American Traveler puts the "travel" in travel nursing

While USA Today reports that 37 percent of Americans will terminate vacation plans this year and 24 percent will shorten trips or stay closer to home, travel nursing companies such as American Traveler are sending qualified nurse job candidates and their families to Maui, Seattle, San Diego and Orlando, AND providing them with top benefits and lucrative earnings.

"We call it the Travel Nurse Getaway," said recruitment VP, Mary Kay Hull for American Traveler. "First we find you a travel nursing job that meets your criteria for location, hospital and high nurse pay. Then, we add in free private housing, full health benefits, and the option to travel with family, friends and pets. We even offer prepaid gas cards on some assignments."

"With a 17 percent pay increase over last year and a salary 20 percent higher than permanent nurse staff, you'll find our travel nurses at Disney and Six Flags, touring wine country and riding horseback in the desert," says a representative for the travel nurse company.

Travel nurses enjoy a distinct, competitive advantage in today's nurse job marketplace. The demand is such that travel nursing jobs are abundant, and because the competition among travel nurse companies is intense, candidates have plenty of choices.

"Whereas one company tried to send me where I didn't want to go, American Traveler never strayed from what I wanted: high pay and a travel nursing job in Washington State. Sitting in a hot tub on the Wenatchee River surrounded by rushing whitewater and snow capped mountains has made for quite the adventure," said Med/Surg RN, Kirstin K.

Travel nurse consultants at American Traveler say newcomers to the travel nursing profession often wonder whether they will be afforded enough time or energy to enjoy their destination, after working hard all week. The resounding answer from recruiters is “Absolutely!” Travel nurses work overtime only when they want, typically work three days a week and use the remainder of their time exploring the new city or planning short excursions with family and friends.

"We take care of all the details. You pack your bags and hit the road for the working vacation of a lifetime," says Hull.
