Travel nursing is often advertised as nursing jobs for outside of a nurse’s home country. Most frequently these nurses come from the United States, Canada, or the United Kingdom. Nurses that travel outside of their home country will need many vaccinations depending on the country they are traveling to. Contracts for nurses outside of their home country range in length from 1 to 2 years.
In the United States many nurses travel around their state and also to other states if the need in one area is high vs. the number of nurses available in that area. States that have large portions of rural territory often call in traveling nurses, but sometimes so do urban areas with a high concentration of residents.
