“I heard the horror stories of how travel nurses were treated: Not true.”

Before I started traveling, I of course heard all the horror stories about how travelers were treated poorly and given crappy assignments – but that hasn’t been my experience at all. In fact – I enjoyed my first assignment so much – I’ve already signed a couple extensions at the same hospital. And I’m actually working days, after working nights for 5 years. So it’s really nice to have this experience for the first time.

Travel Nurse Interviews: Samantha, CCU-RN

“I think I made the switch from staff to travel nursing as a direct result of the Covid-19 pandemic. When covid hit – my mental health was at an all-time low. At that time, I really felt like I had lost a lot of control over many things in my life. So when I started

“I needed to take back control of my career. Travel nursing gave me that freedom”

I wish I could say I became a travel nursing because of a  desire to help others. That has truly been a bonus that I didn’t realize was going to be a part of this job when I decided to make the choice to become a nurse. The truth is I was a very young mother, married and divorced by the time I was 23 and I had a family to support.  I come from a small town that doesn’t have a lot of job opportunities and I was looking for a job that would provide some stability for me and my family. I wanted a job that I could take anywhere, that I could go anywhere with and that would always be there. I wanted to do something I could be proud of and do something that not everybody could do. So, I became a nurse! And 16 years later, I still love being a nurse, even more so than ever before. Especially now that I’ve been traveling and seeing other nurses, this was a good step that I needed in my career.

Travel Nurse Interviews: Jessica, ICU RN

The thing that sold me on Next Move was knowing that many of the recruiters are former travel nurses themselves. They really know firsthand what to look for and ask for when signing a contract and could preempt any sort of hiccup a first time traveler might experience.

Take a break between contracts: benefits of vacation

As a travel nurse agency, you may think it a bit odd that we’re encouraging you to take a vacation – but as a nurse first, and nurse powered* agency, we are acutely aware of the negative effects of working one contract after another and never reaping the benefits of taking a vacation. *Next Move
