Celebrating National Patient Safety Awareness Week

It’s National Patient Safety Awareness Week! Next Travel Nursing is celebrating some of the most important people for patient safety – travel nurses!

What Makes National Patient Safety Awareness Week so Important to Next?

Did you know nurses administer like 98% of the 🌎 ‘s healthcare services? It doesn’t take a lot of time in hospitals to know nurses are vital to quality healthcare.  These people are critical to patient safety. Nurses and their lifesaving services are often lacking in places needed most. Nurses are in high demand, and with patient occupancy always fluctuating, hospitals can’t always afford to hire full-time nurses.

And what about patients in remote or rural areas? In a world where not every patient is guaranteed a nurse, travel nurses are crucial. In fact, most medical facilities would probably fall apart without them. Understaffed units have problems that go way beyond being overworked; including jeopardized patient safety. Having enough nurses on staff is a major factor in preventing daily disasters.☹️

Travel Nurses 💯

Enter travel nurses. Travel nurses are keeping hospitals afloat everywhere. Living life 13 weeks at a time, travel nurses go where they’re needed most. In other words, they could be anywhere, anytime. And that’s what makes travel nursing so fun!🙌 No matter where you are, travel nurses are probably helping someone nearby. This is National Patient Safety Awareness Week, so it’s only right we acknowledge the medical professionals keeping us all well.

If you are already a travel nurse or thinking about becoming a first-time traveler, we celebrate you. Next Travel Nursing has you covered in your career while you do the hard work. Thanks, travel nurses.
