Travel OR nursing with a physician wife

Published

My wife (internist) and I are thinking about traveling together.  Has anyone known a husband/wife team (nurse and physician) at their facility?  Or maybe a couple that have taken the plunge and went traveling?  Trying to see if it's feasible.  Thanks

Not nurse and physician, but nurse/nurse and nurse/surg tech. Several had their contracts at the same time, others were offset by a few weeks.

I've not heard of nurse and physician couple in the same workplace either, but every other couple has essentially acted as if they were not together at first. Some workplaces make a bigger deal about it than others, so be aware of that. Some people think that there would be bias or favoritism

I could see that.  She's a hospitalist and I'm in the OR, so likely wouldn't see her.  We work in the same hospital now, and the only time I see her is during lunch.
