What are the requirements to travel as an OT?
Healthcare traveler requirements vary by facility and state. To ensure that you are ready to go when a recruiter contacts you, we recommend that:

How much will I be paid to travel as an OT?
The job, destination, facility, and agency you work with are all variables that directly affect your take-home pay. You will also want to check if sites and job boards that promote weekly pay either display the pay before or after taxes and include or exclude travel and housing stipends. These variables affect what your take-home pay could be and could potentially vary from the number promoted on the job post.
