If you ever thought that travel nurses should have their own holiday, you are in luck! This upcoming Friday, October 11, 2013, will be the first annual Travel Nurses Day.
Visit TravelNursesDay.com where you can play games for the chance to win one of 15 $50 gift card prizes from Zappos, Starbucks, and Spa Finder. The contests are going on now through Travel Nurses Day and games include Pictograms, Anagram Puzzles, and Photo Observations. There is also a $250 grand prize gift card to Scrubadoo for winning the raffle.
Medical Solutions decided to launch the holiday in order to celebrate the uniqueness of the field and honor travel nurses. According to their blog, “Travel nurses are the pinch hitters of the healthcare field. And when you arrive on a job we know that you always swing for the fences. You are always there to make sure that patient care never suffers in the face of personnel shortages or permanent staff burnout. You exude positivity and manage to continuously remain flexible in all kinds of new facilities and unfamiliar terrain, ready to jump in and help at a moment’s notice. For these reasons and so many more, we are so thankful for you.”
Sounds pretty much like the travel nurses I know. So, Happy (almost) Travel Nurses Day — enjoy!
