ICU/CCU TRAVEL NURSE

  1. Hi everyone...

    Anyone considering using their critical care skills to step up into a travel nurse position? My wife and I are experienced travelers, and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We'd be happy to address any questions or concerns, and pass along advice or suggestions that may benefit anyone interested. Cya

    I would be interested in learning more about ICU travel nursing. I have only been a nurse for about 6 months and know I need at least a year more of experience. What company did you travel with? How do I decide what company to go with? When should I start looking and applying? Is there really a big need for travel nurses now with the economy? Where are there jobs available?

    I am looking to do some international travelling to New Zealand, but the process is long and I want to ensure that it's worth all the time I'm investing as I have a spouse and daughter that will travel with me. Do you know anything about NZ?

    I would recommend that you have more than a year's experience, possibly two. The hospital doesn't want to hold your hands when you get there. I've worked w/ new nurses that traveled, and they weren't ready. There is just so much that you can pretend you know. There is a difference between confidence and competence. Get some more experience and then start asking some questions.
