What is a Travel Nurse?
If you’ve ever wondered how you could make the most of your nursing experience while also seeing the country then travel nursing is for you. When a hospital or healthcare facility needs temporary nursing staff because of high-volume periods, scheduled vacations, or staff training, they turn to travel nurses to guarantee that patient care is unaffected.
Travel nurses fill staffing gaps for periods of a few weeks to a year, interacting with patients in the same way as the facility’s permanent staff. Many nurses find their specialty experience in fields such as PACU, periOperative, oncology, cath lab, neonatal, dialysis, ER , L&D, and PCU telemetry make them ideal candidates for travel nursing jobs across the country, but anyone with a minimum of one-year of nursing experience can apply for these types of positions.
