Travel Nurses: The Heart and Sole of Healthcare


Nurses Fight Breast Cancer  and  Sore FeetBeing a nurse can be tough on your feet, with the long hours of st and ing and running around. There’s nothing worse than being on your feet all day and wearing uncomfortable shoes, this can only make the days seem longer than they really are. As a travel nurse or nurse in general, the number one thing to remember is that you want to be as comfortable as possible to be able to make it through the long and arduous days and it all begins with your feet.

Starting today and running through the end of the year, Dansko, a shoe company that specializes in clogs as well as heels, boots, s and als, wedges and flats, has partnered with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation offering an exclusive Dansko Pink Ribbon Professional Clog. Proceeds from every pair of Pink Ribbon Clogs sold between now and the end of the year (12/31/2010) will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® up to a maximum donation of $25,000.

Dansko Pink Ribbon Clog is available now from select retailers. Visit to find retailers in your area who are carrying the clog.

In addition to the clog, Dansko will be hosting a series of retail promotions around the country with limited edition gift with purchase giveaways and a special website dedicated to the cause. Most people know someone tested by the disease. Their determination and perseverance is an inspiration to us all. Dansko has set up a forum to share stories and recognize these heroes. These announcements can be made and viewed at

So get yourself a pair or two and help support such a worthy cause… I’m sure we all know someone who has been affected by this terrible disease and what better way to help them and others while helping your feet.

About the Author:

Patrick Fuerstenau here. Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here. I've been involved with Marketing and Advertising for over a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she's ever had... So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. So here I am at Medical Solutions as a Marketing Specialist for a great travel nursing company. This by far has been a major blessing in my life. I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time... As long as they'll have me. Now that we've got the career timeline out of the way... Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I've been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn't at least kick the ball around, I don't know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts... Music, Visual arts, Film, Design... pretty much anything and everything arty. I'm happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager! And I love writing about travel nursing.
