Life As a Travel Health Nurse
Travel health nurses play a key role in helping travellers stay safe abroad. Through a travel health consultation, individuals going abroad can stay safe no matter the destination or itinerary. Our travel nurses work in-clinic to provide clients with this information and the vaccinations they may need.
The average travel consultation lasts 45-minutes. Each client’s trip is unique, you’ll be trained on identifying their needs based on their journey. Most of the consult will be counseling the client on what is happening in country with time allotted for providing the necessary vaccinations.
Vaccinations are provided per PHAC safety and travel guidelines. Documentation should be completed in the client’s International Certificate of Vaccination and our proprietary EMR system.
Above all, our nurses are in the people business. Each client has a wonderful story to tell about their trip and a unique situation. This is truly a job where every day presents the opportunity to learn or experience something brand new.
