Travel Nurse Pay and Benefits

Everything you need to get started on your next travel contract. Learn more about our pay and benefits package.

How much can I make as a Travel Nurse?

The average salary of a travel nurse greatly varies depending on different factors. Your specialty, location, and experience are all factors that can affect your paycheck. For example, the pay for an ICU nurse in California will differ from an ICU nurse in Iowa. The pay can even vary for an ICU nurse and an L&D nurse in the same state. While there is no “average” salary for what a travel nurse can make, travel healthcare professionals still receive premium pay for their positions and are paid more than your typical staff nurse.


While you may not be able to change your specialty, being flexible on location will allow you to chase the highest rates available to you. You can view our available positions and pay rates right in your LEAP Portal.

Lauren RN

My recruiter is very helpful. The relationship she builds is meaningful. She checks in regularly to make sure all is well and if there’s anything she can do for me. My last company I only heard from my recruiter when it was time to look for another assignment or extend.
