Planning for a life of traveling as a nurse can be an organizational nightmare. When looking at a new contract, there are a lot of variables to take into consideration. We discuss these variables a bit more in depth here. From obtaining your Travel Nurse RN license, applications, packing and then the actual traveling.

For the Travel Nurse, RN License is required in each individual state in order to practice (this does not take into consideration those that hold an RN license in a state which is under the eNLC). RN license times are varied tremendously state to state which makes it challenging when looking at a new location.
