New York as a Travel Nurse

There’s so much to love about the state of New York. While you might immediately think of Broadway, Central Park, and the Statue of Liberty in New York City, that’s only one of the many cities and towns worth visiting.

In locations across the state, you’ll find diverse populations to serve, giving you an expanded worldview and unique experiences you can’t get anywhere else. From Albany to Ithaca and Buffalo to Rochester, there are many destinations to settle in as a traveler.

If you’re looking for the charm of a smaller town, travel nursing in Upstate NY might be a better fit. Lake Placid or Cooperstown are attractive destinations to many. They’re where you’ll forge lasting relationships and move forward in your career, all while making an impact on the patients you serve.

Travel Nursing Pay

Better Pay for Doing What You Love

When looking at finances, it’s a good idea to keep in mind the cost of living when you set salary expectations. The cost of living in Upstate New York is considerably cheaper than in NYC: Albany is 19 percent lower than the state average, but five percent higher than the national average. And good news for travel nurses: the average salary in New York is 12 percent higher than the U.S. average.

It's always a good idea to consider the cost of living when assessing pay rates. Sometimes your motivation to travel might be to put more money in your pocket, but other times the New York experience might outweigh cost savings!
