What Is Travel Nursing Like?

Travel nursing embraces flexibility, adventure, and higher pay while avoiding the drama of internal politics. As a traveler, you will be walking into a new unit that likely operates in a different way than you are used to—and with limited orientation.

Healthcare facilities want travel nurses who are open to new methods and procedures. No two facilities are the same, nor do they operate in the same way. Simply put, you need to be flexible.

Hospitals are typically beholden to some level of guaranteed hours for travel nurses. In order to meet these guarantees, floating to units in which you are qualified to work is often a requirement for travelers.

A draw for many to travel nursing is the opportunity to distance one’s self from hospital politics. Because your stay at any one facility is limited, you have the unique ability to remove yourself from the internal cliques of a hospital.

Simply put, travel nursing allows you to serve others and explore new regions while earning higher compensation.
