Hi Cheryl! How long have you been out of the job? In order to travel, generally facilities will want to see 6months to a year of recent experience.

If you have been out of the hospital setting for more than one year, it will be a challenge. Most hospitals require current experience no older than one year. Call me if you're interested. Steven S.

Absolutely. We may have to "rule out" a few facilities that are sticklers for constant specialty-specific experience, but frankly there aren't that many that can currently afford to be "choosey" with the current travel needs. 800-245-9414

How long has it been since you last worked in a hospital? if it's within a year or so should be just fine.

HI Cheryl, First, you would need a medical release from your doctor stating you are able to go back to work. Also, it would depend on how long you had been our of your "travel" position before being able to secure the same job. The hospital would have to have an open need to bring you back more than likely. If its been more than a year since you worked, I would suggest trying to pick up some PRN.

Hi Cheryl. That is a great question. It would depend on if the hospital still has an opening and if you got medical clearance to go back to work. It also would depend on how long you have been out of work. I would be happy to talk with you and learn about your particular situation and then give you the appropriate course of action you can take to get back to work. You can feel free to call me at 888-777-4920 ext. 104. I look forward to talking with you and to helping you sort things out :-) Have a nice, wonderful day.

How long have you been out of the nursing field? I have been able to place a former travel nurse in a facility with an extensive period of time off due to an illness in the family. Are you open to locations?

It would depend on your experience and your willingness and flexibility when it comes to assignments. Also hospitals want to see some recent experience in your specialty so a lot of RN's will do Per Diem while waiting to get an assignment!

Cheryl, Glad you've recovered! Most facilities require that you have experience in your specialty within the last 2 years.
