Full-time Travel Nursing in an RV?

Is anyone currently doing this, or have experience doing travel nursing by way of RV?

I am a nurse anesthetist in the DFW area. My husband and I are looking to convert to full-time RVing in a few years, and we'd love to hear the skinny.

People do it successfully. I have read of a few on a Fulltime Families FB group.

We stayed in a COE Campground in Little Rock a few years ago that had specific camp sites reserved for traveling nurses.

We had/have a couple traveling nurses who spend the summer in our seasonal CG in NH.

Travel Nursing

I have been traveling as a nurse since 2002. We have full timed in our 5th Wheel since 2005. I haven't had any problems, just make sure you can find a nice RV park to stay at before you accept a contract.

My sister did it for many years. A lot of it in Wyoming and Montana. Just be sure to get an RV that's designed to full time in. Proper insulation is a must if you work full time in it.

Thanks to all for your replies! Kelly, that's awesome! We do plan to upgrade to a fifth wheel and do the same. Bama, great suggestion.

X2 of KellyT's response. Our 5th year on the road full-timing. Been to 46 states and have experienced things I'd never thought possible. Make sure you have a place to stay before accepting an assignment. Important to save money by getting a monthly rate as opposed to a weekly or daily rate. Good luck,you'll love it. ��

We ran into a couple a year back. She was a travel nurse that made work arrangements at a hospital in Blairsville Ga and was to be there about 5 months. She told us she liked to book work in various climate locations to keep them comfortable. Said they were headed to Arizona to winter there.

We had a lady in the camp site next to us this winter in Florida, and she had been doing it for 8 years. She really Loved it. She had a 42 foot Holiday Rambler, Endeavor and it was setup really nice for traveling and living. She had a home in Georgia for her off time.
Good Luck and enjoy. )
