GLASGOW, Ky. – A pandemic-era craze is even now going potent for a person area healthcare facility.
Vacation nurses had been a needed useful resource during the pandemic, and now about 30 travel nurses go on to fill the hole for TJ Samson Clinic.
The desire for travel nurses exploded as medical center personnel experienced burnout and shortages at the top of the Covid pandemic. In 2020 alone, touring nursing demand grew 35 p.c from the preceding calendar year.
TJ Regional Chief Nursing Officer Brandon Dickey mentioned, “We see them as our TJ staff, and our patients do, way too. Fortunately, they’ve bought into that mentality, so it’s been a terrific connection, and which is not often been the case with tourists.”
Dickey says in spite of the common 13 week journey nurse agreement many have stayed at TJ regional for above a calendar year.
