The beauty of the Hawaiian Islands has inspired the songs of countless artists, and for good reason. Plumeria blossoms and tropical fruit permeate the incomparable landscape. Tune your radio to any local station and the mellow sounds of Hawaii’s unique take on pop music will instantly remove your cares.
Hawaiians have elevated relaxation to an art. Let your worries slip away on any number of perfect white, pink, black or red sand beaches. Sink into the warm sand and breathe deeply as your eyes scan the horizon and your ears fill with crashing waves and fluttering wildlife. Hawaii’s rugged mountains, tranquil sea and lush rainforests forge views that will stop you in your tracks.
If it’s action you’re after, look no further than the famous waves of Oahu’s North Shore – they draw the best and bravest surfers from across the globe. Head to calmer waters to drift above the sea in a kayak or venture below for some of the best scuba diving on the planet.
If you seek a picture-perfect vista, you can find it 10,000 feet above sea level on the dormant volcano Haleakala. Venture to Kīlauea Iki to hike across the active volcano’s crater. Wander across the hardened lava that is still warm to the touch and stare in amazement at the steam ascending from the ground that was a lake of bubbling lava just over 60 years ago. Watch the sun set over the horizon from one of these lofty perches then head down to a luau to dine on some of the most flavorful island food in the pacific, become entranced by the fire dancer’s prowess and the swift movements of the hula.

Recruiters You’ll Love
Humble brag alert: Our recruiters have the best reviews in the business. Don’t believe us? See for yourself.
I just started a new contract with Host Healthcare and my recruiter Kristen E. has been a huge help along the way! Her positive demeanor, confidence, and excellent communication were one of the reasons I chose Host Healthcare. Even after we signed a contract, I have always felt supported along the way.
Elise has been the most amazing recruiter to work with on my travel nursing journey! Elise is extremely professional and communicates in a timely manner. She has listened to my needs throughout the whole process and because of this I have been able to land some great travel assignments. Most contracts require more than two years of nursing experience and unfortunately, I have not reached my two year mark yet. However, Elise has been persistent and diligent towards finding me a contract as well as making sure it meets my criteria. I highly recommend Elise as well as the Host Healthcare Travel Agency for your next travel nursing assignment!
Working with Kristen has been nothing short of amazing! She always goes above and beyond. I love that I never have to ask her for help with anything more than once or feel like I’m hassling her. Going to a new location can be nerve racking for some, it’s nice to have a recruiter that helps make the transition easier!

The islands await you with travel nursing jobs in hawaii, travel nursing reviews.
I have been incredibly impressed by the professionalism, ease of communication, ability to have all requirements for onboarding fulfilled in a timely manner, and just overall outstanding service. Lindsay Hernandez is my particular recruiter and she has been a pleasure to work with, as well as all the team members at Stability. I’m looking forward to staying with them for my next assignment. I highly recommend them to my nursing friends, and anyone looking to travel as a nurse!
Someone was always available to answer my questions. I know my recruiter went above and beyond to get me the best pay and benefits. I have worked previously with companies that I feel was less than honest about benefits, such as PTO. I’m now sure how Stability Health treats their staff, but they are doing something right! I have yet to speak to someone that wasn’t pleasant. It’s as if they all love their job and it shows and it keeps me excited to be a part of their team. At this point, I would not consider traveling with another company. I don’t feel like a number. I don’t know how they do it! I recommend Stability Health to every traveler I meet. I tell them they would be making a huge mistake to go with any company.
My recruiter Amanda is amazing and always timely with her responses. Debbie who is my nurse experience specialist who is with me all times of the contract is truly awesome. Love how responsive she is and will answer any and all my questions. Big thanks to Jesse my compliance coordinator for making all the appointments and getting me travel ready. Can’t thank my team enough for all they do. Any question or issue I have they resolve right away. And I love that they breakdown each contract into a spread so you know exactly what your getting for the terms of the contract.
They are they for you via, call , text or email. And it’s very easy transition. They encourage you to ask questions and make themselves available from the moment your hiring process starts. To even checking on you on first day assignment to the following week.
My recruiter is very responsive and personable. I have NEVER had any issues with them!! This agency even has PTO! None of my co workers with other agencies have this benefit!! Also the rates are equal or higher than most other agencies!! Everything feels more like family than business and for that I would choose stability over any other agency!! I am so happy I chose to work with them!
My recruiter, and other staff I have had the pleasure of interacting with, are all so friendly and helpful. My recruiter is responsive, and even reached out while she was on vacation to check on me! I’ve worked with other agencies in the past, but Stability is next level when it comes to making your travel nursing experience as seamless as possible! Special shout out to Lindsay (best recruiter ever) and Tracy. Amazing people to work with.
Stability Healthcare has been amazing at helping me transition into travel nursing. I talked to many recruiters when looking into travel nursing and Chad in particular stood out. He was always so kind and quick to respond. Everyone I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to from Stability has been just as kind and it truly feels like they all care about you enjoying your assignment.
The response time from my recruiter and nurse specialist is amazing! They both have been so great to work with on my first assignment out in California!!! Chad and Samantha both are super caring and very responsive! I already extended my contract with the hospital because of the smooth process. They made the transition from Florida to California a lot loss stressful than I imagined. Would definitely recommend them both!!!
Everything is so simplified. I am honestly happy I found them. I plan on doing more contracts with them in the future. From their process to submitting yourself to assignments, to the ease of compliance, and the easiest time keeping system, I would definitely recommend to everyone. Samantha is very sweet and I can see they truly care about their nurses.

