So I am starting to think that the company I currently work for is going to go under sooner rather than later. Things are getting pretty bad, management is horrible, and job security is definitely a thing of the past. I am afraid it might be best to get out now before things get worse. I currently commute 1 hour to work each day, and guess I have a few options. 1) stay where I am and pray it doesn't get worse, 2) try to get another job at a similar unit in the opposite direction, but with a similar commute, and 3) go into travel nursing.
Travel nursing is what I would prefer to do, but I definitely have some concerns. I am a newer nurse and started as a new grad in a level III NICU 15 months ago. My main concern is that with my experience I will not be able to get assignments consistently and may have blocks of time before assignments where I can't find work. That worries me. I have been cross-trained in my current job to work in PEDS or PICU, and am currently being trained to go on NICU transports/deliveries. I am hoping that those things will increase my marketability (not a word, but ohwell) but I am just worried about keeping work. Do I have a chance at travel nursing?
