What do you like about travel nursing and what don't you like about travel nursing?
I like that my family and I are able to see new places that we haven't seen before. We have experienced awesome things so far due to travel nursing. For instance we never would have known to come to Sitka, AK if we were just going to go on vacation. We would have maybe gone to Anchorage or Juneau and wouldn't even have known about Sitka when coming to visit AK. It is gorgeous in Sitka.
Also the money for travel nursing is pretty good as well. It allows my wife to be a stay at home mom with our daughter. I also like that you don't have to get involved with all the politics when going from one place to the next. There is nothing wrong with getting involved and making your place of work better when you are permanent staff, it can just be tiring and exhausting making positive changes.
Some of the dislikes about travel nursing is being away from family and friends, not knowing where you are going next until the last second sometimes. It can be tiring to have to prove yourself to everyone you are starting at a new hospital that yes, you do know what you are doing.
Overall, I would say the positives outweigh the negatives. I am interested in seeing what others think about travel nursing.
