Frequently
Asked Questions

What are the requirements to travel as an OR Nurse?

Healthcare traveler requirements vary by facility and state. To ensure that you are ready to go when a recruiter contacts you, 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 OR 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 OR Nurse?

To guarantee that the process is stress-free, it’s a great idea to do your research when selecting a healthcare staffing agency. LRS Healthcare trains all of our recruiters to be subject matter experts, this ensures you receive high-quality, 24/7 support and are placed in an exceptional facility.

How much will I be paid to travel as an OR 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 ensure complete accuracy, we recommend you speak with an LRS Healthcare recruiter so we can review your personalized pay package with you in full transparency.
