What is travel nursing?

It’s your chance to get paid to see the country, hone your clinical skills, advance your career and make a difference. If that sounds good to you, it’s time to give travel nursing with Aya Healthcare a try!

As a travel nurse, you can choose your own adventure. Do glittering city lights call your name? Then head anywhere from The Big Apple to The Big Easy! Are you more of a nature guy or gal? Maybe whitewater rafting down the Colorado River or hiking through the Redwoods of Big Sur are for you. And if relaxation is the name of your travel game, then grab your flip-flops and kick back on the white sands of a Miami beach.

Traveling with a family or pet? Want to work at top facilities? Need some advice from people who've been there? Hear directly from Aya travelers.

Healthcare facilities rely on Aya to provide travel nurses.

A hospital near a ski resort may need travel nurses to help during their busy season. Another facility might implement a new computer charting system and need travel nurses to handle their patient load while staff members train. Or, a staff nurse could go on maternity leave and need a traveler to cover.

Whatever the reason, healthcare facilities across the USA are always looking for travelers. When you're with Aya, you'll get an account to browse open jobs — including pay packages — nationwide. When you're with us, the entire country is your playground, your inspiration, your home.
