    Hi, you sound just like me except 4 years later haha. I'm 23, have been working as an RN for the past year on a heme/onc floor. I want to get another year of experience before I travel but I just wanted to see what you ended up doing?? I also will be traveling alone but I love meeting new people and seeing new places. If you have any suggestions they would be much appreciated!

    Sounds like I'm the same boat as you are. I just turned 25 and work on med/onc. I'm planning on starting my travels the summer of 2010 or so, but am pretty open, just waiting for a good time to go. I'm excited! I'll also be traveling solo but it would be nice to have a travel buddy. Keep in touch and maybe I'll see ya on the road

    Are you working right now? I'm currently working at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philly and I would love to continue working on a heme/onc floor but I was talking with recruiters and there aren't a lot of onc opportunities. I'm thinking of moving out to Cali instead of doing the whole travel thing now.

    This is a great forum! I've had good travel experiences and negative ones. My present concern involves angst over having to give up one of my pets to hit the road after signing a contract. I travel already with two lilttle dogs, but I accumulated another pet, and it has caused me some problems in transportation, because it has a cage. I am growing progressively more negative about traveling for me, personally....probably getting old and crotchety....but this is really bothering me. I was told that I would be blackballed within this entire state if I canceled this contract.
