Bedside manner tips for a travel nurse

Omaha, NE, (April 12, 2012) -- The right bedside manner can enhance a travel nurse's ability to comfort a patient.  Aureus Medical Group, a national leader in healthcare staffing, shares insight on how a travel RN can excel in this area and as a result, improve her level of patient care.

For nurses, who typically spend even more time with patients, the effects may be even greater.

The U.S. Department of Education's National Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL) found that only 13 percent of American adults fully understand the healthcare information presented to them. This can greatly increase a patient's stress level. A travel nurse aware of these details may wish to consider evaluating and working to always improve her bedside manner.
