Jessica G. and Hayley B., both Emergency Room R.N.s, are a travel nursing team with American Traveler! Young, energetic and committed to giving patients their all, these two ER nurses sat down with American Traveler to discuss what it’s like to go on travel nursing assignments as a duo! travel nurses in New Orleans AT:  We understand that this is an important day for you two.  You are just starting your third consecutive travel nursing job with us, right? Jessica and Hayley: Yes, today was Orientation at our new hospital in Texas. Our first assignment was in Arizona, near an Indian Reservation, next came Washington D.C. and now we are recuperating from a nice side trip to New Orleans -- a slight detour we couldn’t resist taking before starting the Texas nursing job.   AT: That’s quite an itinerary! Thanks to the Facebook album cataloguing your adventures in Washington D.C., and other places, it was easy to imagine we were along for the ride. It looks like you’ve been friends forever. Did you know each other before you became a travel nursing team?

This Web page is loaded with useful information and statistics for consumers -- coaches, parents and others -- including the basics of how to recognize a possible brain injury or concussion or what to do if a concussion occurs. But the site is also an invaluable tool for the ER nurses and other healthcare professionals, too. Let’s say you just took an American Traveler assignment for a pedriatric ICU job in Cincinatti, or for a critical care job in Hudson, FL (these jobs are actually available right now!) -- and a suspected brain-injury [+]
