Your nursing career should be rewarding both financially and mentally. Nursing is considered by many to be not just a job, but a personal calling. Regardless of how it began, your nursing career will allow you a huge range of flexibility. Nursing careers span a huge range of specialties and environments, including hospitals, schools, doctor's offices, and more. Some even make the decision to take their nursing career on the road and become what is called a traveling nurse. Travel nurses leave their home and travel to a facility on a temporary basis. They provide much needed help at the hospital and then decide where they want to go next. Travel nursing is a great way to accelerate your nursing career and your salary, as travel nurses make as much as 30% more than their staff counterparts. While considering a career in nursing, set some goals in line with your values and take it one step at a time.
Both family and pets are welcome on travel nursing assignments. You will need to let your agency know ahead of time if you are bringing family members or pets with you, so they can help you plan appropriate housing and other accommodations in the area of your assignment. There's no better way to prevent homesickness than by bringing your home with you!
Travel nurses gain valuable experience by traveling around to different hospitals and learning new systems, practices, and even treating unique regional illnesses and disorders. They become valuable assets to any team they join and are often specialized in a wide variety of fields due to their diverse experience gained by traveling around the country.Get Started Today
