Being a traveler in the healthcare profession isn’t an easy choice to make. Choosing to become a nurse or pursue a career in other areas of allied health is rewarding, so why add on the extra stress of traveling?

Traveling can add new adventure and growth to your career path. While seeing far-away places, you’re also gaining experience and knowledge from different doctors and hospital administration every 13 weeks (or so). Traveling can be exciting, but it’s not for everyone. There are plenty of jobs right in your hometown. So, why choose traveling?

Every traveling healthcare professional seems to have a WHY. Take a second and ask yourself, why do I travel?

If you’re new to the traveling profession, or considering it for the first time, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons—figure out how it would affect your personal life. You’re probably going to find that one specific pro or con outweighs the rest of them. That is your WHY.

Every traveler has their own story; every traveler has their own reason why they chose this as a career path. So many travelers tell us:

  • The freedom of going wherever I please is hard to pass up.
  • I love living like a local for 13 weeks.
  • Each placement is a new experience with new people.
  • Every new experience is a learning experience.
  • I get paid to travel the country.

In order to be passionate about what you do, and be your very best at it, you have to have a WHY. Why do you do what you do? Why do you travel?
