Adapt to new coworkers and facilities.
“The job not only requires knowledge in nursing, but an ability to assimilate with other people and organizational structures. My career as a traveling nurse has given me a whole new life that I highly recommend for others.”
— Traveler Nina C., Traveler of the Month March 2014
Ask for help.
“Don’t be afraid to ask for help — all those stories of hospital staff disliking Travelers are not true 99% of the time; they like the extra help. Be adventurous and enjoy your temporary new home.”
— Traveler Danielle A., Traveler of the Month July 2014
Make time for adventure.
“You’re a Travel Nurse, so travel! Check out as many sights as you can! I know you are tired after 3-plus 12-hour shifts, but there is life to live. So whether that means relaxing in a coffee shop, taking a hike on the ocean hillsides, or exploring a new neighborhood in town, get going! Adventure is out there!”
— Traveler Dan A., Traveler of the Month August 2014
