Travel nursing is a good thing as long as you are flexible and a quick learner. Most places expect you to know in 2 days what normal staff learn in a week. I have worked in the US and Canada and am now working in Australia. I work for a great Private surgery center that does awesome work and is interested in hiring more travellers like me as there is a great shortage of theatre/OR nurses in Newcastle NSW.
If you know of anyone interested, let me know via posting.
Travel nurses need to be friendly, affable and have thick skin as regular employees tend to target us to do most of the work since we get paid the big bucks and free housing (or so they think). A lot of places will try to hire you after your contract if you are good. It is good to start with a short term contract and extend if you like the place. I once started a 6 month session and the staff turned out to be dwads, making me do everything... couldn't get out of there fast enough.
Don't be afraid to try travel nursing... it's one perk of being a nurse.
