Apples to Apples?


When it comes to comparing travel nursing companies you want to make sure the reviews are fair and that you are comparing apples to apples. There are several great options online for reviewing traveling nurse agencies. There are a few simple and basic things you want to look for in a great travel nursing company review. Without these items you should be concerned about the validity of the reviews on that site. Obviously the more in depth the review and the more info it gives you the better, but here are what the basic ones should include:

Completion bonus
Referral bonus
Free health
Insurance life insurance
Travel reimbursement
Free private housing
License reimbursement

The best travel nursing comparison websites not only offer you information to make your travel nursing decision, but they also allow you to join the conversation and rate travel nursing companies you have worked with.

Here is a list of websites I have found that offer a travel nursing company comparison:

Highway Hypodermics

    There are very few travel companies that offer free health insurance. And…housing is NEVER free. When you hear free housing it just means that they are paying you a lower rate than they would pay if you didnt need the housing. All travel agencie are for profit and no profit would be made if they paid for your housing, its common sense.

    That is a great point Melissa. I referred to them that way because that is the standard travel nurse industry terminology. But you are right “free” benefits are a bit of a misnomer.
