I am an LVN. Can an LVN/LPN travel?
Thank you, Doug
Although there are some positions open for LVNs far and away the most and the best spots are for RNs. LVN/LPN travel nursing is a difficult field due to assignment availability. Difficult but not impossible!It’s important as an LVN traveler to be open to less desirable locations, be willing to go where there are jobs available and be flexible in the type of facility/unit you are willing to work. Check out this recent interview with LPN Travel Nurse Cheryl.
I hope that this helps to answer your questions.
