Freelance Article #2 How Nursing Pushed Me To Depression And How Travel Pulled Me Out 

Being a nurse has been a great career. It has offered me many opportunities to travel the US and the world.  But it wasn’t as glorious a career as I had imagined.  Click the link below to find out how traveling saved me from myself.

Leah has been a traveling operating room nurse for 5 years.  She enjoys exploring her assignment destination and even takes trips internationally in between contracts.  Her dog, Dakota, joins her on the road and is happy to hike a mountain, swim in the ocean, or just stick her head out the window for the ride.

  1. I’ve never been a travel nurse, but I have definitely known the experience of living for that trip. When I first started in the ICU I struggled badly.
