Why I Love Travel Nursing and You Will, Too!
Their pictures tell part of the story. Their words tell the rest: Great pay! Super Support! Generous benefits! What’ s not to love?
ADVENTURE. “Being a travel nurse has allowed me to explore the U.S. and learn about other places and cultures.” —Denise B., RN*
GREAT PAY. “Awesome compensation and benefits.” —Tony K., RN*
HIRED! “It took three hours from the time I met my recruiter to contract signing. That absolutely rocks!” —Steve S., RN*
SUPER SUPPORT. “My recruiter and my housing and QA coordinators are always there for me.” —Rosa C., RN*
LOCATION, LOCATION. “I had some health issues last year. But that wasn’t a problem—I got a job where my doctor was. The best part was that it was down the road from our children.” —Janice A., RN*
EASY DOES IT! “All you have to do is pack your suitcase and take your toothbrush—everything else is set up for you.” —Lisa M., RN*
NO POLITICS! “I was stressed and getting burned out from hospital politics and staffing holes. Not so anymore. Traveling is one of my ‘family’ and will forever hold a best career choices.” —Becky S., RN*
NEW FRIENDS. “My recruiter will always be part of my special place in my heart.” —Terri P., RN*
COMFORTABLE QUARTERS. “When I got to my site, I found my housing to be well furnished and equipped with everything I needed as a traveler.” —Olivia L., RN*
FAMILY FUN. “I’ve been a traveling nurse for many years. Last year my wife started traveling with me. On a whim we bought an RV. We’ve worked throughout the Southwest and now we are in California. We winter in Monterey—life’s tough!” —Richard and Sherri M., RNs*
*We’d like to thank all of these travel nurses who shared thoughts and photos from their happy experiences with Advantage RN.
