What do I need to get started?
If you’re thinking of becoming a travel nurse, you might wonder what kind of documents you’ll need to gather for your first assignment. Our recruiters can help you through this process and even help you get organized.
Generally, the more documents you have at your fingertips, the better, as you never know when an assignment will ask for a more obscure document. Most travel nurses have both physical and digital copies of the documents they might need for an assignment.
Some documents you may need to get started as a travel nurse include:
- Driver’s license
- RN license
- Fingerprint cards
You’ll also need to set up appointments for medical exams, like a physical exam, TB test, respirator fit test, drug screenings, and vaccinations if applicable. Our team can help you through this process to get you set up for your first assignment!
It’s also important to remember that many states will require you to have a license in that state. For example, if your primary residence isn’t in one of the states that accepts compact nursing licenses or if you’re taking an assignment in a state that isn’t part of the Nurse Licensure Compact, then you may need a temporary or permanent license for that state. In some cases, this can take some time to obtain, so talk to your recruiter about your career and destination goals. We’re here to help you make them happen and can help you get the licenses and certifications you need for your dream job.
