Onward Healthcare Launches Travel Nursing Podcast

Discussions Focus on Lifestyle and Career Advice for the Travel Nursing Community

WILTON, CT--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) - Onward Healthcare, Inc., a nationwide provider of travel nurse jobs, is excited to announce the release of the "Travel Nursing Insider" podcast. The program is a semimonthly show aimed to educate registered nurses about careers in travel nursing, as well as discuss the latest travel nursing job trends.

This week Onward Healthcare released a two-part episode featuring Deb Shea, vice president of travel nursing, and Sera Cullen, director of travel nursing recruitment, titled "Travel Nursing 101." Part one focuses on how the travel nursing process works, what a typical assignment entails, as well as why so many nurses choose to travel. Part two expands upon how to get started in a travel nursing career and the importance of the online application.

"In today's economy, travel nursing continues to be an excellent way to further your nursing career, and we felt that podcasting was a simple and easy-to-digest means to inform the nursing community about its benefits," stated Ken Clark, senior vice president of Onward Healthcare. "Travel nurses are an on-the-go group, so we felt there was no better way to serve their busy lifestyles then to let them download our show and listen to it on their way to work, at the gym or walking around a new city."

Future episodes of "Travel Nursing Insider" will cover a range of topics including how to maximize your travel nursing salary, what to bring on a travel nurse assignment and how to get acquainted to a new city.
