I have done travel assignments, the time really flies fast! Please, please, please do your research first, do not sign with the 1st company that wants you....and they will all want you! Those recruiters/companies make big bucks off us. I don't care as long as I am being taken care of! Definitely go to the delphi forums and it is the travel nurse and therapist forum. You will get so much info there....companies to avoid, recruiters to avoid, good, honest companies, answer questions about your contract....advice on your contract, etc.You'll learn the do's and don'ts of travel nursing! Plus they list a lot of open positions there...you can get an idea of how much money they pay and what the other perks are!
It is scary, but, remember, if you don't like it after 1 or 2 assignments you can go back home. Either way, you definitely need to get out of that job you have now!
Good luck! Have fun!

If anyone else has thoughts on this subject, please let me know.
