Travel Nurse

Home / Travel Nurse


The travel nursing industry serves as a great boon to hospitals confronted with volume-staffing challenges, especially in rural or less populated areas. Travel nurses have the same education, experience and expertise of standard in-house medical experts, but they also have the means and flexibility to fill staffing shortages at various hospitals — typically covering time windows that range from two months to 6 months (26 weeks).

Acuity Healthcare’s army of accomplished travel nurses is prepared to handle any staffing shortage, most of which involve sudden changes among hospital workers — including maternity leave, personal leave of absence or debilitating injury; and in most cases, Acuity travel nurses will have input in determining their daily/weekly schedules with each hospital. The above information addresses the emerging growth of travel nursing within the healthcare industry. It also speaks to the importance of accessing a formidable group like Acuity Healthcare, which has an unmatched database of market-saturation studies, hiring contacts and prominent decision-makers. The work will be consistent. The multitude of experiences could be life-changing; and the opportunities for advancement will be plentiful.
Travel nurses within specialized fields (Emergency Room, Operating Room, Intensive Care Unit, Pediatrics, Geriatric Medicine, etc.) are in demand for every state and all corners of the country.
As such, the nurses are in the enviable position to command an excellent suite of perks from prospective employers, namely market-driven salaries, housing reimbursement, full benefits (medical, dental, vision, possible 401k matching) and other bonuses tied to performance and service initiatives, or connected to relocation reimbursement.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, via the site, a full-time registered nurse exclusively working at a single hospital proffered an average median salary of $71,370 in 2018.

Travel nurses, in turn, should hold expectations of meeting or exceeding the above figure, citing a number of positive factors:

  •  The higher demand for transient nurses throughout the country.
  • The top-shelf perks associated with traveling great distances to be a primary caregiver.
  • The reasonable expectation of working ‘overtime’ hours on a weekly or monthly basis.
  • The greater exposure to various hospitals in the United States, many of which may be looking to fill crucial senior positions with new full-time staffers.

Travel RN’s are trained to adapt to any circumstance when supplying expert care, regardless of environment, access to modern equipment and the patient’s level of pain or discomfort.
This hyper-focused approach to handling business prepares travel nurses for working in as many as six different hospitals or markets in a given year.
But alas, travel nursing isn’t for everyone. It sometimes takes a toll on personal obligations away from work, and the ever-changing schedules can be grueling for all comers.

Acuity Healthcare takes full consideration of outside factors (family, well-being, long-term aspirations) when placing travel nurses throughout the country.
