  1. 0 [font=lucida grande]i see a lot of seasonal rn positions advertised, especially around florida and other southern states. i'm assuming this is due to the cyclical population of snow bird states. am i correct in my assumption?

    [font=lucida grande]the reason i'm asking is because i'm thinking of going for an rn but my ultimate goal (in any job) is to be able to work seasonally--take at least three months off a year (unpaid, of course.) am i making a wise decision here? is there a sizable, stable seasonal rn job market now and in the future? is willing to work only seasonally an advantage (employer gets you only when needed) in finding jobs or a handicap?

    if rn is a bad choice for a seasonal gig are there any positions in health care that are better suited for working seasonally?

    I don't think there is anything wrong with wanting to work seasonally. However, you have to get experience as an RN of at least a year.

    Your right and I had such a hard time finding a job because all the hospitals around me wanted seasonal nurses with experience who can just come in for a few months then leave, so you definitely need experience because like a recruiter told me, they dont have time to train seasonal nurses. I also spoke to a nurse her title is interim she explained that she had 2 homes and during the winter she would work 4-5 months in florida then go back up to NJ and work there too, its like a contract.

    Did you happen to see any offers for lpn that are seasonal, too? I have thought this would be a good deal for me and my spouse since we have lived summers in GA and winters in FL.

    Any more news about this?
