Florida Lifestyle and Travel Nursing Trends Entice the Young at Heart

Professionals in Their 20s and 30s Pursue Technology-Based Florida Travel Nursing Opportunities With 50 States Staffing

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - October 25, 2007) - A recent nurse workforce study published in Health Affairs shows that more people in their late 20s and early 30s are opting to join the nursing profession, especially in Florida, where high travel nurse salaries, job security, new technologies and other outstanding perks have piqued the interest of young professionals interested in a one-of-a-kind lifestyle that caters to their free spirit and willingness to explore, says 50 States Staffing, the leading travel nursing company in the nation.

"Hospitals in the southeast are some of the most progressive in the nation," said Deborah Bacurin, RN, Clinical Coordinator for 50 States Staffing. "Young travel nurses get exposed to the latest in medical technology, learn new methods and work side by side with talented, forward-thinking practitioners. Long term, Florida is an excellent place for nurses to live and thrive."

Travel nursing in Florida, where quality patient care and modern work environments are the norm and magnet facilities in top hospitals strive to optimize workplace conditions and IT systems such as computerized physician order entry (CPOE) and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), has become a very lucrative and satisfying career choice.

"The casual tropical lifestyle of Florida makes it a popular, year-round travel nurse destination. Many see the state's proximity to the Caribbean and the Bahamas as an added bonus to their Florida travel nurse job," said Robert Bok, 50 States Staffing CEO.

At 50 States Staffing, the entire travel nurse process is simplified online. Nurses can search through agency-listed positions as well as jobs posted internally at hospitals. Travelers can access their profile via secure Internet server, eliminating the hassle of shuffling documents back and forth through the mail; payroll, licensure and benefits are all handled online. In addition, 50 States Staffing has unlimited free CEUs, many of which are podcast and iPod downloadable.
