How is Cath Lab Travel Nursing Different Than My Current Job?
For the most part, it's not. The beauty of cath lab travel nursing lies in your ability to gain access to the career choices that will make you the happiest.
For example, Tammy, a cath lab nurse we've worked with, wanted to work in a rural area that was close to her parents. She had the experience to do so, so Travelnursing.com made all of the arrangements with our trusted partners. Tammy was not only able to move close to her family, she is now working in a new facility and learning a new EMR system that will make her resume even stronger.
Other cath lab travel nurses want to explore the country, whether it be big cities or suburbs in contracts of 13 weeks or longer. Many positions even allow you to extend your stay if you like an area, of if you prefer, you can move on to another part of the country. This great career option really does give you the career autonomy you need to make a great living while enjoying the things that are important to you.
