Travel Nursing

Myth#6: Travel nursing doesn’t provide a reliable
income for me or my family.

Truth: In reality, travel nursing is a great way to provide a solid and steady income for you and your family. Even with the economy down from when travel nursing was at its peak, travel nursing jobs are still paying well and there are still plenty of them available. With a willingness to take the assignments where they are (if the one you want is not available), careful planning of your assignments ahead of time and a sensible approach to your finances, you can easily turn a travel nursing job into a travel nursing career.

Travel nurses also have the chance to choose where they want to work, so they can select assignments that have a lower cost of living and allow their money to buy more.

And depending on the company, travel nurses can also receive benefits such as free housing, travel reimbursement, per diem allowances and bonuses (e.g., completion, referral, loyalty) that supplement their income.
