Where can Travel Nurses Go?
Short answer: anywhere there’s a staffing need for nurses. Long answer, travel nursing assignments are available throughout the nation, but the location of these particular travel nursing jobs will vary based on the fluctuating needs of a hospital or healthcare facility. At the end of the day, you are in control of choosing where you want to go as a travel nurse. If your dream location is not currently presenting any opportunities, chances are that it will be in the future.
One important thing to keep in mind when looking at travel nursing jobs in various locations is the fact that you need an active license in the state where the assignment is to work it. In fact, to even apply for a travel nursing job, you often need to have this licensing completed. Talk to your travel nursing recruiter about compact state licenses to find out if your license is good in multiple states or if you should consider getting licensed in a state that is part of the eNLC.
