Traveling Nurse RN at American Traveler Stephanie Clark
.Stephanie is currently on her fourteenth travel nursing assignment with American Traveler. She's a 29-year-old Emergency Room RN who's been on the road for four years and travels with two cat friends, Karlie and Smokey. Until she sees all the sights, admits the Critical Care nurse, she has no intention of settling down. "I don't know exactly what the future holds," said Stephanie, "but for now, I'm travel nursing."

American Cruise to the islands!Traveler High Pay & Benefits allowed Stephanie to treat her family to an All Expense Paid Disney Cruise
As a result of American Traveler high pay and benefits, Stephanie was able to treat her family to an all expense paid Disney Cruise to the "Private Island" and to ports of call Cozumel and Grand Cayman. Her Kentucky parents had never been out of the country - and never on a cruise - and were fascinated by the activities, food and overall experience of being on the ship. "They always dreamed of doing something like this," she said, "but never got the opportunity. Had I not been a travel nurse, we probably would've never gone."
Travel nursing roundtable yields favorable results for American Traveler
Chesapeake Registry Program a huge success for participating travel nurse agencies   
- Cathy Trumbull, RN, Clinical Coordinator
Cathy Trumbull, RN, Clinical Coordinator with husband Tracey!
Her energy and spirit set the pace for travel nurses everywhere!

Travel nurse representatives from around the country gathered in Washington D.C. in September to discuss workforce recruitment and retention needs for hospitals in Maryland, Washington D.C. and Delaware. This year, I was chosen to represent American Traveler at the 2007 Chesapeake Registry Travel Nursing & Allied Health Roundtable and am proud to report amazing outcomes.

With more than 100 attendees, the atmosphere was buzzing with ideas and solutions targeted at enhancing the relationships between hospital contracts and participating travel nurse agencies. My goal at this year's roundtable event was to share American Traveler successes with our contact hospitals, and find ways to optimize customer service and expand travel nurse staffing resources.

Needless to say, the venue was packed with high-energy speakers and industry professionals all sharing a common goal, to improve the quality and availability of travel nursing staff in the Chesapeake Region. There was even a segment entitled "Humor in the Workplace," which I'm sure we could all use a little more of. As an RN and Clinical Coordinator for American Traveler, I am confident that this year's Chesapeake Registry Roundtable will bring more opportunity, and possibly even higher pay, to travel nurses signing on with American Traveler. Apply now.


It's an Honor to be Recognized by the Registry

Chesapeake Registry Program The Chesapeake Registry Program carefully screens travel nurse staffing agencies to ensure quality staffing compliance for participating area hospitals. The Chesapeake Registry is one of the few organizations in the country to establish an ongoing system of staffing compliance through on-site audits. These audits include verification of the travel nurse agencies' records on education, work experience, skill level and references, and the most recent acute-care hospital employment.

"Every year American Traveler files are audited by the Chesapeake Registry and every year we're ranked high in customer satisfaction and attention to detail!" - Robert Bok, CEO American Traveler.
Best Kept Travel Nurse Secret 2008
.Travel Nursing Gem- Hilo
OT $38.50/hr
Cruise to Hilo, Hawaii!Hilo is a small scale university town on the Big Island of Hawaii and is alive with bookstores, coffee shops, unique emporiums and boutiques. The locals are very friendly here and enjoy sharing age-old island traditions and lore with visiting travel nurses. Hilo fisherman bring fresh Wahoo, tuna and mahi mahi to the docks daily and over 100 local farmers and crafters sell produce, wares, gift items and tropical flowers at the Hilo Farmers Market year-round.

Days on the beach are delightful with ocean dips that are healing to the soul; the tropical nightlife in Hilo is described as 'soothing' by our Travel Nurses experts. Chocolate-dipped shortbreads from Big Island Candies are worth the trip alone and TopCoffees.com says the Hilo Coffee Mill roasts some of the finest beans in all of Hawaii. You can even buy them green to roast at home. Some travel nurses leave for Hilo never to return.

.Travel Nursing Gem- Sitka
L&D $36.00/hr
Alaskan mountain lakeSometimes referred to as Sitka by the Sea, this Alaskan coastal island was settled by the native Tlingit Indians hundreds of years ago and is influenced by 19th Century Russia in both architecture and culture. It's situated in the Alexander Archipelago - where it doesn't get much warmer than 60 degrees in summer or much colder than 30 degrees in winter - making it temperate and convenient for travel nurses to explore.

Sitka is the largest city in the U.S. in terms of area and is home to Mount Edgecumbe, the 3,200 feet dormant stratovolcano located south of the city on Kruzof Island. Polar Bears roam Sitka and the landscape is rugged and wild. Day cruises and guided tours of the Alaskan countryside are popular travel nurse attractions and outdoor recreation opportunities are virtually unlimited. There's always a fire burning in the home and in the heart in Sitka, Alaska.
