    Crap, good point! I am prone to altitude sickness. It seems to really only be when I hit 10,000+ feet but I didn't even think about that. I wonder if there's anything that can be done to prevent or...

    I'm with TNAA and work with Donna. She's been doing this for a long time and she's great. Everyone I've worked with has been very prompt getting back to me and worked well with me. I'd recommend them.

    Accepted a contract here for May-August. I'm super excited as the weather will be lovely and I've never been to Arizona. Everything I see on here about working at FMC is pretty outdated. Is it...

  8. Hard time getting a contract as a couple
    I'm wondering if that's what I need to do. It seems like jobs for me (OR nurse) might be more in demand than for my boyfriend (physical therapist). We had to take our first assignment in my hometown...

    Hey all. I've had many traveling friends say that they work with two or three companies to be able to get the assignments they want. I don't think they are getting insurance through the companies....

  13. Becoming a stronger candidate
    I didn't say they were all nice. I said the ones that let me intubate are nice. I've been in the OR for 3 years, I know they're not all nice. Neither are surgeons, or nurses.

    Hi all. I'm looking to apply to CRNA school, but I want to do some travel nursing first, so it won't be right away. Probably a couple years from now. I have no ICU experience so I will look to move...

  25. Skin grafting - does your facility treat it as a sterile procedure?
    Oh, that is NOT okay. Wow. Yes, they definitely need to be sterile, first of all, because an infected skin graft won't take and will cause a lot of problems for that patient. Raggedy mangled skin...
