How Emergency Department Interpreters are breaking down barriers Cultural diversity in the cities where travel nurses thrive in emergency room jobs is part and parcel to their exciting lifestyle. ER nurse jobs at American Traveler place registered nurses in travel and permanent emergency room jobs nationwide, from big urban cities to charming, small towns, so it’s hardly uncommon to treat patients with (LEP) limited English proficiency.emergency room nurse The U.S. Census Bureau reported an estimated 48.4 million Hispanic residents in 2009, making them the nation’s largest ethnic race or minority; thus, as a well-trained professional in emergency room nurse jobs, you’re likely to encounter your fair share of patients who’s native, and, in many cases only language is Spanish. Since much of this growth has taken place in states that attract registered nurses to great travel nursing jobs like bees to honey, those in Florida travel nursing jobs and California nursing jobs, especially, have come to rely on medical interpreters, known as ED interpreters in hospital emergency departments. American Traveler’s Clinical Coordinator Debbie Bacurin, R.N., a former Nurse Manager and veteran of emergency room jobs, says: “It can be very stressful for everyone involved when the hospital [+]

Enjoy the Nations Birthday in Washington, DC Lucky travel nurses or therapists in Washington DC should prepare to sample the many July 4th events this upcoming weekend.

Read about technical vs. professional nurse training and why it matters Its been said there’s more than one way to skin a cat. The same might be true of seeking licensure as a registered nurse; those on track to a permanent or travel nursing career can achieve success in several different ways—the interesting part of that statement being, no matter your chosen path to licensure, the examination at the end of your nurse training is exactly the same. The options for students interested in nursing jobs break down into these avenues: you can get a four-year nursing degree, or bachelor of science (in nursing) and be deemed a “professional nurse”; you can get an associate's degree, which takes two to three years—or you can go to a diploma school for about three years. It so happens that community colleges produce more than half of the country's new nurses; not surprising considering it’s the fastest and least expensive way to become an RN; should you go this route, you are deemed a “technical nurse” and may not get the same preferential treatment in hiring as professional and graduate nurses. The encouraging news for those new to [+]

In the late 80's, a TV commercial starring the elderly woman who cried, "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up! generated wide-spread awareness that senior citizens are prone to nasty spills. We were relieved it was just an actress and that the pendant she wore, “Lifecall”, dispatched 911. Unfortunately, in real life, falls among the elderly are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries. It is estimated that 30% of people over age 65 will fall each year. New studies show that high blood pressure—a condition more likely to appear in older people—can alter the flow of blood in the brain and lead to falls. Fortunately, physical therapy is foremost among prescribed methods of treatment and rehabilitation for seniors. Because the elderly represent some of the most vulnerable patients, many of them receive help when physical therapists call on them at home in home health nursing jobs. Ironically, “home sweet home” can be a dangerous place for the elderly, as over half the falls treated in ERs report they occurred inside the victim’s house. Physical therapists can decrease these grim numbers by counseling their patients, and helping them fall-proof their homes. Here, we offer room-by-room tips on fall-proofing. In order to [+]
