August 20, 2010, Newsletter Issue #61: Travel Nursing Benefits and Perks

Tip of the Week

Travel nursing jobs come with many benefits, but you’ll need to negotiate these items into your compensation package. Read on to learn about negotiable perks such as medical, life insurance, travel reimbursement and housing.

Ask about medical and life insurance. Even if your contract is only a few months, these benefits can often be negotiated. If you’re working with a travel nurse agency like Clinical One, ask them about employers who negotiate these benefits.

Tax-Free Travel Reimbursement. Depending on how far you’ll be traveling to your assignment, experience can get costly. Make sure to set up a travel reimbursement plan that is tax accountable, which means you won’t have to pay taxes on this reimbursement.

Rent-free housing. One of the best perks of being a travel nurse is housing is often free. These accommodations are often close to your work location and facilitated by the employer.
