Elevate Your Nursing Career

Nurses question if travel nursing is right for them.

A self-evaluation is completed in the Newbies Workbook to evaluate if you have the right personality, temperament, clinical skills, and critical thinking skills.

Nurses have a resounding fear of a new hospital environment.

Kay and her team of mentors have been there!  We will walk you through the steps of getting ready for your first travel nursing assignment.

Nurses question if the advice that they are given is factual.

We are very experienced nurses who follow the guidelines of flexibility, integrity, adaptability, professionalism, and dependability.

Nurses fear that their contract will get cancelled without warning.

We work with travel companies that will back you up in case of a hospital cancellation, and will make every attempt to get you back on the right track.

Kay “Epstein LaRue” Slane, RN
Owner / Travel Nursing Coach & Educator

Kay Slane, RN, BS, CGM, has been a licensed nurse since 1992. When she started traveling in 2003, she couldn't understand why there wasn't one place that you could get all of these companies benefits at the same website; therefore, she created Highway Hypodermics (the website) to house her database of Travel Nursing Companies. It was during her first assignment in Phoenix, AZ, that she decided to write a journal of her first assignment. This work along with her travel company information was published in January of 2005 as "Highway Hypodermics: Your Road Map To Travel Nursing.” Five books later, "Highway Hypodermics: Travel Nursing 2017," has remained in the top 20 book on Amazon's Nursing Reference eBook list since its publication in September of 2016. In 2013 she completed her Graduate-Level Certificate in Nursing Management (CGM) and currently travels as a house supervisor during the winters, and educates nurses & recruiters during the winter.
