Can I Take a Travel Assignment Close to my Home?
Yes. You can accept travel nursing assignments that are close to your home address. However, if you want to collect the tax-free housing stipend, then you have to choose jobs that are typically at least 60 miles away from your home.
Another option for nurses who wish to stay close to home is per diem travel nursing jobs. When you pick up per diem nursing jobs, you agree to a series of shifts at a local hospital or healthcare facility.
