Could I work 3/4 of year as a nurse and travel last 1/4 of the year?

I have a dream of travelling, possibly sailing.

Is it possible to work for let's say 6 months, then take a month or so off to go sailing, then come back and work for another 2-3 months, and leave again?

Are you only able do this as a travel nurse? Or are there other ways to do it? How much leeway do travel nurses have when they take time off during the year?

Also, are there nursing jobs that allow you to work overseas? (Besides working on cruise ships)

Thankyou!!

    Yes, travel nurses can work in other countries. And they can work as many or as few weeks as they want. If you live frugally while you're working, you can save up enough to travel. I know a nurse who has looked into this, and has looked at jobs in places like Australia. She also worked as an agency nurse for a while, where she could take 3 month or 6 month contracts.I think there's an online site where you can look at the kinds of positions available.

    It's my dream, I'd like to explore the whole world. I think someday I'll do that. Honestly, I see only the positive side of work and travel. There is an opportunity to organize your working day where and when you want, isn't it cool? To spend some hours on work and then exploring new places, it's amazing! Besides, there are plenty of freelance sites https://travelsites.com/work-and-travel/

    Yes you can. Just find an employer that will allow it.

    Don't know why this is posted in Cruise Travel since you made no mention of working on a cruise ship.

    Depends on the employer, completely.

    Typically not. Doctors get paid sabbaticals after 10 years.

    It is possible but highly unlikely. You would have to work temp positions and live very cheaply to have the money for your travel. There are tons of overseas jobs.
