RN Licensure

If you're working as a MedSurg RN and travel is what you crave then travel nursing is the perfect niche for you! 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 states 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.

One of the most invigorating experiences while being a MedSurg travel nurse is the unexpected impact that it can have on your career and life. Meeting and building lifelong friendships with like minded professionals as you travel is often listed as one of the most impactful aspects to travel nursing. Whether you're new to MedSurg nursing or you're an experienced traveler these are some of the top reasons you should work with PPR travel nursing:

  • Challenge - If you love a good challenge, then both traveling as a registered nurse and working as an RN in a Medical Surgical unit is for you! Every day, pretty much every minute, there are new challenges to face and overcome. While it’s not as unpredictable as the emergency room you’ll find that challenges nearly as great when it comes to problem-solving. You're not only changing the lives of your patients, you're helping the families as well on a daily basis.
  • Variety - On top of the variety that comes with traveling in general, we give you the option of extending your stay at a facility past 13 weeks. Don’t want to move onto the next place? That’s just fine. If there’s still an open opportunity, we’ll work with the facility to ensure you have the option of extending your assignment.
  • Teamwork - Adjusting to a new team in a new facility can always be challenging, but when you work with PPR, you’ve got a team on your side. Our recruiters are always a phone call away if you have questions or concerns that can’t be answered by your facility.

PPR is an equal opportunity employer.
