Q: I Signed with a Travel Nursing Staffing Agency, How Do I Decide Where to go?

Choose Top Destination Cities with a Travel Nursing Staffing Agency

Answer: Congratulations! You have made the first step toward an exciting career of travel nursing. Choosing where you want to go will be one of the questions the travel nursing staffing agency will ask you as well.

There are several factors in deciding your first travel nursing destination.

  • Each travel nurse assignment is approximately 13 weeks long, so you do not need to worry about planning where you want to go months in advance.
  • Suppose you have a family member whom you haven’t seen in awhile, you could select a location near them so you can have time to visit and form a relationship. Additionally, you may know of a sick relative who needs assistance, so you can choose a destination from your nursing staffing agency nearby.
  • Dreamed of visiting the Grand Canyon or the Rio Grande? Would you like to vacation in Hawaii or near Wine Country? Ask your travel nursing staffing agency about jobs near these destinations.
  • Do you want to escape the Texas or New Mexico summer heat? Ask about a travel nursing job in Minnesota or Oregon where the summers are more tolerable.
  • Ask your travel nursing staffing agency recruiter about top destinations or ask other travel nurses where they like to travel and work.

Wherever you go, remember you can take a break between assignments and then decide where you want to go next. Travel nursing is a great opportunity to explore new places and work assignments.
