Registered nurses often choose travel nursing because of the attractive compensation and ability to travel across the nation. Travel nurses also can get experience in different specialties, which will make them more marketable when settling into a permanent position.

General pay rate. Typically, travel nurses who are registered nurses earn up to $40 per hour. However, these wages may be higher or lower depending on the geographic location of the position.

Sign-on Bonuses. Some companies will offer sign-on or completion bonuses to travel nurses. Make sure to partner with a travel nurse agency like Clinical One that can help you find these types of positions.
