Medical Traveler Compliance & Licensure

Being a Long Term Care traveler, LPN traveler, or CNA traveler can help you become the medical professional you’ve always wanted to be, but what if your dream travel assignment is asking for certifications you don’t have? Fusion is here to help find the right training, licensing and certifications, as well as financial assistance.

Degrees and Certifications

You’ve got licensing and certification questions. We’ve got the answers. Fusion makes getting compliant for the states you want to travel to a lot easier. Even though degrees and certifications depend on your modality and specialty, Fusion’s compliance experts work with your recruiter and the facility to make sure that you have all relevant credentials required for our traveling LTC, traveling LPN, and traveling CNA jobs.

Compliance Requirements

Some of your compliance requirements are the same across the board, but there are others that will depend on your Long Term Care specialty, LPN specialty, or CNA specialty.


The three parts of compliance

  • Occupational health records: Required immunizations and health examinations
  • Documentation: Tax forms, insurance paperwork, and licenses
  • Testing: Certifications, online trainings, and workplace safety exams


I remember when I was growing up, I had a passion for helping people. I always knew I'd end up doing something in the medical field. I have more than five years experience in the CNA field. The day I called Fusion Medical Staffing and inquired about a travel CNA job, I spoke with Matt Waters. We had a long talk about CNA travel, and I automatically knew I would soon be on a awesome and amazing journey. I remember telling Matt that I was ready to head out ASAP, and I knew I was the right fit for this type of work. We got stuff rolling, and I got assigned to a wonderful recruiter named Becca Jacobs. She is very outgoing, helpful, and caring. This was my first travel assignment, so I was kind of nervous, but everyone I spoke with at Fusion really made me feel good about this journey I was about to set out on. I was happy and excited that I was offered a 26-week-long contract. So far this journey has been amazing, and it is very joyful meeting new people, building friendships, discovering new places, doing new things, and building memories that will last a lifetime. Knowing that I'm making a difference in other peoples’ lives makes me feel good. Remember to enjoy the small things in life and always remember that days can get hard and lonely, but in the end you can look back on your journey.

How does the pay work?

You will be paid a taxable hourly rate and then given a tax-free stipend for food and housing. Typically, nurses will take around $20 per hour taxable to maximize those stipends, but we are able to mix and match pay a number of different ways. Pay packages will always look different depending on the area you are working.

Why should I choose Fusion over other travel companies?

We like to let our travelers and reputation speak for us. We strive to give the ultimate long-term experience and not just “sell” you on a job. We want you to be part of the family for the long haul. We are transparent and committed to our travelers.

What do I do if I don’t like it at my new assignment?

Being a traveler isn’t just an adventure, it is also a commitment. Just like any job you apply for or contract you sign, you are committing your time. Fortunately, three months goes by pretty quickly. We will always discuss the details of the job prior to even submitting your profile.
