Meet and Exceed Your Financial Goals for 2019!


2019 is almost here!

‘Tis the season for gift giving, baking delicious desserts, holiday decorations, winter wishes and joyful hearts. Soon it will be time to Reset, Relax and Refresh for the new year.

As tempting as it may be to spend the rest of December curled up with a big mug of cocoa, a snuggly blanket, and a never-ending Netflix queue, consider putting time into creating your game plan for kicking off 2019 in your most successful way. Invest in your future and it will pay off tenfold.

Here are a few simple ways you can invest in your future, that line you up with your most successful self in 2019.

1. Plan and Start Goals Now!

In general, to be largely successful, it typically involves doing the things that most people don’t do. To get ahead, don’t plan later.

For example, most people wait until the first of the year to make their resolutions; Don’t be like most people!  If you are planning on making a New Year’s Resolution, spend a few hours before NYE planning your goals, write them down, and then block time on your calendar in the early months of the year that sets you up with a plan. If you don’t have a calendar, get one. All goals begin with a plan. Then, execute your strategy! The key is to start… now!

2. Create a profile on LinkedIn.

Personally, I love the blog post written by Omar Garriott, Senior Director at Salesforce, on 10 LinkedIn tips for New Students & Grads. In today’s world, 80% of job openings are never advertised. Whether you are in college, a new grad, or an experienced healthcare professional, his blog article is PACKED, with useful explanations on why LinkedIn is so important in today’s working world. He breaks down the profile creation process, explains why they are important to do, and includes helpful links to supportive research like using LinkedIn’s awesome Alumni Tool to find & connect with successful grads from your school. And, be SURE to Check out the LinkedIn resource center for college students!

3. Get Financially Fit

Whether you are paying off student loans or saving an emergency nest egg for your goal of working a travel contract with us in the future, there’s an app that can help! Here are 6 smartphone-friendly apps to help you easily set aside your digital spare change for financial goal success:

  • Rounds up change to nearest dollar and moves it into savings.
  • Allows specific goals to be set and named.

  • DIGIT Best for Simplicity

4. Last but not least..

The Dave Ramsey Allocated Spending Plan is another helpful tool you can use to help plan your spending.

An allocated spending plan, which is outlined in his best-selling book The Total Money Makeover, is a type of budget, based on using percentages of your income. The idea is to have a place and purpose for every dollar.

This plan suggests the following allocation percentages:

Food – 15%
Medical – 10%
Housing – 25%
Savings – 10%
Transportation – 10%
Utilities – 5%
Total – 75%

The idea is to cover the necessities first, then fill in the rest depending on your goals. For some “the rest” may be covering debt payments, building their emergency fund, or go toward further education development.

Keep in mind, what is essential will change, e.g. a family has different needs such as childcare or education than someone who is single. Click here to start your own budget form!

Here’s to a new year, new opportunities, and new skills!

MMR Overview for Healthcare Workers


What is MMR?

MMR-Overview-for-Healthcare-Workers-Blog-Post-Premier-ImageMMR is an abbreviation for three different types of airborne viruses: Measles, Mumps, or Rubella. Once these airborne viruses enter our bodies, they have one purpose: make more viruses. A virus is a master of deceit. It enters your body as a foreign invader and hijacks one of your body’s cells to hide from the antibodies that are patrolling your system. Once the virus is inside the cell, it tells the cell what to make and when to make it. These new cells that were created by the hijacked cell are now carrying, replicating, and spreading these viruses inside your body by the millions every second.

Correctional Healthcare is a Hidden Gem


Consider Correctional Healthcare for Your Next Nurse Contract

Treasure-Correctional-Healthcare-Hidden-Gem-Blog-Shannon-Premier-ImageCorrectional healthcare is a hidden gem. If you want to widen your scope of practice as a nurse and you are confident in your assessment skills, this may be a specialty you would enjoy. I would suggest knowing the difference between jails and prisons is essential to understanding which culture is the best fit for you.

Both correctional facilities often treat patients who may not have had access to healthcare or who haven’t wanted treatment. In my experience, jails are short-term and have a revolving door for new and old inmates who need more temporary and short-term care.

Preparing for a Travel Assignment: Your Compliance Checklist


What Does This Compliance Checklist Mean?

In a recent social media group talk, a first-time Traveling Nurse posted their frustration and confusion on the list of needs or compliance checklist a recruiter gave them for their first travel assignment. A recruiter asked for the following items from the traveler:

  1. ACLS… What?!
  2. TB – Don’t they last a year?
  3. Years of online modules
  4. Physical
  5. Flu shot
  6. Fit test

Blog-Post-Travel-Nurse-Prep-Compliance-Checklist-Liz-Premier-ImageThe checklist from the recruiter felt overwhelming and unnecessary to the traveler. It just didn’t make sense. Also, this information was provided too close to the assignment start date and seemed sudden to the Travel Nurse. To start a relationship between a traveler and recruiter on a frustrating note is unfortunate. As a recruiter, you want the Travel Nurse to feel appreciated and informed. Meanwhile, the Travel Nurse wants respect, transparency, and efficiency from their recruiter especially if this is their first contract assignment.
