Nurse practitioner programs take two or more years after earning a bachelor of science in nursing. On average, nurse practitioners earn $115,800 per year. They have a wider scope of practice than nurses without masters degrees and are able to prescribe medicine.
Travel nurses are registered nurses who fill short term positions where hospitals and clinics are unable to hire locally. Unlike full-time staff nurses, travel nurses are often employed by staffing agencies and not the hospital or facility where they work.
