Hello- Wondering if anyone has been a Travel nurse and attended school at the same time. If so, where did you go and did you like it? I will need to complete an RN-BSN program next year and wondering if this is the way to go.
Are you looking at an On-Lineprogram? Otherwise, a lot ofthelegalities of travelling will make this difficult. To be eligible for tax free benefits you can not stay in a place longer than one year. Once you have been there for a year the place you are at becomes your new tax home.
If you want to do a traditional program,it is often far easier to take a job at the hospital with the program and possibly benefit from some tuition reduction/reimbursement (though sometimes you have to be there for a while beforethe tuition bennies kick in which is a pain...)
Some RN-BSn programs are about 9 months so you mightbe able to do it.
That said, most places are not very keen to give a traveler say every tuesday and friday off for clinicals. I have usually had to workpretty much whatever schedule I was given with some exceptions. In some cases though you might be lucky andfind a place willing to work with you!
