Travel Nurse Pay, Benefits, and Perks

How much does a travel nurse make? This is one of the great perks of becoming a travel nurse!

Travel nurses tend to make more than staff nurses, as they’re filling staffing gaps during times of need. Pay depends on many different factors, like the location, your specialty, and how high the demand is for staffing. However, in most cases travel nurses are going to make much more than a full-time staff nurse.

The perks go way beyond the paycheck, though.

In addition to high paying contracts for travel nurses, there are also a ton of great benefits. For example, free accommodations or housing stipends to pay for where you live while you’re on assignment. Housing through our agency is fully furnished and private and typically close to the facility where you’re working to make things simple and easy. Our non-taxed housing stipends at AHS NurseStat are also quite generous if you’d rather have the freedom and flexibility to find your own housing.

We also offer licensure and credentials reimbursements for our nurses. When you need to get licenses in a certain state for an assignment or do other certifications, we reimburse you the costs. Many travel nurse agencies don’t offer this great benefit, but we think it’s important! We care about helping you achieve your career goals and visiting the destinations you’ve always wanted to!

Some other benefits include:

  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance for only $15 a week
  • 401K savings program with matching
  • Professional liability/malpractice coverage
