For healthcare professionals and their employers, statistics coming from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics represent both good news and the challenge of matching supply with demand.  The American Association of Colleges of Travel Nursing Jobs and RecessionNursing is among the fray, calling for an expansion of enrollment in nursing schools, in the hope that this will help meet an increased need for healthcare services. Talented nursing graduates across the U.S.A. are within reach of hot nursing jobs, with highly flexible schedules and competitive incomes that erase debt and leave R.N.s poised for a comfortable retirement. Whether R.N.s travel or work in permanent jobs, current employment figures will establish an upward trajectory in their careers between now and 2020. The BLS is projecting a steady spike in healthcare jobs throughout the rest of this decade, with an annual employment rise of 3%; that’s just ahead of the second strongest job market in construction. While this news is excellent, filling the BLS’s projected increase of 712,000 nursing jobs (by 2020) will require a fundamental improvement in nursing education, both before and after R.N.s receive their licenses.

This is what she recounted to us about her experience: American Traveler: We’re so glad to have an opportunity to ask you about this great nurse/patient experience. We understand that it happened during your first travel nursing job, correct? April: Yes. I’ve been an R.N. for a very long time, but had never worked in a travel nursing job before.

It’s Hurricane Season, June 1st—November 30th! Here’s What You Can Do to Prepare For many healthcare professionals in nursing and therapy jobs across the United States, hurricane season registers as a far-away news story; however, for those living near the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico, hurricanes and tropical storms pose a very real threat—especially as Hurricane Season gets underway. National Hurricane Preparedness Week, May 26 through June 1st, is a good time to take stock of emergency resources in your home and community. These are a few guidelines for setting up an emergency plan. Build up Your Water Supply: A gallon of water per person, per day is recommended. Having a 2 week supply of bottled water on hand is highly recommended. In preparation for a serious storm, it’s a good idea to cleanhurricane season tips and fill your bath tub, in case a power loss cuts water off. You can use the water to wash up, as well as flush toilets. Make Sure you Have Plenty of Food and a Can Opener: A supply of non-perishable food that could get a family through at least 5 days is recommended. Consider canned nuts, beans, fruits, vegetables, soft [+]

Registered nurses make up the largest segment of the healthcare workforce, which is why shortage predictions from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)* point to a potential crisis. The BLS is projecting a huge deficit in qualified R.N.s to fill nursing jobs between now and 2025. The reasons for this are attributed, not just to the surge in Baby Boomers seeking medical care, but in the imminent retirement of the nurses treating them.

nursing shortage news

Over the next 20 years, the average age of the R.N. will increase and the size of the nursing workforce plateau, as many nurses retire. The hope for filling these vacant positions is that nurses coming into them have strong clinical backgrounds, in graduate and baccalaureate programs in accredited nursing schools. As it stands now, many American colleges are struggling to expand enrollment in nursing programs, and are getting help in collaborative efforts made by company partnerships, grants, and legislative initiatives focused on hiring more qualified nursing staff—enough to meet the needs of the current population. 30 million plus Americans have been added to insurance roles as healthcare reform takes effect. BLS’ Employment Projections (2010-2020) released in February [+]

There is a feeling of helplessness that overwhelms parents when their child is admitted to the hospital as well as a feeling of hope that the NICU, PICU, and Pediatric nurses will nurture them back to health. Steps are being taken, however, to make this traumatic experience more comfortable for the patient and their families. With the help of the non-profit group, Facilities Guidelines Institute, several hospitals have invested to upgrade their children’s facilities in order to accommodate parents and elevate the healing process of children. One may think of it as holistic medical treatment for the entire family. Children’s Hospitals are Evolving In June 2012, Nationwide Children’s Hospital located in Columbus,Ohio opened a $783 million facility that provides private rooms for everyone, an atrium full of giant carved animals and a clubhouse for siblings and parents. A recent report focused on the physical environment of a hospital and warned that the noise and confusion can increase stress and anxiety. Noise reduction solutions helps to alleviate some of the problem and a proper interior design involving colors, furniture and carpet can actually promote the healing process by creating a safe and soothing environment. While physical changes are costly and parental involvement can be cumbersome, [+]
