I've been really dedicated and really lucky thus far in my nursing career and actually managed to land a job in the ED as a new grad in CA. I had this crazy idea when I started nursing school that some day after getting a few years of experience I wanted to spend 6 months working a LOT of hours, and then take 6 months off. Now my family is bi-national, and having the ability to spend extended amounts of time in my wife's home country with her family would make us all much happier. We are very good at living on very little money.
My question is, does something like this (6 month on 6 month off) exist?
Could I do this through travel nursing? Working for a registry?
I intend on staying in the ED where I am now for a couple of years until I have my feet under me, but I'd like to start exploring options now.
Thanks for your time!
