Home Health Travel Nurses
Travel nurses working in home health can find jobs across the country in a variety of climates, and town/city sizes. This is a great specialty for you travel nurses who want to see lots of different places across our great nation because there is no shortage of job opportunities.
The baby boomer population is aging and requiring more healthcare. That combined with the increased emphasis in shortened hospital stays and focus on preventative care, home health as a specialty is blossoming into a lucrative and satisfying niche.
Home health travel RNs work with patients who live in their own homes yet require medical care of some kind and varied amounts of help with their activities of daily living. Typical tasks for a home health registered nurse may include:
- Assistance with the medication regimen of the patient
- Assistance with bathing of the patient
- Assistance with grooming of the patient
- Assistance with mobility of the patient
- Assistance with other daily tasks of the patient
- Meticulous documentation of vital signs, bladder and bowel functions of the patient
- Meticulous documentation of rehabilitation progress of the patient
- Providing wound care to the patient
- Providing massages to the patient
- Assisting/providing maintenance of a prosthetic limb of the patient
As you can see after reading the list, the work of a home health nurse is exactly that. Work. However, the setting for home health travel nurses may be considered less high stress than that of a nurse who works in an emergency room. The work of a home health nurse is extremely important, but because the work focuses on the patient, in their own home, home health nurses can build a rapport with their patients and a develop a positive working relationship.
Home health travel nurses may also find that in addition to building a relationship with their patient, they build a rapport with their patients' family members or neighbors as well. The life of a travel nurse can feel lonely at times, but as a home health travel nurse building rapport and connections with their patients and families can be very satisfying.

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.
