Allied Health Travelers Make More in Rhode Island
Allied travelers often earn more money than those who take on similar positions in a traditional full-time capacity.

Add to that the fact that healthcare jobs in Rhode Island often pay more than the national average, and you can really get an income boost by taking on short-term contracts in the state.
