5 Reasons to Become a Travel Nurse

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a travel nurse? RNs across the nation are embarking on travel nursing adventures – exploring new places, gaining clinical experience, and enjoying the financial perks.

So, what exactly are you missing out on?

Travel & Adventure

Do you have an adventurous spirit? Want to gain valuable clinical experience in premier facilities at the same time? Travel Nursing is the perfect thing for you!

Whether you want to live in a big city or take it easy in the countryside, travel nursing provides endless possibilities for exploration. Agencies offer assignments in all 50 states, giving nurses the opportunity follow their dreams inside and outside of a clinical setting.

GIFTED Healthcare’s 13-week travel contracts are long enough for nurses to familiarize themselves with their city and assigned facility, and short enough to provide them with the opportunity to travel several times per year.

Higher Pay

Travel nurses can receive significantly higher pay packages than staff nurses, often including housing and day-one health insurance.

Additionally, a large portion of the money that travel nurses make is tax-free if the nurse has traveled more than 50 miles from home.

GIFTED Healthcare even offers referral bonuses, which means you can get paid to work with your friends! Check out our nurse benefits page to learn more.

Flexible Schedule

Along with adventure and higher pay, travel nursing provides nurses with a flexible schedule. As a travel nurse, you choose when and where you want to work.

Travel nurses have the freedom to take time off between assignments to catch up with family, spend time with friends, or pursue other interests. Maintaining a flexible schedule is a great way to avoid unpleasant workplace politics and burnout experienced by staff nurses.

Professional Experience & Growth

Travel nurses work at a diverse range of facilities across the nation. They can choose from a variety of assignments to gain new experience in different clinical settings.

As a travel nurse, you’ll have the opportunity to work anywhere from state-of-the-art research facilities to rural or critical access facilities. This is a great way to strengthen your resume, broaden your professional experience, and become more adaptable with each new assignment.

Adaptability is a highly valued nurse trait, and your experience as a travel nurse will prove that you’re always up for a challenge and open to learning new things.

Helping More People in Need

All nurses do heroic work. They help countless people in need every day with their clinical expertise, hard work, and compassion.

However, as a travel nurse, you’ll have the opportunity to work in medical facilities that truly need your help. You’ll also help an incredibly diverse range of individuals across the nation.

Travel nurses help more people in need, whether they are working in disaster areas or understaffed institutions. This contribution to society is priceless, and something that travel nurses carry with them each day as they continue their courageous work.
