Home Health Traveler

So I have done ER traveling in the past. I stopped ER 4 years ago and have been doing home health. Not private duty, but like home health Oasis...that whole thing. Any home health travel nurses out there? Is it a specialty that even gets contracts? Do you get compensated for using your car to see patients? (Currently the organization I work from provides the car.) Just curious, have the travel bug again and I’d like to pay off some debt.

There are home health travelers. I believe compensation varies when it comes to miles and visits. Possibly an hourly rate instead with guaranteed hours and travel expenses.

Doing home health as a traveler yet?

I just started my first home health contract as a traveler.  I have been working in HH about 3.5 years.

Let me know how its going!
