The Arizona Board of Registered Nursing processes permanent and temporary licenses for Registered Nurses. Temporary licenses are valid for about 6 months which is perfect for travel nurses interested in two or fewer contract positions. If you're looking for longer term travel nursing contracts in Arizona, the permanent license might be the right option for you. Arizona is a walk through state and is affiliated with the Nurse Licensure Compact or Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC). The Arizona Board of Registered Nursing is affiliated with NURSYS. If you run into any trouble applying for or acquiring your RN license in AZ, feel free to contact us, we'd love to help you get licensed. Below you'll find additional resources for acquiring and renewing your Arizona Registered Nurse License.

Records from several reputable sources claim that RNs working in Arizona earn well above the national average. Some major metropolitan areas, such as Los Angeles, report average salaries as high as $90,000/yr. Even sources like Indeed, which only report on salaries offered for open positions (often closer to entry level rather than senior positions) report higher than average salaries for RNs. The median and mean salaries are both high in Arizona but the highest-earning positions often offer at or above $100k per year. This is super enticing to travel nurses who have a great opportunity to increase their earning potential. Since most living expenses are paid for or reimbursed, travel nurses working in Arizona have even more earning potential.

Demand for qualified registered nurses is at an all-time high in Arizona. Projections for future demand indicate that this demand will continue to increase as the population grows and new nurses come into the field at a slower rate than new positions are opened. This means that most facilities in the state are looking to travel nurses to help fill vacant positions. Some nursing specialties are in higher demand than others. The following RN specialties have some of the highest demand.
