Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to your questions about Colorado Travel Nursing Jobs with Medical Solutions and Travel Nursing in general.

Simply apply here. You can also call us at 1.866.633.3548 and speak with a recruiter, who can answer your questions and send you an information packet. All we need to begin is your application and resume. Once we receive your information, we can begin discussing potential assignments that fit your profile. When you find a job you want, your recruiter will submit you for the job and walk you through the process from there.
Most assignments are 13 weeks in length, but we’ve seen them as short as four weeks and as long as 24. You are obligated to finish your assignment as contracted, but there is no contract binding you to work more assignments afterward. You can take a new assignment right after your last or take a break. It’s all up to you!
Many states are in the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), which allows you reciprocal rights to practice in compact states. If you need to obtain a new state license, your Recruiter can tell you exactly how much time is necessary to apply for it and the cost. If a new license is required for your assignment, Medical Solutions will reimburse you for the cost!
