As a traveler, obtaining licenses in multiple states can open up new opportunities for fulfilling assignments and higher pay rates. Maintaining multiple licenses is an investment that will give you expansive choices when you are looking for your next travel assignment.
States with the highest-paying assignments, like California and New York, can take more than a month to process your application, so the sooner you start the process, the faster you can earn the pay you deserve.
Fastaff is committed to fueling your ambition and we offer licensing programs to help travelers become licensed in states they are not currently licensed in. Our team is well-versed in the various licensing systems and can help guide you through the process.

In order to work in a compact state, a nurse must have proof of residence in a compact state as well as a current, active RN license in that state. If you hold a compact license, you do not need to obtain licensure in any of the other participating compact states in order to work there.
