A: Travel nursing is a wonderful change of scene and a rewarding career path. After 37 years of staff nursing and management, I’m back to doing what I love, which is bedside nursing. I have a flexible schedule, plenty of time off and look forward to new challenges every shift.
A: Travel nursing gives nurses the opportunity to observe different approaches to healthcare, learn at world-famous hospitals, advance in the practice and train with new methods and equipment. On a personal level, there’s nothing like the freedom of traveling around the country, meeting new people and visiting with family and friends.
A: As long as I'm mobile and can maintain my sanity, I plan on travel nursing into my seventies. I have six children and eight grand children. As a travel nurse, I can visit with them any time I want or they can come see me on assignment and share in travel adventures.
A: Have a few years of nursing under your belt before traveling. This way, your organizational skills, nurse working knowledge and patient rapport are all in place before you're challenged with brief orientations in new settings, where you're expected to hit the floor running.
Speaker 1: I am a registered nurse, and I have been one for thirty-seven years. I'm a wife and mother, but I've been an RN longer than I've been a wife and mother. When our youngest child went off to college, we decided, "Let's take a road trip." I decided to become a travel nurse and took an assignment up at Duke University in North Carolina.
Speaker 2: That's great. What's your specialty as an RN?
Speaker 1: Mine is telemetry, cardiac, and I really enjoy that area to work in.
