I would recommend being a nurse on a med/surg unit or in the ICU for at least two years before travelling. You will need a basic understanding of how to function as a nurse before you being travel assignments.

However, after those two years are up, you will contract with companies to begin travel nursing. They will line you up with hospitals.

Before you go straight into a travel nurse job, I would recommend working as a regular nurse for some experience. Employers are usually looking for at least 2-3 years of experience before they take you in so that you can prove to them that you are ready for the job.
