While taking night shifts comes with the territory of travel nursing, it can be a challenge to transition from your normal schedule, particularly when you’re in a new assignment in a different time zone.
As a travel nurse, you spend most of your time caring for others, leaving little time for managing your personal finances or long-term financial fitness.
Reducing all the bureaucracy, paperwork and burden during the time of a crisis or national public emergency just makes reasonable sense.
Cross Country Healthcare recently presented a webinar entitled COVID & Compassion Fatigue, cohosted by Cross Country Healthcare’s Chief Clinical Officer, Hank Drummond, and Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Dean of Nursing, Safiya George, PhD, FAANP.
Cross Country Nurses’ very own Nabiha Saad was supposed to travel overseas in March to spend a couple of months visiting her kids.
I feel tired and stressed out lately, and know I should address it; but as a nurse, I feel like right now is the wrong time for me to take a break from things. I don’t want to let my coworkers or patients down. What should I do?
I really appreciate this question in these very unusual times. During this pandemic, nurses are being pushed to edge with increased volumes, workload and a multitude of various stressors.
Nurses Week 2020 is just around the corner, and we’re celebrating you by making sure you celebrate you. Our ‘Self-Care Isn’t Selfish Contest’ is all about reminding you to engage in a little “me time” whenever you have the opportunity.
I am traveler nurse and my unit has been closed during this COVID-19 crisis. What does it mean to be redirected? Help me understand.
The reason for the closure is really two-fold. One is to conserve the PPE supplies. Secondly, we are trying to limit exposure to COVID-19 in the acute care settings.
As indicated in your question above, this is a national crisis! Nurses are on the frontline workforce day in and day out. Your skill sets are needed in a variety of ways and measures.
I really appreciate this question. During these unprecedented times, nurses are needed and relied upon more than ever before.
