What Is Travel Nursing?

Travel nursing is a healthcare career path for nurses—primarily registered nurses (RNs)—who are interested in taking temporary short-term or long-term assignments at hospitals and clinics across the country.


Typical durations for travel nursing assignments are 13 weeks, with some assignments between 8 weeks and 26 weeks. Nurses often work with a travel nursing recruitment company, like TRS Healthcare, to find opportunities that fit their career goals, location interests, financial needs, and lifestyle requirements.

Why Become a Travel Nurse?

There are many reasons why RNs turn to travel nursing after working as staff nurses. Whether it’s to revitalize their career, improve job security, find better pay and benefits, expand nursing skills in new healthcare settings, explore different cities and cultures, or utilize expertise to provide quality care in underserved communities, working as a traveling nurse can be a rewarding prospect.


If you’re looking for nursing jobs that allow you to work with different populations, provide a change of pace, and help build up your résumé, a career as a travel nurse might be the perfect opportunity for you.
