  1. Process of Licensure
    NJ can take a while, so before. Just the school transcripts that were required for license eligibility. So no to degrees after that. If you have crossed all your t's and have fully signed up with...

  4. Is there such a creature as a traveling 'SNF' nurse?
    Cross Country does do LTC. I see your issue with their site not listing that as a search category, but a Google search showed CC LTC assignments on job boards. An old AllNurses post says that LTC...

  5. Houston, TX
    It is a big city! I think you want to narrow down where you want to live and look on Craigslist (posting your own ad is best), and property managers. Your agency should have some ideas too.

  6. Help! The old bait and switch
    Generally, no. Housing difficulties, especially for travelers with pets, can happen with the best of agencies though. You do have options. No license yet means you really don't have a valid contract...

  7. Traveling without a BSN
    Current reports have BSN nurses at 55% of all nurses. My feeling is that this number may overstate the reality, particularly when you consider years of experience as only 5 years ago, BSN nurse were...

  8. Best credit card for travelers- most rewards

  11. CA finger print cards??!!
    The BON will add the ORI number since they are getting the fingerprint card before the DOJ. That is not going to slow you down. However, out of state applications are currently reported as taking...

  13. Brand new to traveling and need advice
    Your travel pay is usually a fixed sum. As it happens, mileage is often more than air fare when you consider the IRS allowed (and real costs of car ownership) of 56 cents a mile. If you itemize your...

  15. Old LPN.....NEW RN wanting to travel in OR

    You take your act on the road until you find a hospital without local supply to have such requirements (rural areas especially). Heck, that is what I had to do fresh out of nursing school in an mild...
