Why Short Term Travel Nursing Might Be For You

If you’re one of those people who has mulled over the idea of travel nursing, but haven’t been ready to pull the trigger, then a short-term assignment might be just the answer you’ve been looking for.

Short-term travel nursing assignments can last from 4-13 weeks, providing RNs the opportunity to earn great pay while dipping their toes in the waters of travel nursing. Even if you’re happy with your current position but are looking for a temporary change of scenery, a short-term assignment can help you regroup and reinvigorate your passion for your career.

Short-term assignments pay considerably more than standard travel nursing assignments because they are often quick-start positions that require you to begin sooner. If you don’t feel the need to plan your life out years in advance, then a quick-start position is the optimal way to earn a lot of money in a short time.

RNs may be called for short-term travel nursing assignments for:
•    EMR conversion projects
•    Staffing shortages
•    Maternity Leave
•    Sickness
•    Epidemic
•    Hard to Fill Positions

Short-term travel nurses who fill in when a hospital is in a bind are always well-respected and highly valued, which is why hospitals pay them so much more. In addition to the higher pay, you still receive all of the other great benefits that make travel nursing so appealing, from free housing to retirement to medical and dental coverage. In addition, NurseChoice offers valuable bonuses and incentives that will drive your income higher and higher.

If any of the situations below apply to you, then you're probably ready for a short-term assignment:
•    I want to earn more money in less time
•    I’m planning to retire but still want an income
•    I’m thinking of retiring and want to check out possible locations to live
•    I’d like to take a leave of absence from my facility to freshen my skills
•    I’m burning out and need a change of scenery
•    I want to take a sabbatical to broaden my horizons and learn how other hospitals work
•    I’m in between jobs or shifting to a new facility
•    I’m going back to school and am on a break
•    I’m looking for short-term local assignments
•    I want an extended visit with my children or grandchildren
•    I don’t want to commit to a long-term position at a hospital
•    I want the flexibility and freedom of shorter assignments

If you could see yourself in any of those situations, then it might be time to consider a 4-week, 8-week or 13-week travel nursing assignment.

If you’re at a stage where you’re re-evaluating your personal or professional options, short travel nursing assignments can help bridge the gap between your present and the future of which you dream. For more information about the options available to you, visit the NurseChoice website today.
