I’ve had so many great experiences as a travel nurse. I have thoroughly enjoyed being exposed to the many places and people that I have encountered and look forward to continuing that journey as I continue to advance my education.
Traveling nursing has changed my life profoundly. I have proved to myself that I can make it on my own, that I am able to make friends anywhere I go, and that I am flexible and able to handle the challenges that are in front of me.
Traveling has helped me think outside the box, step outside my comfort zone. I think all nurses should travel to experience different locations. Thank you for helping me follow my dreams and also stay focused on my education goals
Solo travel not only builds confidence, self sufficient skill building, experience dealing with networking, but also opens your eyes, heart, and mind to the difference in cultures and communities, as well as professional differences and appreciation for what you have.
I learned many things in travel assignments that nursing school & my professors never taught me. I was able to grow exponentially as an individual, & ended up making some ever last friendships. I proved to myself that I could make it on my own, & I’m still so proud of myself for taking that step.
Before I became a travel nurse, I put a limitation on how much I could do as a nurse. After I took my first contract, I realized the sky is the limit. I took the limitations off my life & really began to live. Thank you TravCon for assisting me in being the change the healthcare world needs.
Traveling changed my life. I was scared to take the leap of faith, leaving my home & family, but I have never looked back. I’ve grown personally & professionally as a travel nurse.I’m more understanding to those with different backgrounds & cultures because I have been exposed to them. I have seen new and better ways to do things working at multiple hospitals.
The benefits of traveling are never ending. It has allowed me to see the country & provide the flexibility to see the world. I believe the most important part of professional & personal development is how you interact, engage and treat people. Traveling has consistently motivated me to be independent & forward moving, and has been fuel to my “get it done” mentality!
I enjoy travel nursing! Travel nursing has given me the opportunity to understand & be a part of a different culture outside of Louisiana. The opportunity to understand the way others live within different states has given me a different outlook on how home remedies, medication, & overall lifestyle is not the same from person to person, state to state, city to city.
Traveling has changed my life, truthfully for the better. I have worked at some of the most prestigious hospitals in the nation and I have been able to do this because of the experience I have gained as a travel nurse. I know that moving forward in my career, I will not struggle to obtain practicum sites for school, & ultimately a career as an NP because I have worked hard to get where I am.
I want to be able to provide as much care for my parents as I have for the rest of the world through nursing. Traveling has allowed me to improve my cultural competence and communication skills. I plan on using this newly acquired skill set as I move forward to collaborate with other healthcare professionals and help the world with mental health! My motto: Never break a promise you make to yourself.
Traveling as a nurse has broadened my knowledge as a nurse by showing me different ways to care for my patients. It has allowed me to develop more social skills and gave me more confidence. I overcame my fears by jumping out as a traveler and would not change anything about this experience. I have a better view how nurses work together as a team. Being a travel nurse is one of my best decisions.
Traveling has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and pick up new skills quicker as well as adapt in a short span of time. I much more confident in my nursing skills than when I just started traveling a year ago. I of course get the first day jitters and nerves when taking on a new assignment but confident that I will always have the skills to succeed and will never be afraid to ask for help if I need.
Becoming a travel registered nurse has expanded my knowledge and experience as a healthcare provider. I’ve learned to be more open-minded & adaptable as I travel from facility to facility. I’ve had the opportunity to learn new & creative ways to provide healthcare, & am grateful for the opportunity to travel as a registered nurse as the challenges have helped create a better version of myself.
Traveling has shown me that no matter where you are at in the United States or where you work, everyone needs a little more love and support. I have gotten to meet so many amazing and intelligent individuals. I have gained confidence in myself and in my work. I have learned how to find myself and live my life to the fullest. Travel nursing has been my greatest blessing.
I could not be more grateful for my experiences as a travel nurse. Not only has it allowed me to meet my fiancee and some of my best friends, it allowed me to grow exponentially as a nurse. Being thrown into unfamiliar environments and cities taught me to be flexible, to be resourceful, and to be very open minded. I now feel like I can be thrown into any position, any specialty, and excel in those environments.
Traveling challenges me to use my current skills to be impact in clinical areas of need. I come in to support and learn at the same time. I have to flexible to adapt to a new environment yet also skilled enough to meet any challenge. I become part of a team. I work hard and leave great sense of pride for the work I’ve done and what I was able to contribute! It’s such a great opportunity for professional & personal growth.
