Critical Care (CCU and ICU) Travel Nurses
Critical care unit (CCU) and Intensive care unit (ICU) travel nurses are nurses who have specialized skills in providing care to patients who are in critical condition. CCU and ICU nurses work in various departments, including post-op units, intensive care units, burn units, and other specialized areas within hospitals that provide critical care.
Most positions for ICU travel nurses are found in the hospital setting. Nurses who work in ICU can also choose subspecialties, such as Medical ICU, Cardiovascular ICU, Burn ICU, Surgical ICU, Neuro ICU, and others. Throughout the United States, there are also rehabilitation facilities that employ critical care nurses because they have extensive experience with tracheostomy tubes and ventilators.
Successful critical care nurses excel in communication as they are responsible for providing education and support to patients and family members. CCU nurse traveling positions are available throughout the United States at many great locations that offer competitive pay rates and full benefits packages, which can bring compensation for this type of position to more than six figures annually.
Critical care travel nursing assignments are typically 13-weeks in length and there is often the option to extend the contract. Travel nursing life also allows nurses to have extra downtime, in which they can enjoy the private housing that is included in the full-length travel nursing assignments for critical care nurses.

Travel Nursing Jobs in Hawaii

Travel nurses in Hawaii have the best of two worlds. World one: employment, security, pay, and benefits. World two: They’re already in Hawaii! On days off as a Hawaii travel nurse, you can explore an active volcano, surf, scuba dive, swim with dolphins, go windsurfing, or take part in a number of exciting activities in Hawaii.
Get a snorkel and explore the coral reefs on Oahu, following fishes and being tickled by underwater sea plants, or do a night snorkeling tour to watch the manta rays swimming at sunset. Take classes and get into scuba diving, going deeper into the underwater world.
Cliff jumping is a popular activity for travelers in Hawaii. It was once very culturally significant. King Kahekili would challenge his warriors to jump at Puu Kekaa. Puu Kekaa was believed to be a portal to another realm, where the spirits of the dead jump into the afterworld. Now, the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa has a cliff dive ceremony at this spot every evening at sunset. If you prefer to keep your feet more grounded, go hiking through the island jungles or the famous Kalalau Trail that is notoriously treacherous but epically beautiful. In the winter months, whale watching will inspire you. Do a hop-on hop-off tour on a double decker bus to explore Honolulu and its surroundings. For history buffs, you can spend a day exploring Pearl Harbor.
