Re: Did you become a nurse in order to travel?
I am always interested to find out why one pursues a career in nursing. I for one love interacting with the people and ultimately making them better. But being a travel nurse is a great way to get to see our country and wonder how many people became a nurse in order to travel. Believe me I don't blame you I would be doing it if I wasn't ready to settle down and start a family.
NO I DID'NT, BUT TRAVEL NURSING IS THE GREATEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD!! FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS WE HAVE LIVED COAST TO COAST IN PLACES THAT WE WOULD OTHERWISE NOT BE, BECAUSE OF THE COST, SURE YOU GIVE UP SOME THINGS,THE BIG ONE IS MISSING FAMILY, BUT WE GO SEE THEM EVERY 3 TO 6 MONTHS AND VISIT FOR A COUPLE WEEKS AND THEN WE ARE BACK ON THE ROAD,WITH MOST EXPENCES PAID BY THE TRAVEL COMPANY, THEN WE WRITE OF THE REST. WHAT A TAX BENNY TOO!! WE HAVE BEEN WRITTING ABOUT ARE EXPERIANCE WITH THIS FOR OVER 4 YEARS, A BOOK IN PROGRESS. SURE YOU HAVE YOUR UP'S AND DOWN'S, BUT WHO DOESN'T, AND BESIDES IF YOUR GONNA BE DOWN, IT'S A WHOLE LOT BETTER TO BE DOWN ON THE BEACH IN HAWAII, THAN BACK IN KANSAS
TRY WALKING ACROSS THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE IN SAN-FRAN IT WILL PICK ANYONE UP OR WATCHING THE NORTHAN LIGHTS IN ALASKA. LIFE SURE IS SWEET/ GOOD
