Texas Travel Nursing Jobs Reign Supreme in Lone Star State

High Pay and Low Cost of Living Driving Texas Travel Nursing Job Growth, Say Travel Nurse Staffing Experts 50 States Staffing

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - August 5, 2008) - With Texas hospitals ranking among U.S. News and World Report best hospitals every year and advanced medical technologies in the state laying a foundation for quality travel nurse job work environments, Texas travel nurse jobs have made their way to top of the preferred travel nursing list.

"Quality of life and lifestyle opportunities are a major component of travel nursing," said Robert L. Bok, CEO for The Joint Commission certified 50 States Staffing, the nation's largest independent travel nursing company. "Cities like Austin consistently rank on lists of best places to live, work and play and the cost of living in Dallas, Houston and other Texas communities is below the national average. Annual earnings for Texas travel nursing jobs can exceed $85,000 with pay and benefits."

Travel nurse staffing experts say more and more nurses are considering economic factors, such as cost of living, when choosing a travel nursing destination. Texas is home to one of the largest faith-based, nonprofit healthcare delivery systems in the United States, with travel nurse pay high and the cost of living low, leaving nurses more disposable income to enjoy their surroundings and contribute to their 401(k).

"In addition to free private housing, free continuing education, full health benefits and bonuses, 50 States Staffing provides for a generous, company-matched 401(k), affording nurses a platform for retirement," said Bok. "Between earnings and benefits, Texas travel nursing jobs can pay as much as $90,000 annualized."

"More practitioners entering the profession have been asking about Texas nurse jobs in cities with easy access to the Rio Grande and Mexico," said Deborah Bacurin of 50 States Staffing, adding that "beautiful Gulf Coast towns like Galveston and Corpus Christi are no longer 'best kept secrets' among seasoned travel nurses."

"Texas travel nursing jobs will be hot for a while," says Hospital Marketing Director, Dennis Urbanski. "Healthcare and high-tech are propelling economies around the state and 50 States Staffing's access to top-ranked hospitals and outpatient centers is bar none. The pay is high and the benefits and housing great for Texas travel nurses."
