What is a travel nurse?
A travel nurse is someone who is hired to work in a specific location for just a limited amount of time, usually 13 weeks in one area, and then move around the country depending on where they are needed. This is because the demand for nurses is so high and there are often shortages in certain areas, and a traveling nurse will be hired to come in and work in a specific position for a short amount of time.
What are the benefits of being a traveling nurse?
Traveling nurses are usually able to choose between several different jobs in a variety of areas that can last for different lengths of time. This allows them the freedom to choose where and when they work and live. If you are one of those people who dreads the cold and bitter winter months, being a traveling nurse can give you opportunities to fly south for the winter and work in the warmer climates for as long as you would like.
Being a traveling nurse also allows you the ability to "vacation" where you work and explore new places and test them out to see if it would be somewhere you would eventually want to live permanently.
