    Might I suggest that you read a few threads here first? This question get asked a lot. You at least 3 years away from needing to make any decision and you may fall in love with a practice area first. That is where you should be. If not, at least you will have a more focused question. Open ended questions when you don't even know what to ask are a waste of your time and ours.

    The "hot" specialties right now seem to be L&D, ER, and OR. Of course, by time you finish school & get a few years experience that could all change. It's important to find an area of nursing that you really love and that can take some time.

    These boards are a wealth of information (along with a few other places on the web you can google about travel nursing) so read past threads and learn as much as you can. I think a lot of us have been guilty of asking questions before doing a little more research! Oh well. ;-)

    Good luck in school!! Work hard and keep striving toward your goal of travel nursing.
