The many benefits of becoming a travel nurse.

  • Short term assignments allow you to experience different work locations, processes, medical technologies, and tools.
  • Travel opportunities allow you to get to know new neighborhoods and people, and the chance to travel and explore even on your off days.
  • The variety of experience is great for building your resume. Travel nurses have a reputation for being flexible, adaptable, and able to manage uncertainty and high-pressure situations. These skills are highly valued on any resume and will help you plan for major growth in your career.
  • New experiences and people keep life interesting and exciting.

This is a monthly payment meant to cover your health insurance and is available at the start of your first assignment with no waiting period. We have selected an HRA so you can maintain consistent healthcare coverage without having to change insurance, your Primary Care Physician (PCP), preferred pharmacy and any other healthcare services and providers you have currently. As you start and finish travel nurse assignments or shift to other travel nurse agencies, we do not want you to have to worry about changing all your healthcare every time.
  • You are automatically enrolled in our 401K program from day one (although you are free to opt out!), and we match up to 5% of your contributions.
  • One week of paid vacation upon completion of three assignments in a year.
  • Travel reimbursement to help you get to the job site. The details will differ with each assignment.
  • Referral bonuses when you recommend your fellow nurses who end up taking an assignment with HPHC.
  • Help and guidance with credentials and screenings.
  • In addition, each assignment will have expense reimbursements which may include a housing allowance, a per diem amount to cover meals and local transportation, shift and overtime differentials. Some assignments also include completion bonuses. You will always know what these are before you accept any assignment.

In case you are completely new to travel nursing.

A travel nurse is a professional nurse who takes a limited term assignment at a medical service facility away from their home. It compares with temporary jobs or “temping” in other fields and includes being in a location too far away from home to commute. Travel nurses stay in short-term housing near the work assignment. A travel nurse does commit, when they take the assignment, to work through the completion of the assignment, delivering the best and most professional care and to follow the processes, rules, and standards of the host medical facility.

In general, you need to work as a professional nurse for at least one year before being eligible for travel nursing assignments. Some medical facilities have additional requirements, particularly for some nursing specialties.

Each opportunity will have different requirements, pay rates, and expense allowances. We include as much of that information as possible in the postings, so you can evaluate your choices effectively.

In general, you need to work as a professional nurse for at least one year before being eligible for travel nursing assignments. Some medical facilities have additional requirements, particularly for some nursing specialties.

You can travel with your family and your pets. Lots of travel nurses do. We will help you find housing that welcomes all your traveling companions.

When you finish your assignment, you are encouraged to find another assignment with High Peak Healthcare. If you choose not to, you can always come back and work with us again in the future.


The general steps to becoming a travel nurse are:

  1. Complete the registration form found when you click HERE.
