March 2024 Travel Healthcare Market Trends

Hello from rural Hawaii. As St. Patrick's Day approaches, I'm crossing my fingers for some good fortune to come our way in the form of exciting new travel assignments. I’m embracing the spirit of luck and keeping my eyes peeled for upcoming opportunities to help you claim your pot of gold. 😜

What's happening in the market?


  • We’ve seen the market getting a little tighter with some specialties getting a bit more difficult to fill.

  • Demand for nurses is still high – it’s only a matter of time before more positions will come available.

  • Average RN Rates for 36 hours a week we're seeing continue to stay in the $1700-$2300 range with 48 hours making upwards of $3200 depending on specialty. There are of course outliers but these are typical.

  • PCU, Medsurg, and Telemetry are still the most in demand and in some cases, highest paying, RN postions.

  • Toughest Specialties continue to be: Peds, NICU/PICU, Postpartum

  • Still seeing more OR and ER opening up

  • Currently seeing start dates through the end of April.
