FAQ About Travel Nursing Jobs

  • Do you provide traveling nurses with housing while on assignment?
    Yes, we do! We are aligned with a corporate housing broker that can arrange all sorts of housing for our travelers, including customizable furniture, housewares, and electronics options. Their focus is on healthcare travelers, and they have been in this business for more than 20 years. We will never profit on your housing, so you get the cheapest rates possible. Electing to use our housing will not affect your hourly or overtime rates, as the cost of housing is passed directly on to you as a weekly cost after your pay rate. For access to our available housing, create a login to get started. We also have a program for access to discounted hotels for travelers.
  • I want to increase my marketability by getting certified in my specialty. Can you reimburse me for my specialty exam (ex. CMSRN, CEN, CCRN…)?
    Absolutely! At Mynela Staffing, we are huge proponents of specialty certification. We will also reimburse you for your BLS, ACLS, PALS, and the like.
  • Will you reimburse me for the license I am applying for to get my next travel nursing job?
    Yes. Please submit the receipt and it will be reimbursed on your first paycheck.
  • Do you offer any kind of bonuses?
    Yes we offer extension bonuses! Extension bonuses are paid for extending a 13-week contract at the same facility for another 13 weeks.
  • How Long is a Typical Travel Nursing Assignment?
    In the United States, the typical travel nursing assignment is thirteen weeks, but anything between eight and twenty-six weeks is common. Hospitals often offer to renew your contract, too, which is called an extension assignment. Extension offers are usually made in the last 3 to 5 weeks of your assignment, but if you’re interested in staying on longer, you should reach out to your recruiter.
  • How does the pay work?
    You will be paid a taxable hourly rate and then given a tax-free stipend for food and housing. Pay packages will always look different depending on the area you are working.
  • What Type of Travel Nursing Jobs Makes the most Money?
    Typically, the most in-demand travel nursing jobs are those that require highly specialized training, knowledge, and experience. This includes positions in the Cardiac Cath Lab, ICUs, Emergency Rooms, and Operating Rooms.
  • How Do Travel Nurses Get Licensed?
    A big concern for many nurses when considering a career in travel nursing is how to gain multi-state licensure. The Nurse Licensure Compact allows nurses to be able to travel from state to state without having to pay to obtain temporary or permanent licenses.
  • What are gap hours?
    Gap time is essentially the hours between non-exempt employees' regular work hours and the 40 hours that employees have to work before they are entitled to overtime pay — or time-and-a-half their regular pay rates. When employees are on the schedule to work for 40 hours a week, no gap time exists.
