596 The Trials and Tribulations of a Travel Nurse – Cameron Totman


Travel nursing is a unique career which involves on average a 13-week assignment. Cameron Totman, a veteran in this field, shares his experiences in this show.

Although a nurse generally completes an assignment and moves on, sometimes they like either the hospital or the geographical environment and wants to stay there. This can provide new opportunities for employment and growth.

Because travel nurses must have at least two years’ experience in nursing, they receive brief training at the particular hospital. Cameron emphasizes that this can be very challenging. You can be floated from floor to floor and have to learn the unique conditions of each. You also  must get up to speed quickly about the particular needs of individual patients. In addition, you may be overworked. This rapid need to transition can, unfortunately, provide the potential for medical errors.

Cameron provides a fascinating overview of how travel nursing has changed from the pre-Covid and Covid environments to conditions during the post-Covid world.
