As a travel nurse, you can choose your own adventure. Do glittering city lights call your name? Then head anywhere from The Big Apple to The Big Easy! Are you more of a nature guy or gal?

Healthcare facilities rely on Advanced Global Healthcare to provide travel nurses.
A hospital near a ski resort may need travel nurses to help during their busy season. Another facility might implement a new computer charting system and need travel nurses to handle their patient load while staff members train. Or, a staff nurse could go on maternity leave and need a traveler to cover.
Whatever the reason, healthcare facilities across the USA are always looking for travelers. When you’re with Aya, you’ll get an account to browse open jobs — including pay packages — nationwide. When you’re with us, the entire country is your playground, your inspiration, your home.

Where can I make the most money as a travel nurse?

But with any job, there is much more than just pay to consider. When evaluating pay, you also have to take into account the cost of living in the area. You can rely on your recruiter and the rest of your Advanced Global Healthcare Healthcare team for valuable advice.
