Traveler RN Program at UCH

Enrich your life as well as your work.

You love what you do. Your commitment is unwavering; you’re exceedingly capable and thoroughly professional. A nurse of your caliber deserves an optimum opportunity as a Registered Nurse Traveler in our Traveler RN Program.

University of Colorado Hospital in the metro Denver area is not only a four-time MAGNET hospital and the region’s only academic teaching hospital, it consistently ranks among the best academic medical centers in the country by U.S. News & World Report. We are renowned for our superior medicine and ongoing progressive research.

As a Registered Nurse working  in our “in-house” Traveler RN program, you will use your considerable skill to care for complex patient issues. In so doing, your earnest participation with a multidisciplinary team will ensure the utmost quality of care. And, in return for your invaluable contribution, you will benefit from an openness to your unique perspectives and ideas.

Beyond working in such a prestigious institution, as an RN Traveler, you will enjoy living and working in one of the most naturally beautiful states in the country. Spectacular wide open landscapes, incredible blue skies, clear mountain streams and, of course, the majestic Rocky Mountains.

But that’s not all. Once you join our in-house UCH Traveler RN Program, you’ll also reap the rewards and benefits of travel nursing, including:

  • $1450/month housing stipend (taxable to Traveler)
  • Travel reimbursement – up to $400/assignment
