I’m just gonna come right out and say it: There is NOTHING like the Travel Nursing lifestyle.

Not only do you get to travel and see new places, but you earn more doing it. A lot more. Put it this way. You earn enough that you don’t have to work all year round. And since traveling is what I’d do on vacation anyway... It’s perfect for me.

I know it sounds funny, but I didn’t go into Travel Nursing to travel. I just wanted to build my career.

Now here I am getting experience at hospitals all over the country. I’ve even picked up a specialty in Stepdown nursing. So I’m totally going to be ready if I ever decide to settle down into a full time nursing job somewhere. If. Big if. Because I really love the Travel Nursing lifestyle.

I would NEVER Travel with anyone but Nightingale.

Never again. The kind of support you get from Nightingale staff, you just won’t find that anywhere else. They REALLY are there to help you be the best nurse you can be. And who doesn’t want to be the best? Plus you get the best benefits and pay rates in the industry. It’s kind of a no-brainer.

For me, nursing isn’t just a career. It’s a calling.

Being there for people, helping them when they need it the most. This is why I got into nursing. This is why I get up every morning. And Nightingale gets that. I was amazed to find out that they are just as passionate about nursing as I am. That’s important, because I know that whenever I take an assignment, they have my back. Whatever I need. Nightingale takes care of everything, so I can focus on what I do best. And that’s nursing.

If you’re thinking about Travel Nursing and shopping around, just stop. You’re in the right place.

Nightingale is hands down the best. The best nurses, the best jobs, the best support, the best benefits… everything. And the best part is that you get to travel around the country, build up your career, and earn more than you ever would working on staff somewhere. Really, traveling with Nightingale changed my life, Not Travel Nursing. Nightingale. Trust me, they are top notch.

A lot of nurses ask me about Travel Nursing, and I love it. I absolutely love it.

But it’s not the pay, or the benefits, awesome as they are. It’s not the travel, either. Half the time I don’t even know where I want to go. It’s the people. Nightingale’s Nursing Coordinators are JUST THE BEST. They help with everything, from travel plans and housing to professional questions. Everything. They even help me choose the right assignments for me. Because they genuinely care about me. I know. I’m a nurse. I know what genuine caring feels like. I do it all day. That’s why I love Nightingale.
