What is Travel Nursing?

Exciting medical careers in destinations nationwide.

Think about the excitement of gearing up for a vacation to a place you’ve always wanted to visit or return to. Now consider what it would be like if you had an extended vacation in this very same place.

When you begin your career as a travel nurse, you’ll add a new dimension to an already rewarding profession. The difference is, you’ll be on a working vacation in the location of your choice!

As a travel nurse, you’ll work on assignment in hospitals across the country on a contract basis, generally from 13 to 26 weeks, sometimes more. Your role at the healthcare facility is to fill a gap, due to an extended absence, census fluctuation, or staff training, among other situations. Travel nursing requires RNs who are able to jump right in as part of the healthcare team, be flexible, and most of all, be a strong, confident, and dedicated nurse who puts the patient first.

Travel nursing enables you to choose where you’d like to go. We’ll match you with a travel assignment that fits the goals you envision for your career and your life.

You’ll work closely with an experienced recruiter whose healthcare staffing specialty is nursing. Your recruiter is your point of contact before, during, and after your contract to ensure your assignment is going smoothly and to begin working on securing your next one based on where you want your next travel nursing job to take you.

While you’re a travel nurse with Aureus, we’ll cover your travel to the location, pay for your housing, and provide the furnishings, right down to the pots and pans. And due to the length of your assignment, you’ll live like a local, able to fully experience your surroundings, the culture, and all of hidden gems you may not discover if you were only visiting for a short period of time.
