The demand for nurse practitioner jobs has increased over the last couple of years. A travel nurse practitioner who is licensed will typically work in a hospital assignment for a few months at a time,
And then they move onto a different hospital whether in their state or another state across the nation. There are even international travel NP positions available.
Hospitals like hiring traveling nurse practitioners as you will bring your experience and knowledge along with you which the hospital can benefit from.
