What is Travel Nursing?

Put simply, travel nursing is working closely with a staffing company like Advanced Travel Nursing to find you different nursing assignments that best fit your skills and lifestyle, across the United States. Typical travel nursing assignments last 13 weeks and you can choose to extend your assignment, or choose an entirely new travel destination. All travel and housing costs are covered by Advanced, all you have to think about is your nursing career.

That’s where it becomes more than just a regular nursing job.

Because travel nursing is taking your career on the road - doing what you love, in places you never thought you’d visit. It’s stepping out the door into exciting destinations, new opportunities and fresh relationships. It’s 3 months in the mountains, then 3 months by the beach. It’s making your own seasons and freedom to make your own schedule. You can even bring a friend! Travel with a friend or refer your nursing friends and earn even more cash.

It’s rising to your potential and discovering a career journey.

Sounds good right?

So How Does Travel Nursing Work?


At first it isn’t that different from a permanent placement position. When you decide to start traveling, we assign you a personal recruiter who works closely with you to learn your career goals and travel preferences.


When we find you a nursing assignment that fits, we help you with all licensing and credentialing for that particular state. Once all the paperwork is out of the way, it’s time to pack your bags and hit the road.


You can choose to use our corporate turnkey housing, or locate your own and take advantage of a lucrative tax-free housing stipend.


Then, you spend the next 13 weeks in your facility - meeting new people, learning new skills and exploring new places. Once your nursing assignment is up, you can stay on longer or discover new destinations. It’s your nursing career, so it's up to you.
