When should an RN consider taking on travel nursing assignments?

“I think a good time to start travel nursing would definitely be after a little bit of experience to feel confident in your nursing skills, but I've met travel nurses of all ages and everyone seemed to adapt really well. I chose to be a travel nurse after working as an inpatient ER nurse as well as a flight nurse on a helicopter. I had been doing that for approximately 10-12 years, and I thought now is the opportunity to travel, see different places of the country, and perhaps relocate.  Whitney T., RN, ICU 

 

"I think the perfect time to start as a traveler in your career is at least a couple years after you're into your career because I don’t think you should go right into traveling."  Latasha J., RN, OR
