That’s why we are beyond excited to invite you to celebrate Travel Nurses Day 2016 with Medical Solutions at TravelNursesDay.com — where you can sign up now for Travel Nurses Day updates and return October 7-16 to play games, take quizzes, join in the celebration, and (fingers crossed!) win some awesome prizes!..
