The average age of the nation's 2.9 million nurses is 47; many experienced nurses choose to refresh their careers with travel nurse jobs.

Travel nurse jobs with American Traveler range from temporary to permanent positions, and are located across the nation in both rural and urban settings. Nurses can also choose from over 3,500 medical facilities, from large world-class university teaching hospitals to smaller, more specialized clinics.

Kathy S. was one such nurse who transitioned from permanent nursing to a more flexible traveling nurse schedule with American Traveler.

“I have been trying to get the courage to become a travel nurse my whole life,” said Kathy. “Finally taking the leap to travel nursing has been a wonderful experience for me and my family.” Kathy, 55, has been working in a prestigious children's hospital in Washington, D.C. for several months and travels with her daughter. Although apprehensive at first about the career move, Shuler now has plans to be a travel nurse long-term with American Traveler and referred two of her friends to the program who are currently on assignments.

American Traveler is a travel nurse company that offers incomparable pay and benefits, including group dental and medical insurance, free housing in fully furnished apartments, licensure reimbursement, travel allowances and many other incentives. Their travel nurses can also travel with a spouse, children and pets, ensuring greater mobility.

While an industry-wide nursing shortage still plagues hospitals nationwide, American Traveler seeks to give aging nurses an alternative to quitting early or even retiring while their skills are still desperately in need.

“Travel Nurses have the perks of a great nursing job without the obligations that come with a permanent position,” reports the Clinical Coordinator and Documentation Manager at American Traveler. “As an example, travel nurses are given the option to work overtime rather than it being mandatory. Travel nurses joining the team help to reduce high nurse-to-patient ratios. This achieves better quality of patient care, smaller work loads and higher levels of job satisfaction.”
