Travel Nursing Blogs Carnival – Edition September 24, 2010


Merry go round horseWelcome to the September 24, 2010 edition of the Travel Nursing Blog Carnival. This is our second edition so I am glad to see we had more entries.

If you have ever considered getting your PhD in Nursing check out this post by Susan at Online PhD in Nursing, called 10 Surprising Celebrities With PhDs for some unexpected inspiration.

Do you have an iPhone? Then make sure you read Katy Unitek’s post about the Ten Awesome iPhone Apps for Nurses & Nursing Students.

If you are just looking into a nursing career with the hopes of being a travel nurse one day then Peter Kimmich’s post about the Benefits of Becoming an RN, is a good one for you to read.

These tips presented by Carol Vertz in the post 10 Safety Tips for Cruising Around Campus are aimed at on campus college students, but they have a lot of application for travel nurses who are out on on their own during an assignment in a new city or unfamiliar hospital, make sure to read them.

Looking for ways to improve your drive to your travel nursing assignment? Whether it is your drive across the country to a new location or just commuting to the hospital each day, the tips by Sheryl Owen in 10 Ways to a Better Morning Commute could come in h and y.

Although you obviously want to enjoy the fun things tourists do while you are in assignment in a new city, you want to make sure you don’t actually look like a tourist. Be sure to read these tips from Roger Elmore in 10 Tell-Tale Signs You’re a Tourist. Some are for overseas travelers, but there are still a lot of good tips there if you are travel nursing here in the U.S.

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.
