5 Unique Opportunities...Just for Nurses!


Are you thinking about becoming a nurse? Maybe you are already on your way to becoming one. Or, let’s say you’ve been in the profession for years. Whatever the case may be, you may not know about all of the unique opportunities that are out there for you.

2. Travel Nursing


Travel nurses relocate from place to place for short-term nursing assignments. Travel nursing has become increasingly popular due to the nursing shortage in the United States. As a travel nurse, you can enjoy visiting different locations, higher pay, and free benefits. Often times, further incentives are offered by hospitals and recruitment agencies such as housing, stipends, and bonuses to those who qualify.

Usually, requirements for becoming a travel nurse include a minimum of one year of clinical experience in one’s specialty and licensure in the state of employment. You must also be very competent in your specialty.

Over 400 travel nursing companies exist both nationally and internationally. Check the web as well as your local job center for opportunities.
