Arizona Travel Nurse Saves Drowning Girl

CPR proves handy while neighbors call 911

Mother Baby Travel Nurse and an American Traveler, Susan W. revived a drowning five-year-old girl in June after pulling her from an apartment complex pool and administering CPR. Paramedics at the scene told KOLD News reporters in Tucson that Susan’s quick response and CPR training saved the girl’s life. According to 911 calls, the girl had been underwater for about two minutes.

“Saving this girl’s life changed mine. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to know CPR. It seemed like hours before the little girl came to life, but she did, and who knows what great things she’ll do for this world.” - American Traveler Susan W., RN, on assignment in Tucson Arizona.

Travel Nursing Jobs in the Southwest Offer Extraordinary Opportunity

Dear Travel Nurse Professionals,

On behalf of the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association (AzHHA), I would like to take a moment to welcome you to Arizona or ask you to take a few minutes of your time to consider a travel nurse job in one of our many exceptional hospitals.

Arizona is a state that offers perhaps as much variety and opportunity for travel nurses as any state in the union. From the excitement of a major city (Phoenix being the sixth largest in the country), to the beauty and majesty of our mountain ranges and national parks, Arizona is a state rich with choices for any travel nurse.

Coordinators at American Traveler are the primary liaison between our hospital clients, healthcare professionals and the American Traveler corporate staff.  Our efforts are focused on recruiting the best candidates for our client's posted open positions while providing the highest level of customer service. 

Travel nursing professionals can accept the challenge of working in a large city teaching hospital in Arizona or choose the unique and equally rewarding environment of a rural critical access hospital. Whatever your travel nurse interests and preferences, Arizona has it.

Having moved from the east coast a short time ago, I can say without question that it is an extraordinary place to live and work. There is no other place in this wonderful country that can match Arizona… none.

You really need to try it. Travel nurses love it here!

I trust you will make the decision to come out and visit us in order to care for the wonderful residents of Arizona.

Thanks and God Bless,

Peter L. Heck

Director of Workforce and Staffing Services Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association

Patient care innovation in Arizona

Most travel nurses will tell you that its fantastic to work at a facility focused on positive patient outcomes. It’s a major reason why so many choose to work at Arizona hospitals.

  • Patient flow programs implemented in hospitals across the state have resulted in improved ED “ door-to-doc” times and reduced waiting times for critical patients.
  • Leading-edge clinical computer care systems make surgery schedules more efficient and streamline the managing of patient records.
  • Intensive Care technologies enable doctors and nurses to “virtually” be at the besides of dozens of patients simultaneously, improving response times and consults.  
  • Robotics in the OR deliver the benefits of minimally invasive procedures, slashing patient recovery times in half through reduced trauma to the body.
  • Simulation and education training programs for medical staff provide modern educational tools for travel nurses to learn new techniques.

American Traveler staffs four teaching hospitals in Phoenix and one in Tucson. “Where travel nurses can advance in the practice.” Free CEUs

What is desert living all about?

As an American Traveler, desert living means luxury accommodations and an exceptional lifestyle.

The many unique aspects to living the in the desert, such as the arid climate, fascinating landscape, southwestern culture and outdoor recreational spots, are very appealing to travel nurses from all walks of life.

The rainy season, or 'monsoon season' occurs during June, July and August and packs plenty of wind, rain and dust. Sunsets are remarkable in the desert, and when the temperature drops to 110 degrees in summer, you're thankful for a nice cool day.

American Traveler, deluxe, private housing accommodations come furnished and equipped with full kitchens and bath, laundry facilities, private balconies and swimming pools in many exclusive locations.

“You Gotta Love the Outdoors!”

There’s a lot to do and many remarkable sights to see in Arizona. From Grand Canyon National Park to the Painted Desert and Monument Valley, the earth and sky take your breathe away and elevate your spirit to a whole new plateau. Phoenix, Tucson, Scottsdale, Sedona, Flagstaff and other area towns and cities are alive with outdoor events and cultural celebrations year-round.

Many travel nurses come to this part of the country to enjoy mountain biking, canoeing, white-water rafting, camping, rock climbing and other extreme sport adventures. Arizona is a “compact state,”  so licensure is easy and seamless. Countless Arizona travel nurses never end up leaving because the people are so genuine and the lifestyle so physically and spiritually fulfilling.
