Did you know? Podcasts are among the most popular ways to access media, with over 2 million podcasts created in 2021. And with travel nurses’ busy schedules and on-the-go routines, podcasts are the best means to consume nursing content and medical news. With boundless podcasts, it’s normal to feel misguided and uncertain of where to start. Fortunately, Stability combed through all the audio broadcasts and created a list of the top five best podcasts for travel nurses.
Best Podcasts for Travel Nurses:
We may be a little biased because we have a partnership with Operation Happy Nurse, but we wouldn’t do it if we weren’t huge fans of what they are doing.

Carley and Shannon tackle a different practice each season, talking to experts within the field and partaking in the practice themselves before debriefing on the experience.
