Even sources like Indeed, which only report on salaries offered for open positions (often closer to entry level rather than senior positions) report higher than average salaries for RNs. The median and mean salaries are both high in New Mexico but the highest-earning positions often offer at or above $80k per year. This is super enticing to travel nurses who have a great opportunity to increase their earning potential. Since most living expenses are paid for or reimbursed travel nurses working in New Mexico have even more earning potential.
Travel nursing is one of the most stable careers available for RNs and has been for decades. One of the largest unrecognized job indicators is the increasing gap between the total number of new jobs being created compared to the irregularly low number of registered nurses getting licensed. Because of this gap, we expect that there will continue to be high demand for travel nurses in New Mexico. As that gap continues to widen, you will find increasing opportunities to become a travel nurse at your desired facility.
New Mexico travel nurse companies offer many benefits you won't find with standard registered nurse jobs anywhere else in the nation. Some nurses only search for which states have the highest paid nurses. You can find high paying travel nurse assignments in any state, so it's important to consider other benefits you want in a travel nurse position. For example, registered nurses working with PPR travel nursing have the opportunity to work at a few of the most prestigious hospitals in New Mexico.
If you're considering becoming a travel nurse we'd love to work with you. We have staff available to work with you if you have any questions about how to become a traveling nurse. Our nurse recruiters have professional placement resources to make sure your assignment is a successful one. Check out some of our current open travel nurse jobs in New Mexico.
Some nursing skills are in higher demand than others. In New Mexico specifically, demand for qualified registered nurses is at an all-time high. Projections for future RN demand in New Mexico indicate that this demand will continue to increase as the population grows and new nurses come into the field at a slower rate than new positions are opened. This means that most facilities in NM are looking to travel nurse agencies to help fill vacant positions. Some of the following specialties are in highest demand.
As a registered nurse, getting your travel nurse license is one of the best decisions you can make to prepare for an assignment in New Mexico. This will ensure that you make the most money, as the demand for travel nurses involves raising the salary above the national average for nursing. Registered nurses work with travel nurse agencies to find fun, high-paying jobs.
