Travel nursing checklist item #9: Dealing with paperwork


OK, so you would think that the next step is to apply online, but slow down. Before you start applying for any position or contacting any travel nursing company, you will want to make sure you have all your paperwork lined up. The paperwork you will need includes, but is not limited to:

  • An up to date Resume
  • A copy of your Nursing Licenses (especially for the state you want to work in)
  • The certifications needed for your specialty
  • Your Driver’s License
  • Your Social Security card (front and back)
  • Your BCLS (front and back)
  • Two references from your supervisory or charge nurse at your most recent clinical experiences
  • And all your immunization records, include the following
    MMR & Rubeola Titers /Vaccinations (New rules state that MMR be no more than 10 yrs old.)
    Hepatitis B Titers/Vaccinations
    Varicella Titer or Varicella History
    PPD within the last 12 months or Chest X-ray
    Physician Statement or physical completed with the last 12 months

You can make paper copies of all of these, but even easier is having them all in a digital format. If you don’t have a scanner at home you can run to any FedEX/Kinkos, CopyMax or something similar and have them h and le it for you. It may seem like an extra step, but it will make the process easier in the long run.
