Hello,
My name is Julie and I have been traveling for one year now but have only been at 2 facilities. I love the fact that the management and staff love me so much that at both places they have asked me to renew. The hospial I am at now has awesome staff and I am gong to hate to leave them but THE U.S is my playground and I plan on "playing". I am an ER Nurse and I love it. I love to "treat um and street um". I recently purchased a 1984 21 foot RV that I am remodeling so now I can go anywhere and not have to worry about an apartment or hotel/motel.. I found this site and thought it would be great to become a member to make new friends and hopefully make new friends at an assignment I will go to in the near future..  I look forward to meeting new people!!!

Hey all my name is Zenola. I have been traveling for 2 yrs at the end of this assignment. I am from Orlando but am currently in Augusta Georgia.  I am really enjoying being a traveler.  I also look forward to connecting with others on this site and finding things to do and places to see.

Hello! I'm new here too.

Hello,

I'm Melisa.  18 yrs. in nursing now. Primarily psych (adult & children) Case management for Anthem Insurance for a few years (certified case manager) and currently running an occ. health clinic for the government.  I'm thinking it's time for a little travel! I have thought about it for a while now, and after I sell the house in a few months, I'll store up what's left, gather up my small camper, scooter, and my BIG dog, and make a go of it.

I'm also enrolling in an online master's program soon, so a bit worried about overload!  But for now, I am researching the best companies to work for and more importantly, how I'm going to find campgrounds/RV sites to stay at while not worrying about someone walkng off with my dog!  I'd be lucky to find a doggie daycare, otherwise, anyone have any tips on what to do with the dog while I'm at work?

My camper is small (ALINER) but I'd be afraid to keep her inside with the air on in the event that I somehow lost power and she'd be inside baking!  if I leave her out (with food/water/pup tent for shade) she is at risk for being stolen.  Hmmm....I'm hoping someone has some good advice/ideas!

Anyway, My preferences wil include warmer climates since I'm from Indiana and am totally travel-deprived! :)

Looking forward to your comments/sugggestions/advice.  Your experiences are very valuable and much appreciated by this newbie!

Melisa and "Prada"  ;)

hello i'm outdoor.mom :-)  i'm an ER RN in NW Montana.  Nice to meet you all!
  i'm thinking of travel nursing to hawaii for fun.  Anybody have any good tips/insight/advice?  I would like to take my family along.


Ive been In Hilo Hawaii Big Island for 7/13 weeks with my husband its my first travel job and absolutely Love it ! Very Diverse Culture and kind of expensive if your not expecting it.  Housing and Food is $$$ in my opinion but we are paying for paradise! :) (I wish I had taken the housing stipend from my company found my own housing and pocketed the rest for food expenses..)
Lots to do
We are getting a TARGET!!! :)

tips for the big Island:

SLOW DOWN! every thing is slower here....as my hubby says just chilax! and Hang Loose :)
get a State ID you get more free things and free/discounts Entrances to stuff  being a 'local'....well worth the few bux).
don't wear the touristy garb! you won't get treated the same :)
a 4wheel drive is highly recommended to get to green sand beaches and up the mountains to the observatory etc.
I wish I had planned better and brought my own vehicle aprox. $1000.00 from California to Hawaii.. would have saved me tons of money!! (just bought a car when I got here)
always use coupons!
there is no city bus here really that you can depend on. Taxis are $$$
Dont swim in rivers the unknown under current from lava tubes has killed ppl
Don't swim in hot spring pools (staph)
The Sun is very different here, you burn fast and bad if your not careful
also bring warm clothes and jackets,umbrella is a must
I had a choice of air conditioning or laundry in unit and I chose air versus laundry but i wish it was the other way. breeze is nice here with just a ceiling fan makes it comfortable most times.

Biggest tip is.. Enjoy it every chance you get. It is paradise!

On the Big Island in Hilo the Zoo/Botanical gardens is free, most waterfalls and some amazing coastlines, mountains, mostly black sand beaches, a few white sand and a green sand beach! 10 bux a car will give the whole family access to Volcanoe national Park for a week! !(must see)

The Big Island is The Only place in Winter you can be skiing/snowboarding on a mountain and within 2 hours be in a bikini at a beach.....

Hilo is rainy (rain forest)..less touristy tho !!! Kona on other side of the Big island is a 2.5 hour drive from Hilo and more touristy but sunny most times.

           Hope this helps
           Cheryl

Hi,

I'm Mari and new to this site.  I have been a traveler for 12 years enjoying most of my assignments enough to keep doing it again..... and again.

My least favorite thing about this way of life is the contracting part.  My family says that it turns my easy going nature into a shark biting one.  It still gets my goat that it is necessary to do this to keep from getting walked on.

Once at an assignment I relax, settle in, learn the way the employer wants the job done and get to know the new area.

LOL can anyone guess what phase I'm in now?

Hi all

Hi everyone,

I am from Baltimore, Maryland and am currently on my first travel assignment in Las Vegas in a Trauma ICU.  I have only worked 2 shifts, and one of the shifts I had a little rough time with report to the day shift nurse.  She kind of spoke down to me and focused on the things that I did NOT do vs. the numerous things I had accomplished.  She even quizzed me.  I have not worked since, but my other travel nurse friend told me that the same nurse spoke to her this morning and asked her to tell me a few "improvements" that I need with my charting.   I can't help but feel so belittled by her!  I know I will be running into nurses like this throughout my travels, but it's hard to not be affected. Any words of encouragement?

-Angela
