Hi all travel nurses,
This is an area of nursing that I am considering...I am an LPN with 20 yrs experience...mostly geriatrics and have been contacted by several travel companies recently! ( I filled out on-line applications.) I have a few questions I hope someone will answer..
!) Obviously nurses need to be licensed in the state they are working in. Having just recently moved and transferred my license, I know what a long drawn out process this can be...it can take 8-10 weeks! How do you get around this problem. Are some of you licensed in like every state and do you do this way in advance. If I were offered an assignment say in FL, are they going to wait the 8-10 weeks it takes me????? I don't think so!
2)Can I take my hubby with me????????
3)Do they pay for your transportation to the area. What about an assignment like Hawaii(which I have been offered)??Will they pay for my flight over there and then rent me a car, or would I be on my own for transportation once I got there!
