Travel Nursing in Boston

  1. Hi all! My husband is being relocated to Boston, and I think I'm going to give this whole travel nursing thing a try, in order to "play the field", if you will, before we decide where exactly to settle. Plus, the money and housing will be better as a traveler than just taking a job somewhere. I'll be working in L&D. Has anyone had any assignments in Boston who could give me some info about hospitals? Another nurse told me that Mass General and Brigham and Women's are both good hospitals to work for. Anyone know anything about any of the outlying hospitals in the towns around Boston? I know the housing is ridiculously expensive, which is one reason why travel nursing there looks so appealing to me. Also, if any of you have any ideas on particular travel nurse companies that get a lot of work in the Boston area, I'd certainly appreciate whatever info you can share. I've also been on the Delphi website, as another nurse suggested, and found it very helpful. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Please be careful traveling without a "tax home" you will have to pay taxes on the value of your housing and you won't be able to deduct your daily Meals and Incidentals.

    I have travled without a tax home for 2-3 years, no problems at all, your salary just gets taxed, still make money, not that much difference, Cross Country trav Corp has an office in Boston, My recruiter Shannon Wright works there, I am in Florida, I keep kidding her about all the snow, I don't get online that often, but you can call and ask to speak to her. She might know what is available.

    Are you making $35/hr in Fla and getting back over $5000 in taxes?
