The average weekly travel nurse pay in October in the U.S. was $3,080, down 18.82 percent from $3,794 during the same month in 2021, according to a report from Vivian Health, a national healthcare hiring marketplace.    

This represents the largest year-over-year decrease Vivian Health has seen in 2022.

"Despite this, the decrease in travel nurse pay does appear to be slowing down as pay rates begin to stabilize," the healthcare jobs marketplace told Becker's.
