I agree with Asystole. If your scheduler is flexible and you aren't trying to take 3 week vacations every other month, you should be able to take a vacation with minimal PTO. Also, it will depend on how your new job works, but I got more PTO from working OT. Travel nursing is an option, but I wouldn't go through the trouble just to get the vacations, especially if you prefer a steady job. Travel nursing is fun, don't get me wrong, and it might be a solution worth looking in to, but it isn't necessarily your only solution.
