Are There Inequitable Influences of the Pandemic on Career Pathways of Travel Nurses?


Description:

During the pandemic, thousands of registered nurses (RNs) became travel nurses for the first time, yet little is known about which RNs took on these roles and how these experiences may be influencing their career pathways. This study will examine the work experiences of travel nurses and their post-pandemic career decisions (including setting and geographic location of work), and whether responses vary by gender and race/ethnicity.
