Whereas the median salary for fireman and EMTs is somewhere between 30K and 50K a year,travel nurses can earn between $70,000 and $100,000depending on assignment.

Just as American Traveler hires only the best travel nurses and allied health professionals to staff top-rated hospitals across the U.S., the nation’s leading travel nurse firm is just as particular about who works at corporate. The company prides itself on hiring experts with diverse backgrounds and a penchant for detail.
Interestingly enough, the proportion of men to women working at American Traveler is similar to that of male nurses in the travel nursing field—roughly 10 percent. The men of American Traveler are a rare breed, because at any time they can find themselves surrounded by high-functioning female professionals driven to move operations forward. Although others may find this attribute intimidating, the men of AT consider it “paramount to success in healthcare staffing.”
Men and women work side-by-side in all departments at American Traveler: administration, accounting, operations, IT, recruiting, marketing, housing, payroll, and senior management. Clients can expect the men of AT to deliver the same impeccable service, detail, and results they’ve grown accustomed to from their female counterparts.
American Traveler CEO, Robert Bok expects a significant increase in the number of men entering the travel nursing profession over the next ten years. His team at corporate is rolling out a number of innovative business models that target both the staffing and clinical needs of employers and nurse candidates. The company is expanding horizontally and vertically, creating more jobs and securing its place as one of the largest privately held companies in the travel nurse industry.
“You’ll find more men coming on board as the travel nurse industry continues to grow,” said Bok. “Opportunity and success have lured men to an industry where jobs are plentiful and the pay and benefits are competitive.”

Travel Nurse Consultant – Jessalynn Haley
American Traveler expert consultant Jessalynn Haley is a people person from the get-go.
She's a graduate of Rutgers in New Jersey where she studied economics, psychology, and communications, and spent years
in hospitality management and as a wedding planner. American Traveler prides itself on hiring staff like Jessalynn
with diverse, well-rounded backgrounds.
She advises travel nurses to explore the highlights of travel on days off—to enjoy the landscape,
the people, and new things to do that may be unique to a certain part of the country.
"One of my favorite places to visit is Bar Harbor, Maine," she said. "It's a must to ride along the loop in Acadia Park and eat steamy, fresh-baked popovers at the
Jordan Pond House. Watching whales surface and plunge off the coast is a combination of excitement and serenity and an
experience found in only a few U.S. destinations."
Originally from Concord New Hampshire, the consummate recruiter has been in Florida now for two years
and has developed a passion for activities that get her "outside in the sunshine." Although
she and boyfriend Shawn are very busy with their respective careers, the two find time together
to enjoy the great outdoors.
Jessalynn says her life is enriched by the travel nurses and allied health professionals
employed by American Traveler. They share their worlds and experiences with her and have
taught her about places in the U.S. where she herself now longs to visit.
"I love being able to touch the lives of travel nurses," said Jessalynn. "My travelers know that I'm
there for them any time of day and I will strive to find them the assignments they want."
Jessalynn recalls a story about a Respiratory Therapist in Pennsylvania whose marriage was saved
by travel. The RT's husband had to leave town to find work and the two separated for months by
3300 miles and a lot of tears. As result of Jessalynn's diligence, the RT is now back with her
husband and employed in the town where he found work.
"Thanks to Jessalynn, my husband and I are now living much improved lives in Phoenix, Arizona,"
said RT, Maacah. "She truly has made me want to sign another contract with American Traveler."
"The ultimate experience is not just being a travel nurse for American Traveler. As a consultant I like to test my own limits with hang gliding over the everglades in South Florida. This is not for the faint of heart but an unforgettable ride!"
