Video: Why It’s Great to be a Travel Nurse

Princess ContyPrincess Conty met her husband, Jason, in nursing school and loved their home in Virginia and her job at a hospital there. After a few years, though, she and Jason decided it was time for a change.

“My husband and I decided to start traveling because our full-time jobs in our hospital were starting to get too much for us. We were getting burned out. We were forced to work overtime all the time,” Princess recalls. “It just got to a point where we said, ‘You know what? We don’t have to stay here. We have the experience. We can travel and see the world.’ And that’s something we’ve always wanted to do.”

Currently on her first assignment with RNnetwork in Florida, Princess is excited about the opportunities ahead.

“We’re going to Nashville, Tenn., next because we’ve never been there. We know it’s the country capital of the world, and we’re excited to see what’s there,” she says. “We don’t have to stay in one place for a long time. I think that’s always good if you’re trying to feel your way around the world.”
