Emergency Room Travel Nurses
Emergency room (ER) nurses are often the very first point of contact a patient has when they enter a hospital. ER travel nurses are the ones who are responsible for quickly assessing a patient’s condition or injuries upon arrival to the emergency department (ED) of a hospital. In order to be successful, an emergency room travel nurse must pay extreme attention to detail and excel in communication with patients, family, doctors, and co-workers.
The ER nurse must be able to identify and triage a patient’s signs and symptoms and effectively communicate this information to the attending physician in a timely manner in order to get the patient the appropriate help they need. Furthermore, emergency room nurses assist in the implementation of treatment plans, IV administration, injections, medications, educating patients on prescription information, and helping with EKGs and other triage procedures.
Emergency room travel nurses need to be able to learn the ropes fast, as they must understand the specific discharge procedures of a hospital and the government policies that regulate the transferring, treating, and discharging of patients from the facility. In addition, ED nurses also need to be wonderful educators, as they are the ones who must teach patients and patients’ family members about the treatment at home after they leave the hospital. If you are a registered nurse who has a calm temperament and can work long shifts in a busy environment under stressful conditions - then working as an emergency room travel nurse might be suited for you.
Job Skills / Requirements:
- ER experience in a hospital setting
- Proof of right to work in the United States
- A valid professional license within the state of practice
- Valid BLS, ACLS, and PALS from the American Heart Association
- The Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC) credential is recommended and may be required for specific travel nurse positions
- Other specialty-related certifications are preferred and may be required for specific Emergency Room assignments
ER Travel Nurse Salary and Job Outlook
Acute-care facilities across the United States always have a high demand for experienced ED nurses. Travel nurses working in emergency rooms receive higher pay than the staff nurses do, but the exact amount a traveling ER nurse makes will depend on the precise geographic location, experience level, job requirements of the facility, and if the nurse has other certifications.
If an emergency room travel nurse wants to supplement their compensation, this role within a hospital often has the possibility of overtime hours and additional shifts.

Travel Nursing Jobs in Wyoming
If you're feeling a little world-weary and wondering where to go for your next travel healthcare job, Wyoming could be exactly what you need. The Wyoming cities of Cheyenne and Casper consistently rank among the highest in terms of clean air. Travel nursing jobs in Wyoming can be found in the aforementioned cities or the uncrowded towns across the Cowboy State. No matter where you land, you will have the peace and the space you need to breathe deeply and become restored.
The epic beauty of Yellowstone National Park and Grant Teton National Park provide amazing experiences for travel nurses in Wyoming. Yellowstone is famously home to Old Faithful and other geysers, but don't forget Grand Teton National Park and it's gorgeous Mormon Row and the Moulton Barns. These national parks can be visited year-round, even when the mountains are snow-covered, and roads are closed. With a little extra planning, you can visit Yellowstone in a snowcoach, or on a snowmobile. Grand Teton can still be explored by doing a ranger-led snowshoe excursion.
In the summer months, Wyoming travel nurses get their cowboy boots on and get in the cowboy spirit by getting into the state sport of rodeo. Across the state, starting in May and finishing in August, the towns host rodeos. Jackson Hole has rodeos three nights a week throughout the season, while the town of Cody takes its title as the "Rodeo Capital of the World" very seriously and has rodeos nightly through the season.
Your taste buds will be tickled while tasting the delicious foods and beverages that Wyoming has to offer. Finding bison and locally sourced ingredients on menus is pretty typical.
