  • Legally reside in a NLC state.

  • Hold an active RN or LPN/VN nursing license in good standing.

  • Declare an NLC state as your primary state of residency.

  • Meet the licensure requirements in your home state. When working in a remote state, you will also be held accountable to the nurse practice act of the state where the patient is located or where practice occurs.

Healthcare facilities occasionally experience shortages in personnel due to seasonal fluctuations, expansion, holidays, and many other reasons. When this happens, they turn to travel nurse staffing companies like ALOIS Healthcare to recruit temporary nurses who can travel to their location to fill in for permanent staff.
