Nursing State Licensure Information

Prior to taking any travel RN assignment, you’ll be required to be licensed to practice in that state.

In order to make this process as convenient as possible we have provided a chart below detailing each state’s nursing certification information. This information is based on the latest information we have gathered from each state’s Board of Nursing website and is subject to change at anytime. Medical Solutions is not responsible for any changes made to any state’s website. It is your responsibility to complete the Temporary License Application process to the corresponding state before you begin any travel nursing assignment. Click here for Board of Nursing contact information.

Licensure Reimbursement

We can assist you with the state licensing process and let you know the cost. If you need a license, Medical Solutions will reimburse you for the cost once you have been placed on assignment. You are eligible for one license reimbursement per assignment.
