Nurse Practitioners Taking Interest In Traveling

Over the past few weeks we have seen an increase in the number of nurse practitioners applying for travel nurse positions. NPs are proving to be a growing factor in providing primary care and can usually be found supporting physicians with a general medical practice. Could it be that NPs are feeling a bit trapped in the doctor’s office each day and are looking for some new challenges and venues where they can apply their skills?  We’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, USA Today has published an article which addresses the growing influence of nurse practitioners. Read it here.

  1. I am a Family Nurse Practitioner working in Emergency Medicine in a large Boston Hospital. Looking to travel to Northern California(Larkspur/Mill Valley)in June of 07. Wondering bout any opportunities that may becoming that way. I graduated RN school in 1983, and NP school at UCSF in 1997. Have been working throughout my career.

  2. I think that many nurse practitioners are reaching an age where their children are grown and they now have the opportunity to travel without compromising the family. The primary care office is no longer the “doctor’s office” but a place in which the patient may see a variety of primary health care providers.
