As a travel nurse, one of the things you have to deal with on each assignment is setting up cable if you want it. If you look around you will find that some companies will pay for your cable to be set up at your new assignment, which does make it easier for you costwise, but you still have the hassle of setting it up. Some companies will also set it up for you too, but even then you have to wait for it to be done.
Well what if there was an easier way to have at cable at your travel nursing housing? There is. It is called Slingbox. I first heard about Slingbox a couple of years ago, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized what a great service it could be for travel nurses. Basically it is a device that you hook up to your TV at your home that lets you watch your TV from the Internet anywhere in the world on a laptop, desktop PC or even your phone.
No more hassles of setting up cable (just the Internet), and now you can see your local news and stay connected to home easier. So check it out. And if you are already using Slingbox on your travel nursing assignment let us all know how it is working out.
