One of the biggest benefits of travel nursing is having full control of your schedule. Need two months in the middle of summer to backpack through Europe? Done. Celebrating your bestie's over-the-top bachelorette party for a week in Nashville? Not a problem. Need an excuse to avoid your annual family reunion? Take that back-to-back contract. You dictate the time needed between contracts. Take none or some.
According to ZipRecruiter.com the average travel nurse salary is 58% more, annually than staff nurses. Most travel nurses that work 3-4 contracts in one year earn a 6-figure salary.
It should be obvious that one of the biggest travel nursing benefits is the opportunity to travel – duh! Living in a different city every few months means there are always new and exciting things to try, foods to eat, places to visit, and people to meet!
By diversifying your career through new facilities, new team members, and a variety of patients, you’ll develop skills you simply wouldn’t have as a staff nurse. In addition to enhancing your industry knowledge, you will learn to adapt and develop critical thinking and communication skills.
Moving from facility to facility, travel nurses are given endless opportunities to meet and connect with people from all walks of life. Not only does this provide them with a broadened perspective on life, but it also increases their network of healthcare professionals.
There has been and likely always will be a demand for skilled travel nurses. With thousands of jobs released daily, there’s never a shortage of available assignments.
“I really miss the drama & politics from my staff job.” - Said no travel nurse ever. As soon as you become a travel nurse, you will immediately be free of all the drama because technically – you don’t work for the hospital.
