Travel Nursing Information

Travel nursing is a popular career choice for a growing number of nurses. Our nurses range from young nurses and midwives looking for adventure to seasoned staff, who want to see the country now their children have left home.  Others see travel nursing as a way to earn top salaries, while receiving great benefits and living in locations they would never get to experience otherwise.

No matter where you are in your nursing career, novice or veteran, there are certain travel nursing “how-to’s” you should be aware of before you begin:

  • Have at least two years of recent clinical experience
  • Have good references
  • Be adventurous and ready to try something new
  • Be flexible

To help you decide if this is the right career move for you, here is some additional information:

  • Rural facilities are generally smaller but play a vital role in the provision of community-wide integrated health services including primary health care services. The nature of rural nursing means you will be exposed to, and develop skills in, multiple clinical areas
  • Rural and regional facilities still require areas of expertise such as Theatre, ICU, Maternity, Emergency or Mental Health
  • Remote nursing, by its very nature, at times complements the practice of other health professionals, and at times substitutes for them. In emergency situations the remote nurse is able to undertake responsibilities normally considered the role of a medical officer
  • Changing your working environment every 4 to 13 weeks, the typical length of a contract, will make adapting to new environments second nature to you. You’ll be able to learn new “bush ways” of doing routine procedures

Being a travel nurse will help you build a better resume’ and will make you more marketable as a health professional.
