I am interested travel nursing . I'm hoping to start in March or April 2013. I have been looking at PNS , cross country ,and Talemed. I would like to go to you North Carolina, Arizona, Alaska, or Florida. At that time I will have about 18 months of experience in Med-surg/neuro. I would like to get opinions if anyone has work for any of companies. Opinions for first time travelers of these companies . Does travel have down periods? Some companies say that they will fly you out to your assignment. Is this true? I have also read that you need to have some money saved prior to leaving on your sign up because some cost are fronted by you? One of the places that is listed with assignments is IHS. Any comments or advice are appreciated.
