August 2014 Travel Nurse Newsletter
Pet Friendly Benefits
Whether it's the traditional “man's best friend ” the canine, or it's your best friend the lizard, cat, fish, or horse — seriously, meet Eichie the Traveling horse here — Medical Solutions wants to make sure that you are able to take your pets with you on your Travel Nursing adventure.
We understand that even with all of the cool, new stuff you get to experience on assignment, you'll probably get to missing the folks from back home. But, as pet lovers ourselves, we know that leaving your pets behind and missing them is just too hard to bear for many Travel Nurses.
You can make your Travel Nurse housing into a home so much better when your pets are on board. That's why Medical Solutions is proud to be a pet friendly Travel Nurse company! We work to make it as easy, efficient, and inexpensive as possible for our Travelers to take their fine-feathered/furred/scaled friends on the road with them.
How Not to Travel Nursing Videos: Choosing a Travel Nurse Company
Medical Solutions is excited to introduce our new How NOT To Travel Nursing Videos.
We love to provide Travelers with excellent resources and we love to have fun. We created this video series so we could do both at once!
The series pairs a brief, humorous video depicting how a Travel Nurse should not attempt to handle a specific aspect of Travel Nursing, accompanied by an article with tips on how he or she can succeed in the same situation. Travel Nursing is an awesome gig, but it has its hitches and obstacles just like any job. You will definitely prosper to your fullest when you have the resources and good advice on how to succeed in the industry.
We'll be featuring a new How NOT To video and corresponding article each month in our newsletter. This month we'd like to share “How NOT to Choose a Travel Nursing Company. ”
Check out the video here, then be sure to click through to read the article on How to Choose a Travel Nursing Company.
