Are Travel Nurses As Good As Staff Nurses?
Well here’s a question that may spark some debate. Are travel nurses as competent as staff nurses? That is a question raised during a news story about the nursing shortage in a California community. Commenting on the need for more part-time help and travel nurses to help alleviate the shortage one nurse stated, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hopefully, the care they get from a traveling nurse is the same as regular staff.Ã¢â‚¬Â
What do you think? If you are a staff nurse, do you think that travel nurses perform as well as they should? After all, they are being compensated pretty well for their services. And travel nurses, should there be any question about your competency?
