Travel nursing has become a staple in the healthcare field, as there is a nationwide shortage of nurses. Nursing shortages occur thanks to seasonal challenges (flu season), changes in clinical/ specialty-related needs, or in response to rare catastrophes (such as earthquakes or events like COVID-19).

Amidst a nationwide shortage of nursing, travel nursing has become an appealing career choice for both full and part-time nurses. Like any other career, the field has pros and cons. It is up to each individual, in their unique circumstances, to decide if travel nursing is right for them.
