Highlights from the Survey:

The majority of travelers (74%) said burnout influenced their decision to become travelers either “a great deal,” “a lot” or “a moderate amount,” while only 26% said burnout had little or no influence on their decision.
  • The majority of allied healthcare professional travelers (70%) said that working as a traveler is more satisfying than working in a permanent position.
  • The majority of allied healthcare professionals (81%) said that their morale when working as a traveler is very high or somewhat high.
  • Allied healthcare professionals rated “freedom and flexibility” as the number one benefit of working as a traveler.
