How to Answer

Different travel agencies have different ways of handling medical records that are required for the nurse's assignment sites. Keeping a portfolio of important medical

Professional Answer Examples
Answer example

"I always keep a portfolio of essential documents such as copies of my birth certificate, driver's license, current TB test, and immunization record. This makes it easier for both myself and the hiring agent when documents need to be reviewed."

Answer example

"Experienced: "I have to admit, I learned the hard way when I first began travel nursing. I now keep a portfolio with me in my travel bag at all times. I keep copies of my birth certificate, immunization record, current TB skin test result, and driver's license. I always keep my nurse's license with me for an interviewer or staffing member to view and witness, as well."
