1 of 30 Travel Nurse Interview Questions and Answers Written by Darby Faubion

How to Answer

Being flexible with the schedule you are willing to work is always a plus, especially for a travel nurse. Being upfront with the interviewer about what schedule suits your preference could help prevent conflict later on. It is easier to plan a schedule you can agree on than it is to fix problems that arise due to fear of being rejected. Be honest and direct.
