Hi. You must first become a registered nurse by attending college and passing the NCLEX exam. Then, most travel companies want you to have at least 1, but typically 2 years of hospital experience. You can then do an internet search to find the right travel company for you. You can even talk to a few different companies at the same time. You'll have to apply to each one, but then you'll have your own recruiter who works to find you positions that you are interested in. Then, they will submit you to the healthcare company you are wanting to work with for a contract. They will typically want to do a telephone or zoom interview. Usually, you'll hear back within a few days. If they offer you the contract, you pack up and are on your way. Keep in mind that you have to have a license for each state or a compact license if they accept that. I traveled for years and had a blast. I still keep in touch with friends I made 10-15 years ago and I got to see the country and experience so much! Good luck.
