Travel Nursing

Explore new hospitals and discover your sense of adventure! Travel nurses work in a specific location for a specific, limited amount of time (typically 13 weeks) and are guaranteed a set schedule for the course of the contract. Essentially, you become a part of the hospital’s staff. Then, once your contract is complete, you're free to move around to different facilities dependent on needs.

So what are some more advantages of being a travel nurse?


  • Choose which assignments meet your wants and needs andexactly where you go
  • Relish in the stability of a guaranteed number of shifts during a fixed period of time at the same hospital
  • Suit up for a new adventure every few months
  • Take advantage of job opportunities in a high demand locations and lower your cost of living
  • Explore new cities and find the ideal place to settle down
  • Pick up per diem nursing assignments on your off days at other hospitals
  • Enjoy industry high compensation issued weekly

Are there any disadvantages of travel nursing?


Travel nursing does not offer nearly the same flexibility as per diem nursing. You will experience more guaranteed stability as a travel nurse, but with that comes a more set schedule and an increased likelihood that you will work some weekends and holidays, even if you want those days off.
However, we can typically request specific days off prior to the start of travel nurse assignment, allowing you to plan accordingly.

Travel nursing is best for nurses who want an adventure every few months, not every day.
