Travel Versus Per Diem: Comparing Nursing Job Types

If you answer ‘yes’ to two or more items in a group, you might have found the fit for you.


  • Do you love to travel and explore new places?
  • Do you like having guaranteed hours, within a contract? On average — 13 weeks in one location.
  • Is the location of the hospital more important than which hospital?
  • Is job security more important than money?


  • Are you looking for more hours and like where you live?
  • Do you prefer to be more flexible with your work hours and enjoy choosing hours that fit your lifestyle?
  • It is more important to choose the hospital or office you want to work in, rather than the location?
  • Is the pay more important than job security?


If you choose two or more in one of these groups, you may found your answer to your next position. Ready to roll? Or still not sure? A Remede recruiter can help you take the next step or weigh the pros and cons.
