I am a nursing student in Canada (Vancouver, BC), finishing up my final year of BSN. I have thought about it for awhile now, and I am really interested in travel nursing. I am specializing in Emergency nursing currently, and have a job lined up in local ER, and orthopedic surgery.
I would really appreciate some input as to what nursing is like in California (LA, or San Fransisco area).
Sorry about the list of questions, I would really appreciate any and all input!
Questions pertaining to Travel nursing in California:
-If you have done travel nursing, what was the experience like? How challenging was it to secure a position?
-How did you get started with travel nursing (years of experience, specialty)
-Where did you travel nurse, and how lucrative was it ($$)?
Questions for LA/SF nursing:
-What do you enjoy the most about nursing in these areas?
-How is the job market? Housing situation?
-How available are opportunities for advancement in nursing with further education (with Masters/PhD)? (Teaching/Research/Entrepreneur opportunities)
-I know no one in LA/SF, what's scene like on making new friends?
Thank you so much for reading this post!
