Hello! 

Is it manageable to go to NP school and also be a travel nurse? Any testimonies, words of advice or encouragement. I am starting psych NP school in janurary and assessing my options.

if it's a brick and mortar school...no

if it's an online program how are you planning to do clinicals and find preceptors? Doing so is already extremely difficult without adding traveling to the mix

Hi there,

It may be doable with an online program.  However, finding clinical could be an issue when traveling all over the country.  If you decide on travel, local travel may be the best fit for NP school. good luck!
