If your new facility has other travelers which is usually the case, you will definitely find each other. Travelers tend to flock towards each other. If you travel to a large hospital the orientation is usually a 2-5 days of classroom and there you will find each other. Good luck and safe traveling.

I plan to start traveling in June 2013 and would love to go to California. Any recruiter or agency recommendations? I will be traveling with my hubby and lab. I lived in San Diego for 7 years before returning to Ohio and would love to get assignments all up and down the coast. What is the average weekly take home for Tele nurses each with without a tax home? Trying to decide if I should keep a rental here in Ohio.
Thanks for any input you can offer.
- 0Aug 26, '13 by sheckler452I haven't started traveling yet because I'm looking for a good agency. But a definite con for me is the possibility of being lonely going somewhere by yourself. I didn't know strangers traveled together. Has anyone on here actually done that and it didn't go well? Or went really well? Share your knowledge with me!
- 1Aug 26, '13 by miamwith the travel industry still being pretty tight on jobs, and peoples experience being different, i think it would be very difficult for two nurses to try to arrange travel assignments together right now, but maybe not impossible. from my experience i would tell anyone who was worried about being by themselves or being lonenly that travel nursing is not for you because the majority of time you will be by yourself and have to be ok with it. yes, there is a goid chance that you will meet other staff nurses and other travelers, but for the most part they will have their own schedules and or friends/family that they do things with. So you will have to plan in advance to make alot of plans (shopping, siteseeing, outdoor activity) on your own, and hopefully make buddies along the way. Otherwise you will be misserable sitting inside your hotel/apartment just sitting around inbetween working your shifts.
