Hello I am currently in an RN program in Minneapolis and am interested in getting interested in being a traveling nurse. What level of work experience is necessary. I graduate Dec 2012.
Most travel nursing positions require a bare minimum of one year of experience. Increasingly, travel nursing agencies are asking for two and even three years of nursing experience.
The reason for this is simple. A client facility wants you to be able to “hit the floor” running. They cannot put a lot of time into training a travel nurse who is only commited to a 13 week contract.
