Over the course of a typical travel nursing assignment, this means you could earn a travel nurse salary of up to $25,000 or more, in just 13 short weeks! A lot of factors go in to determining your individual travel nursing salary, including your area of specialty, the location of the job, the facility requirements, and more.

As a travel nurse, you will be expected to arrive at your travel nursing assignment orientation ready to go. Assignment orientation varies by facility: at some hospitals you may have a week (or more!) of classroom training. At others, you may only have a few hours of floor orientation. Being flexible and positive are the keys to success when transitioning to a new hospital. Ask questions and make note of where important resources are, like the supply closet!
One of the things many nurses like about travel nursing is being able to avoid typical hospital politics. With travel nurses only at the facility for a limited number of weeks, the focus is more on doing the job well than on personal time. Travel nurses are able to sidestep much of the common conflict from working with the same people day after day. Travel nurses agree to set schedules and pay before they begin their assignments, a major plus for those who aren't interested in becoming mired in the daily drama.Get Started Today
