Hello. Thank you for your time. I’m a long time travel nurse, but have been lucky in that the places I’ve been, I’ve stayed and extended, then came back home for a while, and went back out, that sort of thing. I’m with a new company and the hospitals I’ve been at (in California) don’t have any traveler needs, so I’m in unfamiliar territory. Is there a internet site where we as nursing professions can ask what other nurses have to say about a particular facility, or what peoples opinions are on whether a location is traveler nurse friendly or not? Thanks again, have a great day.
Ask a Travel Nurse Answer:
There is no one centralized website where you can find this information; however, there are some sites where you might find info on a particular hospital or area or be able to post a forum question to see if anyone else has information.
The first site that I recommend is the Delphi forum for traveling professionals (go to delphiforums.com, look for the box on the right that says “Explore existing forums”, type in “travel nursing” and the top result is a group called Travel Nurses and Therapists). The reason for my top recommendation of this site is that it has over a half million members. Search through the postings or submit one of your own.
Another forum is ultimatenurse.com. Pan Travelers has a forum, a free section, and a portion where there is a charge to access that information. You can also join Healthcare Travelbook (healthcaretravelbook.com) which is a sort of Facebook style place for travelers. You can also post questions there on their forum page.
Sorry there is no “one place” to find what you seek, but using the above sites, you might be able to get the info you need.
