Top 5 Reasons to Try Travel Nursing

1. Professional growth

Working at different facilities, from top research and teaching facilities to rural hospitals, enables you to broaden your skill set and learn new techniques. Not only does travel nursing showcase your adaptability, but it also proves you’re always up for a challenge and ready to learn from each new facility you visit.

2. Make more money

Travel nurses can often earn generous hourly pay rates and most companies offer overtime. Some companies even offer referral bonuses to nurses who refer their friends—just another example of how lucrative travel nursing can be.

3. Job opportunities in high demand locations

Although the economy has kept many nurses in the profession, resulting in fewer job openings, healthcare facilities are still in need of qualified nurses to fill permanent staff shortages and meet seasonal needs. Nurses who travel enjoy the job security of knowing there are assignment options across the U.S. waiting once their current assignment ends.

4. Lower Your Cost of Living

With the free, private housing that is offered by leading travel nursing companies such as Elite Healthcare Resources, taking a travel nurse assignment means that many common living expenses are eliminated or dramatically decreased.

5. Freedom and flexibility

Travel nursing provides nurses with the unbeatable freedom and flexibility to choose when and where they want to work. Nurses are able to take time off between assignments to spend time with family and friends, or take an extended vacation.
