Ask A Travel Nurse: Travel Nurse Pay?

Travel Nurse OrientationGypsy,
What is the average Travel Nurse Pay ?

Anonymous, RN



Thank you for reading The Gypsy Nurse. You have taken the first step on your journey to become A Gypsy Nurse.

Travel Nurses work in a variety of settings and specialties.  Generally (if you take out the provided housing perk), travel nurses make just a little more than staff nurses.  It’s impossible to state a pay rate because there are many factors the go into the determination of pay.  Location, need, specialty, etc.

There are some ‘travel’ specialties that do make a significant amount more than staff nurses and those are Rapid Response and Strike nurses.  These can make up to double or triple what a standard staff position will pay.

One of the downsides is that you are away from home (family/friends), no paid time off (sick/vacation), and a lot of companies that do Travel Nurse staffing do not provide healthcare benefits.

Travel ON…..

I hope that this has addressed your question.