3,000+ Nurses Love Partnering With Trusted Nurse Staffing
Trusted nurse staffing is such a great company to work for and they are so easy to work with. I love using them as my first company for travel nursing!
My recruiter did an amazing job at finding the best fit for me! An outstanding job with communication, updates and ensuring all my questions were answered!!
I have been with Trusted Staffing for about 18 months now. I have essentially been working local contracts, but the experiences have been memorable. My recruiter, is always available when I have a question or concern. Travel nursing is something all nurses should experience. I can't wait until I can do some serious traveling
Every member of this company I’ve interacted with has exceeded my expectations. My recruiter, Alex, is so commutative and goes above and beyond always. I can’t imagine switching to another company!
I have had the best experience with Trusted Nurse Staffing. My recruiter Tom is amazing. He always treats me with respect and as a friend. He is on top of everything I need. And when my Dad passed away, he helped me with time off, no problem and they even sent me a beautiful comfort box that was very helpful. Fully recommend this agency.
How To Become a Travel Nurse in Hawaii With Trusted Nurse Staffing in 3 Simple Steps
Start with our Pronto job search. With Pronto, you can search for assignments based on location, specialty, compensation, shifts, and more.
From there, you can easily browse the Hawaii listings that look most promising to you. If you don’t see anything that you like right away, you can update your settings and Pronto will notify you when more listings that meet your criteria become available in Hawaii.
Once you’ve discovered the assignment that suits your wants and needs, simply sign up, sign in, and apply.
You can do it all in the Pronto job search, such as applying, uploading your credentials and documentation, entering your available start date, and more.
If you need assistance, don’t worry! Trusted Nurse Staffing can connect you with a team member to ensure you’ve completed the process correctly.
Once a contract is offered to you, simply review and sign and you’re all set to start your Hawaii travel nursing assignment. Maybe you’ll fall in love with the island vibes and find yourself wanting to extend your contract. Or, perhaps you’ve still got a lust for adventure and want to continue onto another state and assignment. Whatever you choose, our staff is here to assist you throughout the process.
You crave island time, beaches, and consistently warm weather. Perhaps you like the upcountry life with fresh locally grown produce and wineries. When you are looking for travel nurse jobs, Hawaii is an attractive option.
Living in Hawaii is synonymous with a slower pace of life called “island time.” If you want to escape the rat race of the mainland and slow down for a while, Hawaii may be the place for you.
If you want access to some city life, the island of Oahu has the diversity of Honolulu and the surfing paradise of North Beach. You could go hiking up the Koko Crater trail, snorkeling, surfing, or stand-up paddleboarding off the coastline.
You can also get your fill of history at Pearl Harbor or the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. There are lots of museums dedicated to local history, both pre- and post-colonization.
If you’re looking for diverse geography, Maui is a great option. With 17 different microclimates, there is a preferred climate for everyone. Agriculture is abundant on Maui, and you can find fresh, local produce year-round.
Spend time on the coastline and peruse the shops and restaurants in communities like Lahaina, Kaanapali, and Wailea. Or head upcountry to the charming neighborhood of Makawao. The drive to Hana is an exercise in control as the 64.4-mile-long highway is narrow, winding, and passes over 59 bridges — many of which are only wide enough for one car to pass. Let your adventurous side out, and this road trip will be one you never forget.
Moving to Hawaii is difficult, but not impossible, without a local contact. As a malihini — a newcomer to Hawaii — you may have difficulty getting a good price on an apartment, finding a job, and many other things. Your recruiter will help you navigate all these things to make your transition as easy as possible, saving you from much of the newcomer stress.
Becoming a travel nurse in Hawaii is also a great way to get your foot in the door in order to move permanently to the islands. Just like any travel nursing contract, this time allows you to scope out an area and a facility before taking a permanent position.
Each facility has a distinct culture, and a travel nurse has the luxury of not being committed to one location. Bureaucracy and facility politics are easier to manage when your position is temporary.

