The most successful travelers are those who can embrace adventure, go with the flow, and forge relationships with people they meet along the way. Making the leap to become a traveler takes a ton of guts and an absolute faith in your skills, but the rewards are plentiful.

We share stories about our nurse and allied travelers to provide a glimpse into the unique lifestyle. Like everything, the experience of being a traveler is whatever you make of it. 

 

FlexCare Travel Nurse Finds His True Calling

The life of a travel nurse is nomadic, to say the least, but it's also very busy, so when we get the opportunity to hear directly from one of our nurses, we love to pass along their wisdom to our community.

Ryan is currently on assignment in the Northern California town of Fort Bragg - an ideal setting for a new traveler. If you're considering a career as a travel nurse, read Ryan's story and find how he makes it work and what he believes is essential to embrace as a traveler.

What we discovered about this exceptional family of five is that a healthy sense of adventure and shared experiences more than make up for the lack of “stuff” that most of us accumulate. In addition, traveling with the kiddos is much easier now that most states offer K-12 classes online.
