Omaha, NE, (May 15, 2012) – If you're thinking about becoming a travel nurse, this is great news.

Simply consider these four words that describe travel nurses and see if you think they may be able to describe you as well.

1. Adventurous – Even if you're a hometown guy or girl the thought of going all over the country, seeing new places and meeting new people may excite you. Therefore,  working as a travel nurse might be the perfect vocation. You'll be exposed to all different types of cultures and backgrounds when traveling the country, and it's interesting to see contrasting cultures in places like Chicago, Illinois versus Charleston, South Carolina. If you're adventurous, you should certainly consider travel nursing.

2. Caring – It's an amazing feeling to know you have helped care for patients from all walks of life and have been a source of guidance when people needed it the most. If you've worked as a regular nurse for years, you certainly know what it means to be a caregiver, but that may have a whole new meaning to you after meeting a diverse array of people while on travel nursing assignments.
