Travel Nursing Jobs FAQ
Do I need to be licensed in each state I work in?
No, you don’t have to obtain a license in every state. Each state has its own licensure process which varies depending on the state; however, most travel nursing agencies help you obtain the required license before your start date. It can take up to 8 weeks for processing time, which is why it’s important not to wait.
What are The Educational Requirements To Become a Travel Nurse?
Educational requirements for a travel nurse are the same as those of a regular nurse. Most states require that nurses provide proof of completion of an accredited nursing program. A bachelor’s degree is the minimum requirement for most nursing positions, and most employers prefer candidates with a master’s degree.
If you are able to obtain an RN license in the state within 2 years of obtaining your bachelor’s degree, you will not need to complete any additional licensure requirements.
What are the experience requirements to become a travel nurse?
Travel nurses must have two years of full-time nursing experience (1,000 hours) within the past 7 years. In order to be considered for a travel assignment, you will need to become a licensed nurse in your state of assignment.
*All required documents are obtained at time of application or within 4 weeks of your start date*
You must also be able to pass the U.S. Department of Transportation licensing and medical exam.
What does a travel nurse‘s schedule look like?
Travel nursing is a 24/7 job. Depending on your schedule, you may be working in a different state and time zone every day. Some nurses work 3 or 4 days on, then take 2 or 3 days off. Other nurses work 12-hour shifts for extended periods of time and only work one or two weeks at a time in different states before returning home for up to three weeks off.
How quickly can I start a travel nurse job?
If you are currently an active traveler with a good travel nursing record, you can apply to positions as early as the day you receive your offer letter from one of our hospitals. If you have not worked in a travel nurse role for some time, you’ll need to become licensed and submit recent copies of your RN license & BLS certification (if required). This will usually take 4 weeks.
