Travel Nursing (TN)
A travel nurse is a nurse who is hired to work in a specific location for a limited amount of time. Travel nurses typically work 13 week periods in one area, and move around the country depending on where they are needed. Because the demand for nurses is so high, there are often shortages in certain areas, and a traveling nursing will be hired to come in and work in a specific position for a short amount of time.
Travel Nursing Advantages
The major benefit of travel nursing is that you get to choose where you live and work. If you are tired of your current location or want to get away from cold weather for the winter, you have the ability to find a job in a different location and move for a short period of time.
You are able to make money from wherever you like and are able to change locations and assignments regularly if you choose. With a travel nursing job, you also have the ability to vacation where you work and explore new cities and parts of the country or world on your time off. You have the opportunity to see new places and test them out for a while to see if you would want to eventually live there permanently.
