Travel nursing is an excellent match for nurses seeking adventure, premium compensation and the opportunity for professional development. In order to work as travelers, nurses sign on with agencies which are contracted with health care facilities to provide supplemental staff in the form of travel nurses. Nurses generally work as employees of the staffing agency on contracts which define such things as dates and location of the assignment, pay rates, stipends and other benefits. "Deal points", as compensation components are commonly referred to, can differ from agency to agency but the amount of compensation afforded the nurse is determined in a consistent manner. The agency takes their bill rate for the assignment, less costs and profit margin, and then uses the remainder to create a compensation package for the nurse. The fewer benefits the travel nurse chooses the higher hourly pay rate they can command. Some of the benefits offered by travel companies can include: relocation assistance, housing, furniture rental, rental car, license reimbursement and subsidies for various living expenses. When full compensation packages are considered travel nurses generally earn more than staff nurses.
Other benefits travel nurses enjoy come from the traveling itself. Nurses have the opportunity to take assignments from coast to coast and experience cities and states they've always wanted to explore. Travel nursing assignments are usually 13 weeks in length, providing sufficient time to get the feel of a city while being short enough to move around and visit many destinations. Additionally, travel nursing is great for those who want to further their careers by gaining exposure to new practices and technologies. Since travel nurses can work in different facilities all over the US, they are able to work with a wide variety of health care professionals in a variety of settings. This exposure is invaluable for professional growth and development.
