Wellness on the Go – Tips for Travelers

Stay connected! Being away from home can be challenging. While on assignment, don’t forget to take care of yourself, too!

Try purposefully carving out time to stay connected and make new connections. Here are just a few ideas for inspiration:

  1. Join a local group: Check out opportunities available in the city you’re working in. This is a great way to meet new people who share your interests and have fun in your free time.
  2. Social media: Connect with other travel nurses and healthcare professionals through social media groups and pages. Facebook and LinkedIn have groups specifically for travel nurses, which can help you connect with other professionals in the industry. Don’t be afraid to reach out to fellow travel nurses in the area to form a support network!
  3. Volunteer: Volunteering can help you feel more connected to a community and meet new people.
  4. Stay in touch: Even though you may be far from home, staying in touch with family and friends can help you feel connected and supported. Schedule regular phone calls, video chats, and check-ins.
  5. Take advantage of travel: Explore your new area, try new things, and connect with new people. People love to share what’s great about their cities—ask for some recommendations from the local team to get started!
