Travel Nurse State Licensure

As your nurse recruiters, we want to make the process of getting licensed as convenient as possible. Travel nurse licensing timeframes and terminology (compact state vs. walk-through state) can be confusing, so our team is here to help you learn everything you need to know about applying for a license in a new state.

Please note that timeframes for verifications, transcripts, and background checks can affect the processing times for travel nurses, and each person’s situation may vary slightly. Please consult your recruiter to get more detailed information.

NOTE: Orange = Compact States

Timeframes are subject to change, so contact the Board of Nursing if you have any questions.
