This is my first introduction and experience with a Travel Nursing Organization. To be brief, I was contacted by my recruiter, Elyssabeth, who explained the entire process of becoming a nurse for Trusted Nurse Staffing. She answered all of my questions in detail and with kindness. I have completed half of my contract in Virginia, working in an ICU unit. In a very short time, I have gained the nurse's trust and was adopted into their fold. It has been a very rewarding experience. I have only positive things to say about Elyssabeth and Trusted Nurse Staffing! It was my lucky day when Elyssabeth contacted me. Altogether, a very rewarding and gratifying experience!!! Thank you Elyssabeth and Trusted Nurse Staffing.

The Enhanced Nursing Licensure Compact (eNLC) allows for nurses living in compact states to practice in all other compact states with a single multistate license.
Luckily, Virginia is a member of the eNLC. This means if you hold a nursing license in another compact, you won’t need to obtain a new license to practice in Virginia.
Alternatively, if you have a nursing license from a state within the U.S. that is not a participating member of the eNLC, you may qualify for licensure by endorsement.
To apply for licensure by endorsement, you will need:
Applications are exclusively accepted online.
It’s okay if this can seem like a lot of paperwork and tedious file gathering. Luckily, you have your Trusted Nurse Staffing recruiter to help you walk through everything. Plus, we will even reimburse your application fees.
It’s smart to want to know what earning potential is like as a travel nurse in Virginia.
The average pay for travel nurse jobs in Virginia is 9% lower than the national average, but the cost of living compared to other travel nursing jurisdictions is also low.
The average travel nurse salary in Virginia is $1,741/week.
On top of your weekly pay, financial perks like housing stipends, meal and travel allowances, bonuses, and more may be included depending on which of the travel nursing agencies in Virginia you choose to partner with.
Your earning potential could also be impacted by your assignment location in Virginia and your nursing specialty. Both will play a role in how much money you end up taking home each month. Neonatal ICU nurses, for example, will typically see higher pay than those with medical/surgical or psychiatric travel nurse jobs in Virginia.
Finding a place to live as a travel nurse in Virginia (or anywhere for that matter) can feel daunting, but luckily, you don’t have to do it completely on your own. You can opt to:
Not sure which is the more stress-free option? Talk with your recruiter. They likely will have insights into the area you’re moving to and can help you decide which option will be best for you.
Your TNS recruiter can even connect you with other travel nurses also looking for someone to split the cost of the rent in the area if you’re looking for a more cost-efficient option.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Virginia state government is working together to ensure that healthcare providers are available to help patients in the areas of the state that are hardest hit.

On top of the potential for higher pay, your contracted facility may offer additional incentives like certain shifts if the demand is high.
