About Travel Nursing

Discover an exciting new career path.

There is a well-documented nursing shortage in our country, and travel nurses help healthcare facilities fill staffing gaps for specific periods of time. These facilities may lack nurses because of geographic location, an expected leave of absence by a key staff member, seasonal fluctuations or lack of access to skilled nurses.

MedWave places nurses in facilities across 48 states for anywhere from 3 to 13 weeks. If you are looking for new challenges, it’s time to ride the travel nursing wave.
