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 more.

Nomad welcomes all nurses that are licensed to work in the United States, including all Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses. All nurses must be graduates of an accredited nursing program in the U.S. or Canada, and must have a valid license or certification.

Minimum experience requirements vary based on the medical employer and/or job location, but generally Registered Nurses have 10-18 months of work experience. Licensed Practical Nurses have more limited travel opportunities, and may need 5+ years of experience.
What if I don’t have the necessary state license for a job?
Nomad automates state license applications. If there’s enough time before the job starts, we’ll get your license for you.

Nope. Nomad is all about independence. Work as much or as little as you like.
