There are slight differences in the requirements from state to state in terms of licensing and continuing education, but they it’s hardly like practicing law in one state or another.

And with a nursing shortage throughout the country, it’s feasible to move from one city to another and have very little trouble finding a job.

Other travel-related options for nurses include working as a travel nurse for an agency, taking temporary assignments as a fill-in nurse for those who want some extra money but not the commitment of a full-time job. Or, one can even travel the globe as a nurse, which is an especially great idea for those looking to make a difference in a country where resources and medical professionals are scarce.
