How to Become a Travel Nurse – Protouch Staffing

Travel nursing is a specialized career path within the nursing profession that involves registered nurses (RNs) taking short-term assignments in various locations across the country, and sometimes internationally. These assignments typically last between 8 to 26 weeks, although some can be longer or shorter depending on the need. Travel nurses are employed by travel nursing agencies, which connect them with healthcare facilities experiencing temporary staffing shortages due to factors such as seasonal demand, staff vacations, or sudden increases in patient load.
