What does a Travel Nurse do?
Travel nurses are nurses who work for limited periods of time in facilities in different geographic locations. Their assignments are often short-term in nature and may be needed to provide additional support during outbreaks, natural disasters, or other situations creating an extreme demand. They provide direct patient care and perform a range of nursing tasks, including dispensing medication and overseeing medical treatment and procedures. They may specialize in a particular type of care or in supporting patients with certain medical conditions.
Travel nurses are typically RNs and must have a valid nursing license in their state, or a multi-state license if they will be working in more than one state. They should have extensive experience providing direct patient care. These roles require significant flexibility and the ability to adapt quickly to new environments.
