Travel Nursing Careers + Salary Basics

The following page shows the career & education requirements, salary and job outlook for a Travel Nursing around the country.

What We Do

Travel nurses are those who work in different geographical areas for short periods of time. Usually, they are hired for a 13 week period, being sent to wherever they are needed during that period. There is a huge demand for nurses in the country at present, with many areas experiencing frequent shortages. As a result, traveling nurses almost always have a job to go to while the shortage is addressed.

Work Environment

Travel nurses usually work for a 13 week period, although this can be extended to 26 weeks, and they can be placed in various teams and specializations. Because of the high demand for travel nurses, they usually have a great degree of choice in terms of their work environment. They are also able to take time off regularly, taking a break after each assignment if they so choose. Because of this, they can quite literally work in any health care environment that exists.

How to Become a Travel Nursing

Travel nurses are registered nurses (RNs). This means that they must have completed an associate’s degree in nursing as a bare minimum. However, the vast majority of employers now look for more highly educated nurses, which means the greatest demand is found in nurses who have completed their bachelor’s degree, mainly the BSN (bachelor of science in nursing). To become a travel nurse, one must first attend a nursing school and earn, at minimum, a degree as a registered nurse (RN). Becoming an RN is competitive and takes anywhere between two to four years depending on your program and place of study. Once these credentials have been obtained, the RN must work for a minimum of one year in a hospital setting in the specialty which they wish to practice. All facilities require their nurses to have at minimum an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree.

Training & Certification Requirements

As travel nurses are often RNs, they must first have obtained their NCLEX-RN certification. After that, they usually also have to have at least one year of work experience in a hospital environment before they can enlist as a travel nurse.
