I am wondering how you knew you were ready to take off and be a travel nurse? What made you feel you would do well as a travel nurse?
I started my nursing career working in a progressive care unit at a large teaching hospital. We focused on cardiothoracic surgery and transplant and had a ratio of 1:3-1:4 and my patients were a mix of general care and IMC. I worked here for one year prior to moving and working in a much smaller hospital in the PACU. I’ll be coming up on working in the PACU for one year soon, and would like travel as a PACU nurse. Do you think I would be adequately prepared to travel as a PACU RN after one year of working in the PACU and 2 years of RN experience? Or should I wait closer to the 2 year mark of PACU experience? Any travel PACU nurses with advice/tips/insight would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
