Lately, several of my nurse friends have decided to move to Costa Rica and take up jobs as travel nurses which at first was a bit mind baffling.
I mean, why would anyone want to live in Central America and have to fly back to the US for work every month or so?
So I decided to do a bit of digging about what Costa Rica is all about and I was very surprised by my findings. First, real estate Costa Rica is very cheap compared to the US so I can see why moving there would have its appeal.
Second, the cost of living is even better as Americans can live quite well there for as little as $1,000 per month thanks to the many Costa Rica descuentos available.
And third, as a travel nurse, they can just work 6 months out of the year in the US (in no particular order) and live the remaining 6 months in a tropical country.
So fi any nurse is thinking about going into the travel nursing industry, they should definitively consider international travel nursing.
