Ask a Travel Nurse Question:
Hi Mr. Morrisson. I am currently in nursing school pursuing my LVN. I just have one more semester and am continuing to look at all the different opportunities the nursing profession has to offer. My question to you is: Can an LVN be a travel nurse?
I appreciate your time.
Ask a Travel Nurse Answer:
While travel positions are certainly more plentiful for RN’s, there are still opportunities to travel as an LPN.
Just type in “LVN travel” into any search engine and you should find many hits for companies that offer travel for LVN’s. However, the requirements would be similar in that you will need at least a year of experience to travel.
Become proficient in any skills that you can as an LVN during your first year and take any opportunities for advanced learning or higher certifications that will make you more marketable as a traveler.
Hope this helps.
