When it comes to daily items we need around the house, not everyone can make it to the store, access Internet to order online, or simply afford them. The cold months make it even harder for seniors to find a way to get household items. This is where you can help. Throughout the summer, Premier Medical Staffing Services is collecting household items for Milwaukee area seniors in need to help them make it through the winter season. Discover how you can donate to help seniors in Wisconsin.

How to Achieve Your Financial Goals
Are you looking for highly effective ways to achieve your financial goals? We have prepared four helpful recommendations that will make managing your money easier.
1. Plan and Start Goals Now
In general, to be successful with your financial goals, it takes doing the things that most people won’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. 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!
During the Summer of 2018, Lauren Hanoski joined our Premier Medical Staffing Services team of Talent Acquisition Managers while on summer break from Carroll University. Double majoring in Athletic Training and Healthcare Administration, she arrived with boundless energy and interest to learn the ropes while blending her personal experiences in healthcare with the business side of healthcare.
She was eager to jump in! Lauren has proven over the summer to be a quick study in healthcare professional recruitment. Before she leaves Premier for the summer and heads back to school, our Community Development Manager, Norissa, sat down with Lauren to see how her summer job went and what advice she has for students.
Healthcare providers are increasingly getting into travel healthcare for the high earnings it offers. Yes, we do make more money than employees at most places, but going into travel nursing with wide-open financial eyes is vital.
What is MMR?
MMR 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.
Consider Correctional Healthcare for Your Next Nurse Contract
Correctional 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.
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:
- ACLS… What?!
- TB – Don’t they last a year?
- Years of online modules
- Flu shot
- Fit test
The 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.
Merriam-Webster defines Communication as “the act or process of using words, sounds, signs or behaviors to express or exchange information or to express your ideas, thoughts, feelings, etc. to someone else.”
Basically, communication is how we interact with everyone. It is a vital part of our everyday lives, from family, friends, and coworkers to strangers passing by. Some people are great communicators; others, not so much. Either way, we all have to communicate somehow.
