The Professional Association of Nurse Travelers serves as a comprehensive educational resource for Healthcare Travelers in the United States. Our larger vision is to improve the conditions for Healthcare Travelers, hospitals and patients.  The Association identifies issues of concern to nurse travelers, researches solutions and defines standards that foster safe, healthy, and humane work environments.  Universal Implementation of Compact State licensure for nurses and mandated safe staffing ratios are two such important issues that can have a positive impact on working conditions and patient care. As a 501(c)(6) non-profit, the Association and its members are legally allowed to lobby Congress and state legislative bodies on issues and laws that impact our member constituent.
