A must read for all nurse travelers. Apr 12, 2008
A must read! Any and all nurses even thinking about traveling should read this very helpful book.
Needed an editor!!!! Jul 28, 2007
This book was not professionally written, had some material that made the author look defensive about her nursing practice....Really could have been polished up a lot more before publication. Epstein also rates her own books at a 5 star for both editions!!!! Get Shalon Kearney's book instead, it may be outdated, but it was much more useful to me in the long run!!
Nothing new here Apr 5, 2007
I realize this book is 2 years old as of this writing, but I was sorely disappointed that even so it cited references from 2000 - 2002 as "current". Also it is chock full of typos and sorely in need of a good editor. I honestly didn't read anything of value in this book that I didn't ALREADY get off her website (verbatim, in most cases). Don't waste your money or time.
Great Resource for Nurses wanting to explore Travel Nursing Oct 2, 2006
This is a must have book for nurses that are wanting to discover the adventures and advantages of Healthcare Traveling. This book is written from a personal experience in travel nursing. To A Nurse, by a Nurse... This would also make a great gift for a new graduate nurse.
Poor information Sep 28, 2006
As a long-time travel nurse, I read this book for kicks. I found the information to be so poor, that I cannot recommend it at all, especially to the new traveler. A new traveler or wannabe traveler will be led down astray. Worse, important information is sadly missing and misinformation is all through it. It's too bad.
