    Anyone worked as a travel nurse? Where did you go? Was it a good experience?

    Thinking about trying it

    I have a friend from high school that does it. She has been all over the place - last I heard she was in Hawaii. She loves it. If you don't have a problem traveling to different places and not staying long periods of time - it could be for you.

    I also hear that the money is great.

    My friend is quite nomadic.

    Best of luck.

    hey you!!
    Do it. A great experience!
    just remember you get the shit jobs most of the time. Those on strike or units they cannot keep staffed.
    Pick a region and stick to it. You also get a lot of perks like housing and car. They are taking RN's in palm springs California for the winter season and the weather is to perfect and luxurious.

    I say do it pagan. You will not regret it.
