  • How Long is a Typical Travel Nursing Assignment?
    In the United States, the typical travel nursing assignment is thirteen weeks, but anything between eight and twenty-six weeks is common. Hospitals often offer to renew your contract, too, which is called an extension assignment. Extension offers are usually made in the last 3 to 5 weeks of your assignment, but if you’re interested in staying on longer, you should reach out to your recruiter.
  • How does the pay work?
    You will be paid a taxable hourly rate and then given a tax-free stipend for food and housing. Pay packages will always look different depending on the area you are working.
  • What Type of Travel Nursing Jobs Makes the most Money?
    Typically, the most in-demand travel nursing jobs are those that require highly specialized training, knowledge, and experience. This includes positions in the Cardiac Cath Lab, ICUs, Emergency Rooms, and Operating Rooms.
  • How Do Travel Nurses Get Licensed?
    A big concern for many nurses when considering a career in travel nursing is how to gain multi-state licensure. The Nurse Licensure Compact allows nurses to be able to travel from state to state without having to pay to obtain temporary or permanent licenses.
  • What are gap hours?
    Gap time is essentially the hours between non-exempt employees' regular work hours and the 40 hours that employees have to work before they are entitled to overtime pay — or time-and-a-half their regular pay rates. When employees are on the schedule to work for 40 hours a week, no gap time exists.
