  1. Hi! I am a nursing student in Canada, finishing up my final year of BSN. I have thought about it for awhile now, and I am really interested in travel nursing, with an end goal of moving to Seattle area. I am specializing in Emergency nursing currently, and have a job lined up in local ER, and orthopedic surgery. As much as I love Vancouver, I really need to move for many reasons. Housing market here is a total disaster, nursing opportunities here are not as diverse as the states, and I want to embark on an adventure! I would really appreciate some input as to what nursing is like in the states, and Seattle area. Any fellow Vancouverites turned Seattleites? Sorry about the list of questions, I would really appreciate any and all input! Questions pertaining to Travel nursing: -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 Seattle nursing: -What do you enjoy the most about nursing in Seattle? -How is the job market in Seattle? 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 Seattle, what's scene like on making new friends? Thank you so much for reading this post!
