enjoying the city you are working in. If you have an adventurous spirit and enjoy moving around and exploring new locations, you may be the perfect fit for a travel nursing position.
