Poet Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “Do not follow where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” And while traveling, on its own, is thought of as a noble pursuit, travel nursing allows medical professionals to blaze a trail, see the world and keep a mind to business. With a little budgeting, traveling registered nurses can go more places, make more money and help more people.
From budgeting your drive or flight to figuring out short-term rental agreements, travel nurses’ opportunities to save money are everywhere. With the right tips, first-time travel nurses will be blazing their own trail in no time.
Travel Planning: Traveling can get expensive. Between gas for the car, snacks for the plane, and stops along the way, spending can quickly get out of control. One of the best ways traveling registered nurses can prevent reckless spending is with daily budgeting. By keeping a notepad of all daily expenditures, nurses can plan each trip and have a good idea of the costs they are likely to incur along the way. The notepad of daily expenses also serves as proof of duplicated expenses if you are ever audited by the IRS.
Travel Insurance: For traveling positions like travel nursing, insurance is important. With travel insurance, you can ensure that any losses incurred along the way are covered. This insurance will save you time, money and stress allowing you to continue to work and earn income even when the unexpected happens. This insurance can also protect your supplies and shield you from theft. A good Healthcare Staffing Agency will provide traveling nurses and traveling allied health professionals with medical insurance. The Right Solutions provides staff with free medical, vision, dental, and life insurance to ease your worries.
Stay Safe: Making sure you have a place to stay is part of responsible travel. Be sure you know exactly where you will be staying before you depart. Print out directions, confirm rentals, and check any other pertinent information. Make sure your apartment complex is aware of your arrangement and that you will be on a short-term lease. That is why a good Healthcare Staffing Agency will provide traveling nurses and traveling allied health professionals with housing assistance to prevent any negative occurrence from happening.
