Tips for travel nurses from "Work Shifters"


Travel nursing is actually two words, even though I type it so often it feels like one, and  the professional challenges of being a nurse at a new facility every 3-6 months is just half of the challenge of being a travel nurse. The other challenge, that although can be exciting and fun, is the travel part. The one the takes you away from your comfortable surroundings of home, friends and family. 

That’s why I wanted to share a site that could offer you some help to make some of your travel challenges a little easier. is a site geared more toward remote office workers who travel and work out of places like coffee shops, hotels, airports and  their homes, but it is full of great resources and articles that I think travel nurses (especially if you are a blogger or into social media yourself) could really use too.

As I dug through the site I saw a lot of potential for taking their advice about staying in contact with their companies and staff and applying it to staying in touch with your family and friends. One of the disadvantages of being a travel nurse is the disconnect from home, but by following some of their advice you could stay almost as connected as if you were home.

Take a look at let me know what you think.
