What makes a career in travel nursing different from standard nursing? To answer this question, look no further than the name itself – travel. As a travel nurse, where you work is only limited to your willingness and desire to travel. You can ditch cold winters to work on the sunny shores of California, or take an assignment in Montana to see the gorgeous scenery. The choice is yours.

When you make the switch to travel nursing, you leave behind the monotonous routine of working in the same place every day. Pick your schedule, see the country, and gain valuable experience that no permanent job can provide. This is what it means to be a travel nurse.

Experience New Practice Settings

Along with being in a new city or town, travel nursing also presents the opportunity to work in a new environment. Outside of typical practice settings such as hospitals and clinics, travel nurses are needed in a variety of settings such as IHS facilities, correctional centers, and more. This is a great chance for you to add some variety to your resume as well as a way for you to learn new skills you might not have been exposed to elsewhere. The United States is a massive country, so it is safe to say that how a nurse practices in Maine is likely not the same in Arizona.

There are facilities in need of travel nurse coverage all over the country. This means there is a good chance that there will be an opportunity for you wherever you would like to travel. All you need to do is get in contact with a recruiter and tell them where you want to go.
