Attitudes That Lead To Travel Nurse Job Security
Here is a good news/bad news story. Any travel nurse looking down the road and wondering if their services will be needed in the future can feel confident that they will indeed (the good news) if the administration at University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston maintains their current attitude (the bad news).
Apparently, the powers that be at the school have created an environment that is so rigid and narrowly focused that the teaching staff at the school is taking action to try to counter the damaging effect that certain actions by the administration have caused.
As a result of these actions, enrollment at UTMB has been restricted due to the lack of qualified teaching staff.
It continues to amaze me that those in the position to have the greatest influence on bringing new nurses into the fold keep building barriers to entry into the profession. These attitudes pretty much insure that there will be plenty of travel nursing jobs for a long time to come as the nursing shortage is perpetuated by myopic management decisions.
