Staying fit as a travel nurse


Keeping in shape while you are on the road as a travel nurse is not the easiest thing to do, the only thing more difficult may be getting in shape while on the road as a travel nurse. It is easy to opt for fast food instead of cooking something healthy and spending your free time with new friends and site seeing (although you can get a lot of walking in) than taking the time to exercise. Throw in changing work schedules and new sleep cycles every 13 weeks and it is easy to see why fitness may take a back set while you are on a travel nursing assignment. That’s why I have put together this list of great websites for you to consult for some great advice, tips and tools for your travel nursing fitness:

I understand that you are reading and/or commenting on this blog purely for informational purposes and I want you to enjoy that experience My job is to help you meet your career goals by sharing information, advice and the benefits of travel nursing with you.

    This is so true, especially with the different hours you may be working at each new destination. One of the wonderful things about being a travel nurse is seeing new places. When you travel to new jobs, try to find the local parks whether they are state, city or national. You will have an opportunity for some great exercise and be able to see some of the sights of your new city.
