North Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) July 10, 2009—Travel Nurse across America, a national travel healthcare staffing company, recently completed the relocation of its executive and administrative offices to its newly constructed 21,000 square foot office building located in Northshore Business Park in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

“This new facility was designed from the ground up with our travel nurses, travel therapists and client healthcare facilities in mind”, says Gene Scott, the company’s president. “The office layout will be much more functional and will facilitate better communication between departments and personnel that work together the most in serving our customers. I’m also happy for our associates as well. The proximity of our new offices to the Arkansas River Trail, a biking and pedestrian trail along the Arkansas River and the notorious Big Dam Bridge, the nation’s longest pedestrian bridge, will offer our associates opportunities to maintain a healthy lifestyle around their work.”

Nursing Student Receives National Recognition For Clinical Study

Emily Coombs, a master’s student in the Eleanor Mann School of Nursing at the University of Arkansas, recently won a $500 scholarship at the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists in St. Louis.

Coombs, a staff nurse at Mercy Medical Center in Rogers, won the award for her poster presented at the association’s annual meeting in March about a study of universal screening for the methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Coombs created a poster for her independent study project based on her work with Mercy Medical Center’s Intensive Care Unit and infection preventionist.

Nationwide, hospitals are looking for strategies to reduce the spread of the organism, which has become resistant to many antibiotics, Coombs explained of the team effort.

“One recommended way to do this is universal screening of all patients followed by special precautions for those found to be infected,” she said. “This is usually started in an area of the hospital where patients are more vulnerable, such as the intensive care unit.”
