Before you hit the road for your next travel nurse or travel therapy assignment, you must be licensed to practice in that state. At Host Healthcare, we will help you and even provide license reimbursements. However, it’s your responsibility to complete the applicable license application process. To help you, we created the below state license cheat sheet. Print out this page or bookmark it. We will continue to update this page as states update their license terms.
