I am starting to research travel nursing as a possibility to travel and see the US. I have 30+ years of perioperative experience but have not worked in 18 months as I had several family members ill. Should I obtain a job locally for 1-2 years then review travel nursing again? or is there a company which will review the experience prior to the time away which I have? Thank you

Facilities and Health Systems require 1-3 years of recent experience in the specialty that you wish to travel (this is not an agency mandate). It would be best to get back into a clinical setting in order to obtain a travel contract.
