Take a Vacation… On a Budget


I imagine that vacation means the same for anyone who works full time, week in and week out, but for some reason though, I believe vacations can mean a little more to a nurse. All year you work so hard at nursing your patients back to health and with great success, but unfortunately there can also be times where you’ve done all you can and there is simply nothing more you can do to help. All these ups and downs can quickly add up and if you don’t take the time to realize the effect it is having, you may find yourself unhappy and ready for something else. Before it’s too late, give yourself a break.

Lately the state of healthcare has been through some trying times and nurses and other medical staff are beginning to feel the effects. With the risk of patient care suffering and nurses experiencing fatigue and burnout, it is imperative that you give yourself a little “me” time. Vacations can work wonders for the soul and give your psyche a bit of an escape from the realities and repetition of our daily lives. Whether it’s just a “mental health” day or a weeks long vacation at some resort… You deserve a break and you deserve to make the most of every dollar you spend on it.

We all know where the economy st and s today and it is probably a big factor in why you deserve to take a break. You may be leery to do anything extravagant because of your financial situation and that’s the smart thing to do. So here are a few ways to help you make the most of your time and money! Nurses and Vacation – 12 Ways to Stretch Your Budget

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.
