Raquel’s Answer

There are no extra educational requirements outside of an RN license to be a travel nurse. There are a variety of travel nursing companies that do travel nursing contracts. Some hospitals may require a BSN but not all. Nurses are in high demand right now and hospitals are filling positions with travel nurses so it is a very lucrative field at the moment. Due to that companies have decreased the experience requirement to one year. Contracts run for typically three months at a time, but you can extend.
