August 11, 2017 commenting note

You may have noticed PanTravelers has a new design. The underlying technology is brand new with a lot of cool stuff, including the ability to comment on any article. Like any new site, there are unintended bugs that cause a scramble to fix. Posting a comment reveals your real name from your registration on the comment. Because comments often share sensitive issues along with the names of agencies and facilities, this can have consequences for the poster - and there are many such cases from other social media as agencies and facilities also have access to social media and this site. Until this issue is fixed allowing members to post comments anonymously, commenting has been turned off. It will be back later as this a valuable communication tool.

Do be careful posting on any social media, particularly ones like FaceBook that use your real name. Honest questions and concerns posted online can adversely affect your career.

Ten Years Afternurses02

It was never certain how successful an association of travelers would be when, in 2005, preliminary discussions began among a small group of travelers. A month after we opened officially on May 1, 2007, we had only about 25 members. Now, 10 years later, we have over 12,000 members! And we are growing rapidly. Representing the interests of so many travelers, we are able to influence industry practices and improve conditions for travelers.

PanTravelers is the only non-profit organization exclusively dedicated to healthcare travelers' interests. Before PanTravelers was founded, travelers didn't have an advocate to represent their interests, nor a unified voice within the industry. PanTravelers was founded to fill that void. There was and is still an immense amount of myth and misinformation circulating among both travelers and agencies. We recognized a need for an authoritative source of accurate information available to all travelers with a goal of helping travelers avoid the common pitfalls that can adversely affect their careers. As we launch this updated website, please be forgiving while we work out the glitches.
