One of the best pieces of advice an experienced Traveler can give first-timers is to embark on the assignment with a friend. Driving to a new city with company in the passenger seat not only calms first day jitters, but makes things more fun overall—which is why Kayleigh, an ER nurse, worked with her recruiter at American Traveler to place she and two friends exactly where they wanted to be for the Fall season: in New York City travel nurse jobs! These three pals were ecstatic to check off the following items on their New York bucket list: go leaf peeping in Central Park, watch the Macy’s Parade roll by, and stick around long enough to see the holiday lights go up in Times Square. Kayleigh, an ER RN describes her New York City travel nurse experience -watch video here.   Kayleigh’s good luck in landing a high paying ER job with two friends—already members of the American Traveler team—was no small coincidence: it was carefully engineered and made possible by an experienced recruiter; Kayleigh’s friends had enjoyed previous assignments under their recruiter’s guidance and persuaded her to give it a try too.

Ashly P., an OR Nurse, Sits Down with American Traveler to Talk About Where She Might Be Headed Next… Ashly P., RN (CNOR) knew one thing growing up: she wanted to travel! At first, the goal seemed far away. Ashly wasn’t earning much in her first nursing job, but all that changed when she aligned talents with American Traveler. Since then, the Arkansas native has covered a lot of ground, managing to pay off her student loan debt along the way. travel nursing in Califonia - Ashly RN Travel Nurse“I've worked with one other travel agency and get calls from some others,” Ashly admitted when she sat down with AT to talk, “but I like American Traveler because they've always offered the most money and I trust my recruiter, Karen Stegeman implicitly.” It’s obvious that Ashly, a talented OR nurse, feels like she’s in capable hands—otherwise she wouldn’t go as seamlessly as she does, from one high paying travel nursing job to the next.

An Exclusive Travel Nurse Interview It was our pleasure this summer to catch up with Rhonda Ward, R.N., who is enjoying a travel nurse job in Juneau, Alaska right now. A registered nurse for over 20 years and currently working in Endoscopy, Rhonda opened up about the travel nurse lifestyle, and why it’s so special. AT: Is this trip to Alaska your first travel nurse assignment? RW: No, this Alaska travel nurse job is my second, but my first with American Traveler. I’m really liking it so far and would love to extend, maybe work in a Hawaii nursing job next.

travel nurse Valentines Penny Krause, R.N. has fallen in love twice; first with her husband, and now with her travel nursing job! Her current assignment is in the southeastern part of the Wisconsin and close enough to Chicago that she can’t resist traveling there every chance she gets. Thanks to the flexibility of travel nursing jobs, Penny is in the Windy City quite a bit, and kind enough to share stories with us, of how she’s making the most of her travel nursing career, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Year Round Travel Nursing Fun! Penny and her husband spent New Year’s Eve on Chicago’s Navy Pier, watching a fantastic fireworks display. The pier is a place, says Penny, that is absolutely beautiful at Christmastime, especially with its indoor skating rink—and Chicago—is known for their deep dish pizzas, ethnic eateries, galleries and nightlife. And, Penny tells us, they are also looking forward to this summer when they can attend a Cubs game in the famous Wrigley Field. For Penny, it’s just a 20 minute drive or short trip on the Metro from her Wisconsin travel nursing job to reach Chicago, and once she’s there, a mere $18 [+]
