What is the average Travel Nurse Pay ?
[quote author=” – Gypsy Nurse, RN”]Thank you for reading The Gypsy Nurse. You have taken the first step on your journey to become A Gypsy Nurse.
Travel Nurses work in a variety of settings and specialties. Generally (if you take out the provided housing perk), travel nurses make just a little more than staff nurses. It’s impossible to state a pay rate because there are many factors the go into the determination of pay. Location, need, specialty, etc.
There are some ‘travel’ specialties that do make a significant amount more than staff nurses and those are Rapid Response and Strike nurses. These can make up to double or triple what a standard staff position will pay.
One of the downsides is that you are away from home (family/friends), no paid time off (sick/vacation), and a lot of companies that do Travel Nurse staffing do not provide healthcare benefits.
I hope that this has addressed your question. [/quote]
