Your pay might be influenced by a variety of things. Finally, the speciality, location, and perks you select will have an impact on the amount of money you earn. If you want to maximize your compensation, you should be aware that in-demand specializations pay more, and that different regions of the country pay differently. A travel L&D nurse in New York, for example, will earn less than a travel med surg nurse in Texas. For the same reasons, remuneration for associated professionals varies greatly. Travel clinicians are generally compensated more handsomely than their staff counterparts. Because many travel nurses and associated professionals move between locations and, in some cases, specialties, their pay will vary from assignment to assignment.
