I have been an RN for about a year and a half. My experience is 6 months worth of ICU/Med Surge/Tele and about 8 months Hospice/Home Health. Prior to that I worked as an LPN working geriatrics, peds and corrections. I am really interested in travel nursing. Based on my experience can I realistically pursue travel nursing at this time?
