What is a Travel LVN / LPN?
A travel LVN / LPN is a nurse who takes on short-term contracts typically ranging from 8 to 26 weeks in different locations and facilities across the country. Like travel RNs, they enjoy the flexibility of choosing their assignments, the allure of travel, and, often, higher pay rates than their staff counterparts.
Benefits of Being a Travel LVN / LPN

Understanding licensing requirements is crucial for traveling LVN / LPNs as you gear up for your next destination. Each state has its unique set of licensing requirements. As such, it's essential to understand the licensing prerequisites of the state you're targeting well ahead of your assignment, ensuring a smooth transition in your traveling nursing journey.
