What is a Travel Nurse?
Earn a Living and Travel at the Same Time
Travel nurses provide relief for hospitals and facilities all over the country that are struggling with staffing shortages. As a travel nurse, you get to pick where you work and how often you work. This is extremely appealing to nurses that like to live a flexible lifestyle and enjoy traveling.
A career in travel nursing can be both a full- and part-time travel nurse job. Whether you are looking to travel around the country for a career, or simply looking for supplemental income during your off days, there is a travel nurse job for everyone.
