Travel Nursing Offers Perfect Opportunity to Become a Working Tourist, Kathryn Lynn Trammel Says
Can’t decide whether you want to work for high pay or travel the world? Do both! 2023 is the perfect time to get into travel nursing, advises travel nurse Kathryn Lynn Trammel. Here are five reasons Trammel believes now is the time to get into travel nursing.
Most nurses are ready for a change of scenery
Even in 2023, most of us are still decompressing from two years of pandemic restrictions. Travel nursing offers opportunities to make up for lost time. Travel nurses have opportunities to work with new coworkers in new clinics and hospitals near great places to explore different cultures, climates, and lifestyles. For many nurses, travel nursing allows restoring the balance between their personal and professional lives while they find their passion again.
Travel nursing offers a chance to avoid burnout
A typical travel nursing contract covers 13 weeks of service. That is long enough to earn a substantial amount of cash but not so long that you don’t know how long you have to live with the consequences of your decision.
Things can go wrong in a travel nursing job, but they won’t go wrong for very long! At the end of 90 days, you will have the opportunity to refresh and recharge in an entirely different location. Then you can always look for another contract with a new perspective on your job. A few months in a different work setting can give you the insights you need to make permanent, positive changes in your career.
Travel nurses are in high demand in 2023, Kathryn Lynn Trammel says
Every nursing specialty will be in high demand in 2023. Travel nurses are needed in all specialties with almost any experience level.
Hospitals and clinics struggle to keep the staff they need to meet JCHA requirements. Critical and intensive care (CCU/ICU) and emergency (ER/ED) nurses are needed all over the USA. Larger hospitals are in special need of telemetry specialists. Nurses with certifications in ultrasound and imaging specialties are always needed. But traveling LVNs and LPNs are in demand, too.
Pay for travel nurses has never been higher
If you have a nursing license, your skills are in demand. You can negotiate your rates and benefits! Travel nurses receive non-taxable allowances for lodging, food, uniforms, and travel. Travel nurses also receive sign-on, completion, retention, and referral bonuses.
What do you need to become a travel nurse? If your state is a member of the enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC), you can quickly obtain a nursing license in any state covered by the compact. With just a year or two of experience in your home state, you can practice nursing all over the United States. See the country, and see the world while earning great pay and filling in the gaps in patient care where nurses are needed most. Let 2023 be the year you get into travel nursing.
We hope this information leads you to the best traveling experience.
