FAQ

Contract Nursing and Nurse Travel Agencies


FAQ’s about Nurses Pro – A step above all other contract nursing and travel nurse agencies.

How can contract nursing work? It sounds too good to be true!

It’s simple. Our financial model is based on a very high number of professionals working with us at the same time. The Nurses Pro Economy receives a small percentage of the income from each individual professional. In exchange, because we achieve powerful economies of scale with so many contract nursing professionals, we can actually provide services to the entire group of professionals and still make a reasonable profit.

It is also important to know that we are not in the contract nursing business to make a quick buck. If we were, our profit percentages would be much higher! The Nurses Pro Economy is an investment in bringing alive the American Dream for every individual in the United States.

The Nurses Pro Economy is about opportunity long term for a rapidly growing population of professionals who choose to work as Professional Nurses that travel.

As the travel healthcare industry is well-understood by nurse managers and hospital human resource professionals, when your travel career is over and you are seeking a permanent position, your resume will be strengthened by the list of travel assignments.

How will I learn about the hospitals where I will be placed for my travel nurse positions?

Each hospital has its own way of orienting and integrating travelers, depending on the size of the facility, how many travelers they use, how they orient their permanent staff, the orientation procedures of your individual assignment unit, etc. Your career manager will be able to provide you with many of these orientation details when you discuss potential assignments. This is also a great question to bring up during your interviews with the hiring managers at potential nursing assignment locations.

Do I need a new license for each state I have travel nurse positions?


Career management specialists work with you and your recruiter to ensure that you have all the necessary information to obtain the required license for your assignment state well before your start date. Each state does have its own rules and regulations (which change frequently), we encourage you to contact the individual state boards directly to obtain the most up-to-date information and application paperwork.

Is it possible for a friend and me to take contract nursing assignments together?

Yes! Many "travel partners" select their assignments together and either work at the same hospital or at different hospitals in the same city. Some share apartments while others arrange to have their own private apartments in the same complex.

How long will it take before I can start my first contract nursing assignment?
