RN Licensure

One of the greatest perks of being a travel nurse is the ability to TRAVEL! But, in order to do so, all traveling nurses must obtain proper licensure before beginning an assignment. One of the best ways to gain access to additional travel nursing opportunities in multiple states is via Nurse Compact Licensure, recently changed to the Enhanced Nurse Licensure (eNCL). Because every state licensure board is self-governed, finding all the necessary information to submit an application can be a difficult, lengthy process on your own, so it's important to address your travel goals with a recruiter to determine the best plan of action. To start you off on the right foot, we've compiled every state's licensure information in one easy to use resource. Just navigate to the region & state you want to obtain a license from and follow the steps. Below you'll find additional licensure resources to aid in the journey to your next travel adventure.
