About the Author:

My name is Jeff Long. I’m the Marketing Director at Medical Solutions, one of the leading travel nursing companies. I have never been a nurse and am not a recruiter. I have worked at Medical Solutions for over five years and think it is a great company that has a lot to offer nurses and allied health professionals interested in a travel career. I do post just a small sampling of travel nursing jobs from Medical Solutions, but mostly I write about travel nursing. On this site you will not be recruited on this blog (unless you specifically inquire about traveling with Medical Solutions then I will forward your info to a Recruiter). I understand that you are reading and/or commenting on this blog purely for informational purposes and I want you to enjoy that experience My job is to help you meet your career goals by sharing information, advice and the benefits of travel nursing with you.

    My wife Janet and I are considering writing a weekly article here at called Traveling and Technology. The topics would be regarding computer hardware and software for healthcare travelers. How to make life easier without getting to technicial.

    Janet is a travel nurse and I am a semi retired computer technician.

    If you think this a good or bad idea let us know. Any ideas for topics?
