Looking into travelling, but not too far yet

  1. I talked to AMerican Mobile Healthcare today and (I'm from around Cincinnati, OH) they told me I could not work in Dayton because I am within a 60 mile radius from the city. Anyone else heard of this?

    Yes, to be labeled as a traveler you must be from a distance where you could not reasonably return home after a shift. somewhere in that 52-60 miles came in. You will find this ith most companies.

    I think this mis-conception is coming in lately a lot, as I am meeting a lto of agency nurses who tell me they are travelers. I don't know why, as there is no shame in working agency.

    I would consider agency, but I really like the fact that travelling companies pay for your housing, which is probably not true of agencies, right?

    Agency does not pay your housing, but 60 miles is about 1 hour of driving, and many many people do this everyday for work. To travel you will have to go further, otherwise you will not qualify for free housing by the IRS rules.

    Yes all the hospitals around here have the 50 to 60 mile rule. Why not Toledo or Cleveland?
