The travel nurse lifestyle is ideal for nearly everyone, even registered nurses and allied healthcare professionals with young children. Here’s a peak at what top RN job locations have to offer you, your family—even your pets. Arizona Nursing Jobs Are Simply Breathtaking: Travel nursing careers here distinguish themselves, not just in top notch hospitals and rehab facilities, but in what they can offer visitors and residents. Because travel nursing offers plenty of flex time, it’d be remiss not to take the family out on excursions to other worldly places like Lake Powell, Tanque Verde Ranch and the Sonoran Desert, with over 100 horses to ride! Arizona is a wonderful mix of urban and natural delights, in cities like Phoenix (don’t miss the Arizona Science Center) and Scottsdale, not to mention breathtaking landscapes like the Grand Canyon. Family Memories Shine in California Nursing Jobs: Travel nursing in the Golden State creates warm memories for people of all ages and stages. Whether you’re taking your own photo or it’s a group shot, Mount Shasta makes a magnificent backdrop; shop and dine at the foot of this legendary mountain, or delight in other northern California hot spots like the Napa Valley or San Francisco.

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. Nurse staffing agencies help health professionals stay current in their specialties, [+]

Healthcare professionals interested in traveling extensively, working in R.N. jobs available in all 50 U.S. States, need to have their travel nursing documentation in perfect order, i.e., driver’s license, social security card, CERTS, professional licenses and more must be sent to American Traveler consultants for processing; then the next phase can begin—accepting an employment offer for a travel nursing career! Living in a technical age makes that task super easy, so no need to fret—use these tips about phone apps to get started. The Camscanner or Geniusscan for iPhones and Androids makes images of scanned documents so clear and sharp that your future healthcare employer will accept them—whereas hazy photos from your smartphone will be rejected by most hospitals.  Knowing what a welcome convenience the camscanner is, American Traveler reviewed the versions for Androids and iPhones, and found that they work quite well converting pictures to PDFs, sorting, sharing, etc. The best news of all is that almost all of the ones listed here are free!

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.

Details on the American Traveler Spring Appreciation Party Wednesday, March 14th was no ordinary hump day for American Traveler. It just happened to be the date of our annual appreciation party for R.N.s and corporate staff. Travel nurses enjoy a Florida spring appreciation party, and it was our pleasure to see the return of wonderful stories about the travel nurse lifestyle and other rewards found along the nursing career path. Our guests came together in Boynton Beach, where good food and camaraderie passed the night.

Meet Cindy Burbatt, R.N. and her Pets American Traveler had the pleasure of checking in with a new member of our travel nursing staff, Cindy Burbatt, R.N. who shared some of the details of her first travel nurse job in Kansas City, Missouri. We talked with Cindy on the eve of her birthday. She was full of excitement for the road trip planned the following morning, departing from North Carolina en route to the heart of the Midwest. As the mother of three grown children, Cindy decided it was the right time to change up her 16-year background as a permanent staff telemetry/med surge nurse by accepting a travel nurse job in America’s heartland. While the truck she drives may not be anything that unusual for a R.N. moving to Kansas City, one standout detail is the 17ft. long trailer attached. It accommodates her longstanding and beloved pets, George and Ash; these are Cindy’s horses, and during the car trip to Missouri they’ll be staying in farms sprinkled throughout various states—places Cindy found through an online network called Horse Motel. When they arrive in Kansas City, Cindy will take up residence in a townhome, compliments of American Traveler’s private housing arrangement. George [+]
