Oncology Travel Nurse Salary

Earn up to $3,700/week

While they perform the same duties, oncology travel nurses often make higher salaries than full-time oncology nurses. This is because travel nurses fulfill a need, making their skills more in demand and valuable. For example, on-staff or full-time oncology nurses make an average of $76,200 per year, or $1,465 per week, according to Salary.com.,


On the other hand, an oncology travel nurse with AMN Healthcare can make up to $48,100 for a 13-week travel assignment, or between $1,180 and $3,700 per week, depending on experience and location.
