Travel nursing offers unique opportunities to achieve your personal and professional goals. But, the small details associated with a traveling healthcare career can be a bit tedious – and also overwhelming.  To help you find the information and resources you need in your travel nursing career, we’ve compiled a list of helpful online resources.  Have any other suggestions for online resources? Feel free to share them in the comments section!

Where to go?

The following links will help you decide on your next travel nursing destination:

Best Places – Sperling’s Best Places compiled real estate, school, climate, crime, cost of living and other moving factors into one place. Compare between cities, or research your city of choice. The information on this site is sure to help you make your decision.

City Data – City Data covers some of the same information as Best Places, including crime and pricing information, and adds information like local news links, local government information, natural disaster information and more. The City Data forums offer an opportunity for you to ask locals in your areas of interest questions about life in their cities, which could prove helpful as you decide where to pursue your next assignment.

How to move?

It’s universal – physically moving your belongings from one city to another can be a pain. Ease the pain and make moving just a bit easier with these resources:

Moving Center – Compiled by apartments.com, the Moving Center has compiled a wealth of resources into one main page. From auto and renter’s insurance to setting up your utilities, you’ll find a great deal of information here, designed to help you get situated in your new home.
