Top Ten Tips & Resources for Finding Travel Nurse Housing

Because of a sense of loyalty I felt to my hospital, which had given me so much over the last few years, I stayed onboard.

When Lives Are On The Line & Nurse Burnout Is Real

There isn’t a job on the planet that’s 100% “stress-free.” For those of us who don’t work in health care – you’ll often hear the joke: “at least nobody died” or “it’s not brain surgery”. That’s because the daily decisions most of us make at work have exactly zero impact on whether someone lives or dies. For registered nurses: The exact opposite is true.

“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.