What to know about home health travel nursing
What it’s like to work as a travel nurse in hawaii.
When people think of travel nursing, they often think of the exciting places it could take them , and Hawaii is often at the top of the list. After all, what could be better than travel nursing in Hawaii? You get to spend a few months exploring the island, you help people along the way, and you get paid for it. Kelly Kilcoyne, a NICU travel nurse, got to do just that on her first travel nursing assignment. Here’s what Kelly learned and some of the things she was able to experience while travel nursing in Hawaii .
Getting started in travel nursing
Kelly started her nursing career in Scranton, Pennsylvania. About two years in, she decided to give travel nursing a try. She originally wanted to get her feet wet by taking a local travel nursing job, but her recruiter, Sarah, encouraged her to give Hawaii a try.
It wasn’t long before she got a call at 11 p.m. from a Hawaii number. That phone call turned into an interview, which led to Kelly’s first travel nursing job in Oahu . She lived in Waikiki — a five-minute walk from the beach, where she could literally get her feet wet whenever she wanted.
Experiencing a new culture
The culture of Hawaii is quite different from the mainland United States. It’s known for being laid back and casual, and Kelly noticed this during her work there. For example, she wasn’t “Kelly” or “the nurse,” she was “Auntie Kelly.”
“Auntie is a term of respect and endearment, especially if you were taking care of little kids, so I was Auntie Kelly and all the nurses were Auntie or Uncle,” Kelly explains.
Hawaii’s related culture meant that Kelly grew close to the parents of the babies she took care of.
“It was a mix of personal and professional because some of those babies had been there so long,” Kelly says. “The parents know everybody by name. You know the parents and all the family members, and you know what time of day they like to come. You’re excited to tell them news like, ‘Oh, he took his first bottle today.’ It was always really nice.”
In the continental United States, we’re used to driving just about anywhere within a state, but because Hawaii is made up of islands that are, by definition, separated by water, parents often had to fly back and forth to visit their babies in the NICU.
Making new friends
One intimidating part of travel nursing can be the challenge of making friends while on assignment . Before her assignment, Kelly was worried she would feel like an outsider in a tight-knit community. However, Kelly found that there were other travel nurses in Hawaii, and she quickly made friends with the other travelers. It was nice to have a social group to hang out with when she was off shift. Kelly said she still talks to the friends she made in Hawaii even though it’s been more than two years.
Kelly was able to make friends outside of the travelers too. She got to know the staff and other nurses of the hospital very well. And one day, she just joined a group of strangers for a game of beach volleyball. It all goes back to that laid-back attitude of Hawaii. Hawaiians are known for being open and welcoming, so it’s a great place for travel nurses to go.
Exploring the Islands
Although the culture of travel nursing in Hawaii is great, that’s not usually the main reason people want to take a travel nursing job there. They want to lounge on white beaches, hike volcanoes, and chase waterfalls. Kelly had three months to do all of that and more when she wasn’t working.
When she had four days off, she flew to Maui and drove the beautiful-but-white-knuckle Road to Hana . She also snorkeled, where she got to see tropical fish, bright coral reefs, and sea turtles. On her shorter periods of time off from work, she explored Oahu. She hiked to see incredible waterfalls, watched surfers, or just lounged on the beach.
“Some of my favorite days were just unwinding because I could walk to the beach. I got myself a library card, rented a couple of books, and just brought a little chair to the beach and a little drink and snack and I’d just relax,” said Kelly.
Kelly learned to appreciate Hawaii in its small moments as well. She talked about watching the sunset as she drove into work for the night shift. Then, at the end of her shift, if things were stressful, she could come home, change into her swimsuit, and then sit by the ocean to decompress.
In any assignment, travel nurses should take full advantage of wherever their job is, but this is especially the case with Hawaii. Kelly recommends, “Just jump into it with both feet. Hawaii was so wonderful, and I did so many wonderful things. But for every awesome thing I did there was still five other things I could have done.”

Kaity biggar discusses ‘going back to the hospital’ for a new nursing contract.
Compassion in action.
Bachelor Nation fans met Kaity Biggar on Season 27 of “The Bachelor” when she got engaged to Zach Shallcross.
The two couldn’t be more in love and are enjoying their lives together in Austin, Texas.
Shortly after their time on “The Bachelor,” both Kaity and Zach went back to their full-time jobs, and Kaity has been continuing to work in the hospital as a travel nurse.
Over the past few weeks, she was between assignments, but she just took to TikTok to reveal she has a new nursing assignment and is going back to work.
In the video, the Bachelor Nation star discussed her new assignment and answered nursing questions.
Waiting for your permission to load TikTok Post.
She said, “Guys, I’m going back to the hospital for another contract and we’re going to talk all things nursing. Also, I got a new box of scrubs! As a Canadian, I work on a TN visa that allows me to work here in the United States. I drove all the way from Toronto, Ontario to San Antonio, Texas with my brother. It was a 28 hour drive. Yes, American nurses get paid way more than Canadian nurses.”
Kaity went on, sharing the challenges of being a travel nurse and how getting placed in new assignments works.
She said, “One of the most challenging things for me as a travel nurse was learning different charting systems at different hospitals. Travel nurses will usually sign on for a 13 week contract, you can get extended or you could not get extended. Also, on my travel assignments, I use Landing apartments because they furnish the whole thing for me, it’s so seamless and effortless.”
We love seeing Kaity thriving and loving her job as a nurse and we’re so grateful for the important work she’s doing!
