Flu Crew Nurse Jobs in MD
No official "flu crew" definition exists in the health care industry. The term may encompass a variety of nurses who administer flu shots and other injections, as well as those who educate staff about the importance of annual flu shots or have responsibility for ensuring that all members of a company have received the vaccines.
For example, while they may be called to assess individuals and help them receive vaccinations at a clinic, some flu shot nurses may work at a facility where only staff members who require backup vaccinations are vaccinated, or they may work to make sure that all employees—either in a specific department or for an entire company—receive the seasonal flu vaccine each year. Flu crew nurses may also be responsible for educating medical staff on when and how to administer vaccines.
If you are trained in administering injections (generally speaking all RNs are able to administer vaccinations), you might want to make some good money working as a flu shot nurse on a travel contract. Locations you might work at as a flu shot travel nurse include hospitals, community centers, retail clinics, schools, corporations, health fairs, assisted-living facilities, and pop-up clinics. Skills that are ideal for a flu shot nurse include hospital experience, the ability to work independently, and customer service skills.
