Travel Nursing = travel! The idea is appealing, but what exactly does the ‘travel’ part of travel nursing entail? The possibilities are limitless.

Many of our RNs send us updates of the fun they’ve had day-to-day while on the road, including gorgeous hikes, kayaking, fishing, surfing, golfing, camping, festivals and beach days, but many choose to use their contract location for other travel adventures. Nurses placed in British Columbia often visit other locations within the province, such as Haida Gwaii, Tofino, or Vancouver Island, or use their days off to visit Alaska or Washington. If you want a summer full of exciting days sprinkled with small get-aways, this is a fantastic way to do it!
