Don't Burn Out. Burn Bright.

Your anti-burnout game plan is waiting. Let's go!

A good work-life balance doesn't come easy for nurses working the floor day in & day out. Travel nursing can change that.

For most nurses, the big "you've finally made it" moment comes when you've land your first full-time line at a hospital.

But after that, life may begin to drone on. The same line, in the same under-staffed unit, with little flexibility, and don't even get you started on vacation requests... It's the perfect recipe for burnout.

Travel nursing changes the game. Say goodbye to burnout and hello to fresh opportunities in new places, with exceptional pay, and a schedule you can custom build!

Why choose Northern med?

I’ve fallen back in love with nursing, life, and myself!

"Travel nursing has changed my life. I too was burnt out. I love nursing, but sometimes a change in scenery, exceptional wages, amazing staff and travel nurses really make the difference. I’ve fallen back in love with nursing, life, and myself. I’ve met lifelong best friends all over Canada; fellow travel nurses and staff nurses. I’m in a community that lifts you up, supports you, and encourages you to reach your dreams. NMC is founded by nurses, made for nurses and encourages you to step outside your comfort zone and soar. I strongly recommend NMC! I’ve had the opportunity to nurse all over Canada, and worked in surgery, medicine, trauma, emergency, day surgery, rehab, and more. My critical thinking skills and experience have directly saved lives and that feels incredible. Travel nursing gives me the opportunity to work hard and also gives me the lifestyle to visit my family, fly back home for weddings, road trip to Nova Scotia, PEI, and New Brunswick and go to Boston and Florida all on contract. The greatest adventure is to live the life you’ve always dreamed of. What are you waiting for? Let’s go byyys” #DontBurnOutBurnBright
