hello to anyone who reads this post
i am an experienced nurse who has worked in a variety of areas except the intensive care realm and cardiac land..
most of my experience is in maternity care in l/d, postpartum, level i & ii nursery, gyne, circulator and scrub nurse (for c-sections and post-partum tubals) and pediatrics. some general med-surg and iv team (before picc lines were used at the facilities i worked in). i am soon to be 39yrs old and free to go work anywhere. i have worked casual position at other hospitals. i am self reliant, knowledgable in my practice, and can act quickly in emergency situations.
my children are grown and moving out and in my area the hospitals are merging and closing many maternity departments. i am looking into traveling nursing in the maternity care setting. i know nothing about travel nursing and would like some guidance on what to ask and who is a reputable company to contact. are there any travel nurse companies that deal specifically with obstetrical practice?
any information or direction in the right way would be appreciated. i have only met one traveling nurse in the past and she loved it, but it was a brief encounter and it a very long time ago.
