Travel Nursing is Heart Healthy

February is American Heart Month

In the spirit of “American Heart Month,” travel nurse company American Traveler wants travel nursing professionals to treat their hearts right in 2007.

Avoid tobacco

Become more active

Choose good nutrition

Are the “ABCs” to a better life, reports the American Heart Association.

.

“The travel nurse lifestyle can be physically demanding,” said Clinical Coordinator, Cathy Trumbull, RN. “Sometimes working 12-hour shifts takes stamina and energy. And on top of work-related duties, travel nurses use their spare time to explore new surroundings. Hiking in national parks, canoeing, and biking are just a few of the action packed adventures” she said. “It is an adrenaline-packed career that requires endurance and a strong ticker.”

American Traveler encourages travel nurses to use the swimming pools, spas, and fitness centers that come with free private housing to exercise and stay fit, said Trumbull. “We also provide free medical and dental insurance to ensure early detection of risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease and heart attack.”

The travel nurse company recommends eating balanced meals to clients, and taking advantage of insurance benefits for regular check-ups and exams. “Even the early detection of gingivitis and gum disease can lead to a healthier heart,” said CEO, Robert Bok.

Bok said it’s no secret that nursing is a high-stress occupation. “But American Traveler benefits help travel nurses lower stress, build endurance, and live a healthy travel nurse lifestyle.”

Cutting back on foods with added sugars, consuming fewer before-bedtime calories, and “keeping an eye on portion size” are other ways travel nurses can reduce their chance of stroke or heart attack, says the CDC, emphasizing that physical activity is most important overall.  

“We’ve been told our travel nurses have the biggest hearts,” said Bok. “And we’ll do whatever it takes to keep them healthy!”

Meet your Travel Nurse Consultant

.American Traveler, Clinical Coordinator Cathy Trumbull, RN "is skilled at matching the right nurse professionals with the right travel nurse jobs." Prior to joining the American Traveler team, Cathy spent 20 years as a PEDS Triage Nurse, working NICU, and finally taking a position as a Nursing Supervisor. As a Clinical Coordinator for American Traveler, Cathy pre-screens and pre-qualifies travel nurses and allied health professionals by evaluating experience, skills, credentials, and clinical references. “My husband calls me the ‘Velvet Hammer,’” said Cathy. “I’m patiently persistent and I never give up.”

.

Cathy travels herself, trekking along the North Rim of the Grand Canyon last year and completing a tandem cycling tour of the Virginia Creeper Trail with her husband. “This year we’re scheduled to discover The Badlands, and pedal end-to-end on the Katy Trail,” she said.

The best advice Cathy gives to travel nurses is to take a genuine interest in meeting people while traveling. “There are an endless amount of amazing people to be met in every city and town,” she says. “And one of the greatest things about being a travel nurse is the endless and ever changing opportunities.

Cathy said the five years working at American Traveler has been a joy. It’s a company that combines knowledge, dedication, innovation, and graciousness for a superior travel nurse experience.

“Nothing makes my job more enjoyable than to have a Nurse Manager or Travel Nurse Contact share that one of our travelers has been a perfect fit in their department and they would like to extend a renewal offer.”

When asked what brings balance to her life, Cathy put her heartfelt appreciation and enjoyment of family & friends, and working and playing hard at the top of her list. “Oh, and a good nights sleep,” she said.
