I work with quite a few travel nurses from many different companies and they all seem very happy with their lifestyles. I am interested in a unique situation though. I have 15 years experience in med/surg and am desperate to get out. I have contacted a few companies and in exchange for training offered long term contracts but they acted as if I were speaking another language. I don't want to quit my present job to train in a specialty for a year with a significant pay cut. In other words, since I don't have experience in anything other than med/surg, I'm stuck. What I'd like is a company that will hire me, send me to a hospital, that hopital will train me in a specialty ( OR, ICU L&D, anything) and in exchange I will sign a contract for however long they feel their investment has been met. Any advice? Are there any companies out there that offer this?
