    My youngest graduates from high school im May. I have 25+ years in all aspects of nursing. I need info on how to start traveling. How do you find a decent agency. Which ones are the best?

    Let me assure you that you have just begun your journey in Travel Nursing. There is indeed lots of information to sort through. I began my "traveller" experiences last year. Not knowing which Travel Agency to enlist with or "which way to go" can be overwhelming. Fortunately, I am working in Maryland and have been given the wonderful opportunity of sharing my experiences and information as a Recruiter, and also continuing my experience as a "traveller". If you would like to know more, please email me. It's my belief that "nurses can help nurses". Hope to hear from you soon. Best of luck. (travnurse@msn.com)

    I, too, have decided to give traveling nursing a whirl. I found a great bulletin board for traveling nurses at delphi.com/travelnurses I have learned so much from reading the posts. I'm planning to go June, 2001. Good Luck and HAPPY TRAVELING!

    It is never to old to do anything in life whether it be starting a new education, a new hobby, marriage. I'm over 50 and I am on my first travel assignment.

    I am so happy to see that there are many "over-40s" traveling. I am 47 and just got the "baby" off to college. I am planning to start travel nursing in May. I have waited so long for this, and this travel forum has been very helpful . Thanks to all the travelers who share!
