Travel Nursing with a Family: How Your Staffing Agency Can Help

If you’re considering a career in travel nursing, you may be wondering how it will work with your family. Travel nursing can be a great way to see the country and earn good money while doing it, but it’s not always easy to coordinate with your family’s schedule. That’s where your staffing agency can help. Here are some tips on how to make travel nursing work for you and your family.

  1. Discuss housing options: Most travel nursing assignments will come with some form of housing assistance, such as a free apartment or discounted hotel rates. Talk to your staffing agency about these options and make sure they understand your family’s needs. If you need separate sleeping areas for each person in the family, let them know.
  2. Discuss transportation options: If you’re traveling with your family, you’ll need to arrange transportation. Talk to your staffing agency about rental cars or other transport options that are available in the area where you’ll be working.
  3. Make sure childcare is accessible: If you have children, make sure there’s access to childcare services in the area where you’ll be working. Ask your staffing agency if they know of any local daycare or after-school care providers that you can use.
  4. Research the area: Before you commit to a travel nursing assignment, make sure you do some research on the area. Talk to other healthcare professionals who have been to the area and read up on the local attractions. This will help you make sure the area is a good fit for your family.

Travel nursing can be an exciting and rewarding experience, but it’s important to think carefully about how it will affect your family before committing to a job. Total Nurses Network can help you make informed decisions and find suitable housing and transportation options in the area where you’ll be working. With the right planning and support, travel nursing with a family can be an amazing experience.
