The second case of Ebola has been reported in the United States; as many already know, the patient is a registered nurse working at a Dallas, Texas hospital, who cared for a man who succumbed to Ebola earlier this month. The RN is now being treated in isolation and is in stable condition; like so many registered nurses, this critical care RN, who has been identified by the media, is known for treating her patients with compassion and doing her job with great integrity. Thousands of people, American Traveler among them, are wishing her a safe and expedient recovery. Clinical Manager of American Traveler, Deborah Bacurin, RN adds, “We want to assure all of our healthcare providers that we are here to assist them in any way that we can. We respect and have a great deal of admiration for all that they do every day, not just during this situation. We do ask that they fall back on their Infection Control practices and training, and review their current facilities’ policies and procedures. The best place to go for the most accurate and up to date information about Ebola is the CDC website.” Watch Dr. Thomas Frieden, CDC Director, explain improved training and protocol [+]

Every year RNs matriculate in fast track nursing programs all over the country—and some of these graduates have this in common: they’re over 40-years-old. According to a **2010 report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the average age of RNs at graduation is higher—good news as we face a shortage of more than 900,000 registered nurses by 2030. Beyond the statistics, morale among mature nurses is extraordinary, especially among Phyllis O., telemetry RN working as a travel nurse in San Antonio, Texas. American Traveler sat down with Phyllis—or rather, she took time out from her exciting travels out West, to take our call. This is what she had to say.

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.

What do national public service organizations, healthcare associations, and government agencies have in common this month? They are all working together to increase awareness, raise revenue and eventually find a cure for Breast Cancer—and who could be more interested in making strides this October than the registered nurses who treat, counsel and, in many cases, know breast cancer survivors? If you have a story to share, wish to donate, or want to walk in a local event, please visit nbcam.org for the resources you’ll need to get started. With the numbers behind diagnoses of breast cancer, it’s no wonder foundations like Susan G. Komen and the American Cancer Association have been working tirelessly since the 1980s. More women die of breast cancer each year, than they do from AIDS, TB and malaria combined. Thankfully, “making strides” is more than words, creating a sweeping effort in fundraising and research that has led to a 98% survival rate for women who receive cancer treatment before the disease spreads beyond the breast.

ICU jobs are going places. Just ask Pamela Jo, an R.N. who joined American Traveler this month to embark on a travel nursing job in Alaska. A true adventurer, Pamela Jo set off for her first ever travel nurse job in her car, enjoying a scenic road trip that took her from her old home in Alma, Arkansas, through Canada, and eventually to Anchorage where her new Alaska travel nurse job has commenced. What might the best thing about this journey be? Pamela Jo was able to share it with her kids, who joined her on the road trip and helped her get settled in housing close to her ICU job at the hospital Learn more about free private housing by clicking on travel nurse job benefits.
