How is Nomad different?
Nomad is different because we’re the first network to empower
nurses and medical employers to connect directly for travel
nursing jobs, instead of working through a third party recruiter.
Nurses benefit from having full transparency on all job details
upfront, and they can earn higher incomes from medical employers
that save money on recruiter fees. Plus Nomad is 100% online,
meaning that there’s no paperwork or phone calls.
Do I have to pay anything to use this service?
Nope. Nomad is completely free for all nurses.
What is travel nursing?
Travel nurses help play a critical role to fill staffing gaps
at medical facilities nationwide. Travel nurses enjoy the freedom
and flexibility of traveling to diverse destinations, and also
benefit from career growth and generous salaries. In some cases,
travel nurses can earn more than permanent pay rates. Shifts are
often in periods of eight to 13 weeks or longer and practice
settings include hospitals, private practices, clinics, and
What types of nurses can join Nomad?
Nomad welcomes all nurses that are licensed to work in the
United States. All nurses must be graduates of an accredited
nursing program in the U.S. or Canada, and must have a valid
license or certification.
What experience is needed to be a travel nurse?
Minimum experience requirements vary based on the medical
employer and/or job location, but generally Registered Nurses are
required to have 2 years of work experience in specialty.
What if I don’t have the necessary state license for a job?
Nomad will reimburse for a new state license if there is enough
time before the job starts. This only applies for a new state
license in the state in which you are placed.
In which states can I find jobs on Nomad?
Nomad is simplifying the way nurses find jobs across the
country. You can find great jobs in states across the U.S.,
including in Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact States. We are moving
fast and adding more states often!
What is the Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC)?
Developed by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing,
the Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC) makes it easier for
nurses living in certain states to find travel nursing jobs across
states. If you are a nurse living in
of 29 states
, you are eligible to apply for a multi-state
nursing license to practice in all those states.
Do I need to make a minimum commitment to Nomad?
Nope. Nomad is all about independence. Work as much or as little
as you like.
What is the average pay?
Pay rates are given for each Nomad job upon login, and are
negotiable with medical employers.
How do I get paid?
All your payments are directly deposited into your bank account.
Everything is electronic and automatic. No paper checks.
Will my profile be visible to the public?
No. We take your privacy very seriously. Only Nomad-verified
employers will be able to see your information.
