Abstract

Using data from the National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses, the authors compare the characteristics of temporary and permanent registered nurses. They compare their findings for the nursing profession with characteristics of temporary and permanent workers in other occupations. They also look at the role of geography in a registered nurse's decision to become a temporary worker.

Keywords: temporary worker, registered nurse, travel nurse, Demand and Supply of Labor
