A Day in the Life of an ICU Travel Nurse

ICU travel nurses perform the same duties as staff ICU nurses. ICU travel nurse jobs (sometimes known as critical care nurse jobs) involve working with patients with life-threatening conditions that require careful assessment, monitoring and potential emergency intervention. The good news is, you can bring those life saving skills to facilities in need all over the country! Fancy living in a ski town all winter and boating on a lake all summer? Or is big city life for you, no matter the season? Whatever you prefer, we have an ICU travel nurse job (and another … and another… and another…) for you.
