Why Travel Nurses in Iowa Can Earn More than Staff RN’s

Registered nurses in Iowa who take permanent, traditional positions make around $1,114 a week, or a bit over $57,000 annually, on average. That's good money, especially in a state with a cost of living lower than the national average.

But at American Mobile, we're not about the average. We look for the best talent, and we want to offer the best compensation. We have travel nursing jobs in Iowa that pay between $2,600 to $4,050 a week. That means for a 13-week assignment, you could make a travel nurse salary in Iowa of $52,650 or more!

And perks and benefits certainly don't stop at the salary. Some other ways we ensure your travel nursing experience is excellent include:

  • A dedicated recruiter who works with you to ensure you have everything you need and to plan future assignments if desired
  • Many of the benefits you would get in a traditional position, including health benefits that start the same day you do

Live More on an Iowa Travel Nursing Assignment

Spend your days off seeking adventure in unique rural areas, such as Maquoketa Caves State Park or Ledges State Park. Nature lovers might also enjoy day trips to the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden or the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium.

It's not all rural hiking and animals, though. The Hawkeye State offers art museums, theme parks, and the charming ambiance of German Villages in Amana Colonies. 

If the charm of Iowa sounds like something you'd like to experience, our recruiters are standing by to help you find a travel nursing job that lets you enjoy this Midwest state.
