Travel nursing is an exciting career, affording experienced RNs the chance to see the country while helping those in need. As thrilled as you may be to arrive at your new travel assignment, the challenge of moving your life and belongings from point A to point B can be seriously stressful. An expert in healthcare staffing, Remede offers advice and suggestions for travel nurses preparing for a big move. Follow the tips below to help make your next travel nursing experience a little less frustrating and a lot more fun:

Show Up Early

Wanna cut down on stress for your next travel nursing post? Consider arriving a few  days early. Not only can you use this time to settle into your new apartment, but you can also get to know the area where you’ll be living for the next few months. Additionally, you can start work knowing that the utilities and cable are already hooked up.

Ask About Accommodations

Packing for a big move is always stressful. Before you start stuffing your suitcases, take the time to find out if your apartment will be furnished and if your housing package includes housewares. After all, there’s no need to ship your bedding and towels if they are included.

Institute a Packing System

Looking to take the stress out of your next travel nursing gig? Institute a packing system that makes good use of labels. By organizing your items by the room in which they belong, you can both simplify the unpacking process and make it easier to pick up and pack again for your next post.

Bring Something Personal

Living away from home for a month or more can be a lonely prospect. One way to make your next travel assignment more pleasant is to bring something special from home. From a favorite afghan to a beloved stuffed animal, even little touches can have a big impact on your new living space.
