Travel nursing license timeframes and cost by state
As your nurse recruiters, we want to make the process of getting licensed as convenient as possible. The chart above serves as a resource for your most common licensing questions in each state. For more information about licensing timeframes (i.e., what’s a compact state?), click here to become familiar with the terminology and everything else 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.
