    Born to Roam Travel nurse-turned-entrepreneur gears her agency to nomadic nurses who crave job security, Nurseweek.com:"On the strength of the nursing shortage, Terri Hill, RN, has traveled from the operating room to the boardroom of her own small but growing company, HC Travelers. Travel nursing for the Indianapolis surgical nurse began as a lark with a purpose. It was a chance to reconnect with distant family and-at least by one nurse-alleviate California's desperate need in 1990 for operating room nurses. With her husband and four children in tow, Hill accepted a six-week assignment to a Los Angeles-area hospital. It was a memorable month and a half of work and leisure that years later would lure her back to travel nursing and a career that she could not have imagined."

    Have Stethoscope, Will Travel:"Nurses who are willing to live out of a suitcase, face picket lines and work in different hospitals from one week to the next are nearly doubling their hourly wage. Hospitals in places such as California, Hawaii, Florida and New York are paying big money to recruiters for temporary staff to supplement their own employees during a national nursing shortage. The American Journal of Nursing reported that an estimated 255,000 traveling nurses are working throughout the United States, and that some 10,000 temporary nurse positions went unfilled earlier this year. "It's good money, but I don't just do it for the money," Mobile, Ala., resident Lois Veselits said from Estes Park, Colo. "I do it for the experience of living in other places."

    Working As A Temp, How to make it a successful experience, by Jeanne Willard:"You've probably worked along side registry nurses in your unit and thought "I could do that." Maybe you decided it would be a great chance to expand your clinical knowledge, check out other hospitals, or perhaps you'd just like to whittle down that credit card balance. With the current nursing shortage, the idea of working as a temporary nurse can be an attractive option. If you are an experienced nurse with solid clinical skills you're in great demand. Most hospitals use registry staff to meet the demands of a fluctuating census and to manage labor costs. The rewards can include additional income, job comparison, a flexible schedule, and an opportunity to learn from your peers. If you're ready to make the leap, here are tips to make this experience a successful one."

    Re: LPN/LVN TRAVEL NURSING

    I would like to consider traveling as a LPN. Questions I have are: Can you get a travel assignment that will allow you to continue from LPN to RN? Also, is it a good idea to travel if you have a small family and pets or is it more trouble than it's worth? If anyone has information on some good programs from LPN to RN please let me know the name of the school and location. Thanks!!

    Re: LPN/LVN TRAVEL NURSING

    As an experienced travel nurse, I have had the best of luck with the following companies:

    Medical Staffing Solutions (they pay best and pay for your license )

    Qshift

    Right Solutions

    Hopes that helps. Just for your information my base pay is generally 21 -28 depending on the assignment with 1500 month living expenses or furnished apt. Generallly no rental car if in the states. Alaska and Hawaii have had rental car and in Vermont. Depends on the company
    You can find more information at LPN TRAVEL

    Happy Travels!
