What are the requirements to travel as a NICU 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 a NICU 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 much will I be paid to travel as a NICU Nurse?
Short answer: depends on experience (DOE). Pay packages vary by experience, job, facility, and agency. Sites and job boards that promote weekly pay either display the pay before or after taxes and include or exclude travel and housing stipends. These variables affect what your take-home pay could be and could potentially vary from the number promoted on the job post.
