flu shot clinicEvery year corporate team members diligently remind healthcare professionals about the benefits of an annual flu vaccine.  This is why, in solidarity with our traveling nurses and allied healthcare professionals, and in support of our employees’ health, we made it extra easy for corporate employees to get a flu shot this year. We did this by sponsoring an on-site flu clinic at our corporate headquarters in Florida. It was the first event of its kind, and so well received that we plan to make it an annual affair! Our thanks go out to our corporate employees, who rolled up their sleeves so willingly.  A visiting CVS pharmacist and technician helped everything run smoothly—no surprise, there, as CVS is well known for providing flu shots at a low cost. As everyone knows, getting more people vaccinated is a goal of the CDC and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; they would like to see more healthcare workers outside the nursing sector follow the R.N.s’ example when it comes to getting vaccinated.  Click on Vaccine Information Statement to find out everything you need to know to protect your health this flu season.

Recent Study Released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation BOCA RATON, FL 11/13/12 – Nurse staffing agency American Traveler emphasizes the need for culturally-sensitive nurses in areas of the country prone to diversity. Twenty-year nurse study positions traveling nurses as more ethnically and racially diverse and capable of treating disparate patient populations. For hospitals and health systems in parts of the country where nurses aren’t as plentiful, travel nursing or contract staff nurses may be the answer, according to a recent study* released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Authors examined registered nurse (RN) data from years 1984 to 2008 to find that RNs contracted through nurse staffing agencies have education levels similar to permanent nurse staff and are more ethnically and racially diverse.

Of the Bureau’s published list of 30 occupations projected to have the most job growth through 2018, registered nurses, therapists and physicians rise to the top, along with home health aides, personal care attendants and nurses aides.

Client side demand at the agency is up more than 50 percent, which means nursing jobs - and jobs for physical therapists, occupational therapists and other allied health jobs – are indeed on the rise.

The competition is rigorous, as many healthcare jobs professionals who were laid off due to economic woes will be looking for their jobs back, and many of them are ultra-qualified and immediately hirable. What’s a healthcare jobs seeker to do? Call a qualified agency, says American Traveler recruitment VP Mary Kay Hull, as high-level agencies are positioned well with top hospitals and outpatients centers to immediately deliver qualified healthcare jobs candidates [+]
