Information for Nursing Students and Aspiring Travel Nurses

Share

 The road through nursing school is not for the faint of heart. To succeed at nursing school takes stamina, adaptability, skill, and smarts. After that, if you’re thinking about becoming a travel nurse, you’ll want to get a year or two of hospital experience before you hit the road.

I wanted to share a couple of resources that provide information for nursing students and aspiring travel nurses.

First, The Nerdy Nurse recently published an article called “15 Things Every Nursing Student Needs to Know.” The list includes a lot of great tips, from #4, “Study groups will help you keep your sanity,” to #7, “Your definition of busy will change,” to #10, “Your sense of humor will expand,” to #13, “Being a team player is critical.”

Second, if you’re thinking about travel nursing, follow this link to the “Student Guide to Travel Nursing,” a super informative infographic from pet-friendly travel nurse staffing company, Medical Solutions.

Third, ask and you shall receive … awesome advice from Travel Nursing Blogs Ask a Travel Nurse Expert, David Morrison, RN. David’s been traveling for more than 16 years and is the author of the “Travel Nurse’s Bible: A Guide to Everything on Travel Nursing.” Submit your own unique question to David here, or read through some of his past replies here — a lot of times you’ll find that other travel nurses (aspiring or active) and students have had the same questions as you!

If you are interested in this career path I would recommend getting lots of information for nursing students and aspiring travel nurses. There’s a lot of great info out there and it can help you get started, from nursing school, to gaining hospital experience, to beginning traveling, to maintaining a happy and successful career as a travel nurse.

Do you have any good resources to share with others when it comes to information for nursing students and aspiring travel nurses? If so, please share with us in the comments!
