Hi Paige,

The traveling nurse industry has gained a lot of attention over the last few years. One of the reasons is that it offers so much flexibility and versatility within the profession. I have been a ‘traveling nurse’ for 3 years now. This is after having previous experience in ICU and emergency medicine. It is best to find a specialty first (as an RN) and gain at least 2 years in that area before hitting the road. I have traveled from Boston to the California coast. It is great visiting other places but it does not go without some obstacles. Moving, adapting to new environments, and securing housing are all part of the job- occurring frequently. Definitely not for everyone, but it is an awesome way to see the world. Best of luck!
