Two Best Friends Working at CHS: Benefits of Travel Nursing, Allied Health Professionals – Successful Staffing Referral Program
Travel nursing was in high demand throughout the majority of the pandemic. During this period, travel nursing became so lucrative many nurses left full-time healthcare positions to become travel nurses. By the end of December 2021, travel-nurse pay average rates were close to $4,000 per week.
Since that peak, travel nursing salaries have stabilized, but experts expect temporary nursing contracts will continue to account for a significant portion of the healthcare labor workforce.
For nurses considering travel nursing and allied health professionals seeking the right healthcare fit, understanding the complete picture of what’s involved is critical. Making the proper healthcare recruitment agency selection is paramount to having a good experience and maintaining longevity.
