Sean, ER Traveling Registered Nurse with American Traveler: Benefits of being a traveling nurse are awesome. I come down here. You can take a stipend. I don't. I let them provide my housing. I get in my jeep, I drive down here, and I just show up at apartment, a condo, that is completely paid for, with no worries. I also am given health benefits, as well. It's little things that I don't have to worry about, at all.
