Can you become a travel nurse if you are a military wife?

I am almost done with getting my Bachelor's degree in Nursing and I would like to start working in Labor & Delivery for a while before I go into travel nursing, but my only concern is could I even do that as a military wife? I'm not married yet, but my boyfriend and I were thinking about getting married after I finish school. I was thinking if I was a travel nurse I could just travel locally to wherever we get stationed majority of the time and maybe sometimes I could travel away to other places as well. Has anyone ever done something like this? How did it work for you?

Have not ever done anything like this but have considered “local” travel. I would assume you could make it work by deciding your priorities beforehand and sticking with that plan. If the parameters turn out to be too much, then you could always change back to a more traditional military family work-family configuration. I was in a military area one time where I heard a lot about how difficult it was for military spouse nurses to obtain appropriate work. They pretty much had to let their nursing careers take a back seat if they were following their spouse from military assignment to military assignment. But that goes for spouses in any line of work.
