It's officially flu season! Which means sicker kids in the waiting room and lots of germs going around! Sometimes I wish we could stand outside of the ER and if patients are okay we could send them home, because they are more likely going to catch something while waiting 🤷🏼‍♀️ But guess what!? That's DEFINITELY not allowed... EVER! ⁣ ⁣ Have you ever heard of EMTALA? ⁣ ⁣ EMTALA stands for Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act. It ensures that any patient who comes to an ER cannot be turned away, regardless of if they can pay or not, or if their complaint is truly an emergency. This means that any patient that walks into the ER has the right to be seen by a provider & medically cleared.⁣ ⁣ I have never once heard an ER doctor say, "they don't carry our insurance, we can't see them"... so TV shows that are constantly showing this happen are not telling a true story. (Inpatient & specialties may be a different story- I won't speak for them)⁣ ⁣ If a patient needs to be transferred to a different hospital, an ER doc must clear them for transfer. An example of this is a patient in labor coming into a pediatric ER. She would be seen by the doctor and once stabilized, she would be transferred to a hospital with labor and delivery services. The original hospital cannot turn her away simply because they don't have OBGYN specialists on staff.⁣ ⁣ While researching EMTALA, I learned that because of this law, emergency physicians give more charity work than any other type of physician because they are not paid for seeing uninsured patients. They provide approximately 30 hours of free work a WEEK treating patients who come through the ER. Can you imagine working that hard & not getting paid at your own job? I can't! I would quit in a heartbeat... Everyone can agree that American healthcare is a broken system. For patients, for nurses, and for doctors. So let's all have a little grace today- for the patient who is tired of waiting, for the nurses working overtime shifts, and for the doctors who truly give so much with very little given back ❤️

This is a brunch plate. It’s something you can find at many cafes across Copenhagen, and it’s an indecisive person’s dream. I was sick the morning I got this one, so I went with the vegan option for the max potential of vitamin goodness, but most will come with some cheese and jam, a waffle or pancake, and some sort of sausage or bacon. ie a little taste of all the good morning things. Can we make this a thing in America? - Also matcha happened of course 💁‍♀️🍵 (not pictured: adorable mini açaí bowl in a cocktail glass) . . . . . . . #copenhagen #copenhagenfood #copenhagencafe #sidecarcopenhagen #brunchplate #vegan #veganbrunch #travelnurse #travelrn #travelnurselife #travelnurseadventures #nurselife #sicklife #sickfix #vegan #vegancopenhagen

Walkin down the streets of New Minas NS, the Chinese buffets didn't catch my eye, but the Indian buffet did. And I'm glad I stopped by. Although there were not as much options, one dish that stood out is this Chicken 65. Why the "65"? I don't know..but what it is, is good. Chicken legs marinated in many different Indian spices and deep fried. . It was so good I went back for 2nds and 3rds. . . . #chrismariafamilyrestaurant #newminas #dinnerbuffet #chicken65 #friedchicken #indianbuffet #food #indianfood #indian #chicken #travelnurselife #foodienurse #nursefoodie #pinoyfoodie #eatfatkideat #pixel3 #foodphotography #foodie

So I did a thing, a surprising un-traveling-Jessica thing... I took a full time position at a hospital back home! 🏥🙋🏼‍♀️ : After spending the last 2 years on the road living out of suitcases, I’ve worked at 5 different hospitals and lived in 4 different states! I stood next to sea lions on the beach in La Jolla, CA, I watched the aurora dance in Alaska, and I tried fresh lobster in Maine 🦞 All amazing experiences that I’m so grateful for. : Now it’s time to take a break, live in our house, plant a garden, get some more pets 🐾, etc. But don’t worry, the traveling isn’t going to stop anytime soon! I already have 2 international trips in the works for 2020!! 🤩✈️🌍🌏 : Thanks for the capture 📸 @latinachictravels 💖 : #travelnurselife #travelnurseadventures #newyorkcity #centralpark #bowbridge #nyc #manhattan #pediatricnurse #travellove #fortheloveoftravel #exploreyourworld #travelnurse #talemed #nycfall #blondesandcookies #sheisnotlost #girlstraveltale #sofetravel #wearetravelgirls #femaletravelbloggers #thewanderlustdiariesblog #newyork #newyorknewyork #nyclove #newyorktrip #redcoat #walkablecity #thebigapple

