RV Benefits for Travel Nurses
Travel nursing is a great opportunity for the right person. While the benefits, adventurous lifestyle, and pay are wonderful, there are some pretty big opportunity costs – like living out of a suitcase and not having a place to call home.
If you are considering the travel nurse life but are worried about not having a sense of place, you may want to consider RV living! Here are our top reasons why RV living might be the best way to approach travel nursing.
First and foremost, you can save a lot of money! If you elect to go for the RV, you’ll have your very own kitchen with you 24/7. This means you can cook your own meals and save lots of money on eating out and ordering in. You’ll save across the board on temporary living arrangements – which are usually more expensive than standard leases – your meals, and other various incidentals because you’ll be able to pack everything you’ll need on day one.
Also, in an RV, you don’t have to live out of a suitcase! The constant routine of packing and unpacking can be tiresome and draining. In an RV, you’ll have everything you need on you for the entire duration of your trip. And the best part? You’ll only have to pack and unpack once!
Taking the travel nursing journey from an RV means you’ll also have a lot more freedom to explore. Rental cars are quite expensive, and without your own RV, you might miss out on local attractions that require a car, like a national park, near your temporary location. It also grants the opportunity to see sights in between locations that you otherwise might have missed.
With an RV, you’ll also be able to bring others along for the ride! Family members, pets, and friends in different locations throughout the way, the RV affords you the opportunity to incorporate your loved ones into the journey.
So if you are considering travel nursing, remember that doing so in an RV may make the experience cheaper, easier, and more fun!
