Be social on your travel nursing assignment

You got into Travel Nursing for a reason. Get out there and explore!

Here are some tips on how to make the most of your new assignment, wherever you may be.


It's good to build relationships with your new co-workers. You never know which relationships can help you in the future, which can help boost your references and resume. Gaining new friends will also help you to adjust faster to your new position. Who knows, you may find a life-long friend.


A typical nurse schedule is 3 days on, 4 days off. That means you have four days each week to explore your new city! Scope out all the tourist spots and ask locals where to go. Other great resources are City Search, Trip Advisor, and for good eats, Urban Spoon. Be optimistic, you'll never know what you'll find.

Keep in Touch!

Being on the road can sometimes be lonely and cause homesickness. That's why it's important to regularly keep in contact with your loved ones. Phones are still a great way to communicate, but soical media has also made staying connected with your friends and family easier than ever before. For example, Facebook, Skype and Google Voice are all free and easy to use. 

Be Positive!

Even if you absolutely hate your new assignment, know that it is a temporary job. Stay positive, and remember your attitude reflects the care you give your patients.
