My wife is currently enrolled in nursing school
. She starts her actual nursing classes the fall of 2003 (getting the pre-req's out of the way). Hope to graduate by spring of 2005. Right now she's interested in ICU/CCU nursing. So if she doesn't change her mind, she'll probably do about 2 years training at a local teaching hospital in their MICU or CCU department.
We've been tossing around some ideas regarding nursing careers. One thing that came to mind is traveling together; traveling nursing as ICU/CCU nurses. I know that this is a ways off in time. But it's never too early to start asking questions.
Any couple out there who "travel nurse" together? Do agencies provide programs for "couple teams" who want to do traveling nursing? If so, how good are these programs? Free housing? Good benefits? Etc, etc, etc??
This is an extremely open-ended inquiry. Any comments and suggestions are welcomed.
Thanks ahead of time! And Cheers!
