Frequently
Asked Questions

What are the requirements to travel as an ICU Nurse?

Healthcare traveler requirements vary by facility and state. To guarantee that the process is quick and pain-free, we recommend that:
• All professional licenses and certifications are updated and ready to go before you apply.
• Any additional licenses that may be required based on your assignment’s location.
• You have at least 2 years of on-the-job experience as an ICU Nurse. (This isn’t necessarily required, but we have found that these individuals are typically positioned better and will likely be more comfortable with the responsibilities).

How do I get started as a traveling ICU Nurse?

It’s critical to work with a healthcare staffing agency that exceeds your expectations and works around the clock to meet your professional and personal needs. Every relationship that our recruiters build with their travelers is special. That relationship goes beyond days or weeks simply because we care.

How much will I be paid to travel as an ICU Nurse?

Depends on experience and the destination. Different states offer different benefits such as pay. If you are looking for higher pay, this may be something to consider. Pay can vary due to other factors as well, such as the job, facility, and agency you work with.

Something else to pay attention to is whether job boards or sites promote jobs that display pay before or after taxes and include or exclude travel and housing stipends. All of these factors impact what your take-home pay could be and could potentially vary from the number promoted on the job post.

To determine if this information is accurate, reach out to your LRS Healthcare recruiter to verify the details of your personalized pay package.
