9 Myths About Travel Nursing Revealed

Jeff Long | Scrubs Magazine

Travel Nursing

Myth#8: Having too many travel nurse assignments
on my résumé may look bad.

Truth: Actually, the broad range of experiences that travel nurses have can bolster their résumés. Since travel nurses are inherently exposed to and have to learn different nursing philosophies and methods, they’re able to step right in and help out without a lot of extended orientation. Plus, being a travel nurse shows several traits that nurse managers look for, like being able to easily settle into new environments, flexibility and the ability to learn quickly.

    I don't understand some myths here, but that is why they are probably myths. People do not understand them. Travel nurses are a category of people we need for certain jobs. They are normal people just like us who travel more and probably have a very nice travel insurance contract. That's all.

    I have been a travel nurse for a few years. It was fun while it lasted and I even managed to stay at a few eilat hotels. Anyways, my point is that you can be a travel nurse for a while and then come back to being in just one place where you want to settle.

    Travel nursing is quite challenging. I have 30 years of experience and it was difficult. I agree with most of the statements in this article, except the staff nurse attitude towards travelers.
    It varies by facility, some feel travelers are taking away local jobs, some feel you don't know your stuff because you have to ask questions re: routine. I was Never met with open arms.

    Great post! Two our our recruiters from Onward Healthcare just did a podcast on this topic this past week. We touched upon many of these points as well as the role the traveler plays when selecting an assignment and how working as a travel nurse impacts your career goals.
