Ask a Travel Nurse: LVN Opportunities?


nurse asking a question about travel nursing companiesAsk a Travel Nurse Question:

Are there many opportunities for an LVN who wishes to travel?

 Ask a Travel Nurse Answer:

I don’t know how much help I can be in that my expertise lies in travel for RN’s. However, you might try the nursing forums and see if anyone else can offer some assistance.

Some good travel nurse forums can be found at and the Delphi forum for traveling professionals (go to, look for the box on the right that says “Explore existing forums”, type in “travel nursing” and the top result is a group called Travel Nurses and Therapists with over half a million members).

Pan Travelers is also another good site with a forum. They have a free section and also a portion where there is a charge to access that information.
You can also join Healthcare Travelbook (, which is a sort of Facebook style place for travelers, which also has a forum.

Otherwise, you might try just doing a simple Internet search. I just typed “LPN travel” into Yahoo and found a few sites that appear to have LPN opportunities:

Hope this helps.