Satisfying Saturday. There is a magical satisfaction that comes with completing a task. Or a moment of bliss when you accomplish your goal. However, as coach likes to say it’s the process and the journey that takes us to the goal that’s magic. Truly though think about it. You set a goal, say saving for a house, and you work extra hours, cut back on spending, sell stuff and or whatever you do to attain that down payment and buy your house. Is the house the main prize of is the bigger part of the win all the hustle, mentality and hard work out into getting that down payment to get the house the magic. Now what does attaining a goal or satisfaction have to do with my posing selfies, well.... it’s truly satisfying to see my booty grow. To see how my body continues to evolve and build towards that end goal but the energy, dedication, hard work, sweat, tears, countless hours of meal prep, check ins, off season to full blown prep to competition day is where the magic happens. Working towards more of a balance of life, work and my fitness baby this time around. Excited for 2020 and getting all fired up as my beauty friend, hammer fitfam babes and fitspiration is competing in her big pro show today. So incredibly proud of this woman and the hours, time and energy she has put into all the training and shows she has done this year. She truly fires me up as she is an athlete on a whole other level. I find myself in awe of her level of commitment and drive, and how well she endures the process which makes me re asses and build and restructure my own training and program. Mentality is everything and she is dialed in constantly!! Give em hell today you beauty and I can’t wait to celebrate your big win with you very soon. Much love and best wishes to you Jules and happy Saturday all. #fitnurse #nurseswholift #ernurselife🚑🏥💊💉❤️👩 #travelnurselife #travellinggymrat #bodybuildingwomen #yvr #fitfam #cheekydevil #gains #thoseproportions #offseasongains #cpabikiniathlete #trusttheprocess #growthmindset #surroundyourselfwithpositivepeople #livestrapt #smilebigger #dreambigger #dowhatsetsyoursoulonfire🔥 @strapt_apparel @amerthehammer @hammerfitness @juliamarie_ifbbpro

This is true. But. BUT, actual pay depends on many factors including: location, specialty, and shift. And, there are plenty of travel nurses who make well over SIX figures a year. The typical travel nurse’s take home pay is between $1200-$2500 per week. For example, a travel nurse who takes the housing stipend, finds their own housing and lives modestly will take home A LOT more money than a nurse who uses company housing. 🎯

Wine country has been so good to us!! We made it through the Santa Rosa fires, we drank a lot of wine (and learned a ton!!), and once again I’ve had a great experience in the NICU at SRMH! In less than a month, we’ll be heading to our next destination- DENVER ❄️🎿🏔 This guy will be learning to ski! ⛷ I will be working at the Children’s Hospital of Colorado. I’ve been wanting to move to Denver for the majority of my life so this is truly a dream come true! I’m so excited for this opportunity to learn and be exposed to level 4 NICU! Not to mention be surrounded by mountains and endless things on our bucket list! I’m so extremely grateful to have Eric by my side in this adventure- it makes travel nursing even more special.

⁣⁣⁣ I am where I need to be.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ To say my first week at my newest travel nurse contract was rough would be an understatement. It was hard personally and professionally and also getting injured my first day from saving someone was not what I had in mind. But there is a silver lining.⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Some of the things I’ve needed have shown up for me in strange ways—mostly people and their knowledge/passions/skillset—and some of the things I’ve needed for awhile now are starting to come to fruition too. I can’t wait to dive deeper.⁣ Life is funny with its synchronicities. ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Even in this midst of a storm there is always a calm after. Sometimes I struggle to remember that, what can I say..I’m human. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’m just going to keep telling myself⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ I am where I need to be.⁣⁣⁣ I am where I need to be⁣⁣⁣ I am where I need to be.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Because I am.⁣ ⁣ Photo from a moody day in the PNW

Fierce flashback Friday. A week of beauty throwbacks after spending the last week not feeling my most glamorous or best self. 2018 was one of the worst years of my life. However it was that personal trauma that has helped to grow into who I am today. Everything truly happens for a reason. People come in an out of your life and they all serve a purpose. Are some of the lessons hard to swallow, yes yes they abso fucking Lutely are, but you do not grow from luck you grow from adversity and struggle. Every time you break a little your grow that much more. Live and learn. Has this last week been one of my best this year? Nope it’s been one of the worst. Spending last Saturday in the ER and for 4 hrs rinsing my eyes in a sink to restore my vision and reverse toxic alkaline levels was probably one of the most humiliating experiences of my life. I haven’t cried that raw in a long ass time. Did it break me though, nope it didn’t. Presently working through my emotions and my response to this situation and working to find the growth. So here’s to a woman who stopped fearing the fire and chose to become it. Who continues to unapologetically burn fiercely everyday. For someone who’s working daily on looking inside and healing my demons while letting it all out happily and healthily in the one place that feels like home, the gym. I mean it when I say the gym is my therapy. Life is 10 percent what happens to ya and 90 percent of how we react, so I’m working on my reaction and moving foreword as gracefully and mature possible after receiving a dry full send in the rear end if you will. I didn’t miss a day of training despite this past week and am better for it. Using this all as fuel for PRs and off season gains! Much love and happy Friday. . . 📸: @everlastingimagephotography Tan: @bombshell.productions Hair: @weavelifeinc Glistening skin @drip_fit Unreal fitness/mentality/emotional level: @amerthehammer @hammerfitness @ladythefup
