How much experience do I need to work as a travel nurse?

Travel Nurses - Working with Experience

In large urban centers like Michigan, travel nurse jobs require a high degree of energy and self-starter mentality. As you're about to begin your travel nurse opportunities don't be surprised if you receive very little orientation on your first day. Remember, they need you to fill an immediate need and there isn't much time for cake and ice cream. Yes, your work will be greatly appreciated, but don't expect a half day party with you as the guest of honor. In fact, you might be given a quick rundown of what's been happening on the floor and pointed in the general vicinity of your first patient.

In fact, one of the reasons professional travel nurses are required to have a minimum amount of work experience before taking on traveling nurse jobs is to ensure they have the ability to walk in and quickly pick up where someone else left off.

When applying for travel nurse jobs through PPR Healthcare Staffing, it's important to be as precise as possible when listing work experience and education. Don't forget anything! The more experience you have, the more travel nurse jobs you'll have access to.
