If you talk to a travel nurse, most will tell you that they are Loving living life 13 weeks at a time. Why 13 weeks? 13 Weeks is the typical time-frame for most travel nursing contracts. Now, this isn’t to say that there aren’t contracts out there that are shorter or longer than 13 weeks, but 13 weeks is the norm in the industry. I’ve been living my life 13 weeks at a time for the past 8 years and I love it.
What are the advantages to living life 13 weeks at a time?
It doesn’t matter if it’s a great contract or a horrible one. I can start counting down to the final week from day #1. If it’s a horrible contract, it helps to know that it’s only temporary. If it’s a wonderful contract, it can simply be 13 weeks without worries.
