Where can I go on a travel nursing assignment?
Well, almost anywhere in the United States. The name of the game is supply and demand. If your specialty is a high demand one there will be a lot of opportunities. The less picky you are about a specific location, the more likely you will be to find an attractive assignment that meets your other criteria.
Big cities always have the most travel nurse jobs. California, Florida, New York…..all of the big populous states have opportunities. But don’t let that deter you from looking into more adventurous areas. Almost everywhere has some kind of need.
You just may have to work a little harder to find it.
The nurses who find it easiest to find travel nurse jobs are those who are open-minded about their personal criteria. Flexible may be a better word. I love working with nurses who ask me to give them some ideas. Licensing always comes into play, of course, but your recruiter can help with that. I like to ask what kind of situation one is looking for. Is it Wintertime and you love to ski? Lots of choices. “Somewhere with beaches” is a common refrain. General ideas make it much easier to give you competing options.
On the other hand, if you have a specific need (“I have grandchildren in the Phoenix area I’d like to get close to”) do not hesitate to speak up.
It’s a big world out there.
