Flu season is just around the corner and ALTRES Medical, Hawaii’s leader in supplemental nursing services, is seeking more than 300 registered nurses (RNs), nursing assistants (NAs) and medical assistants (MAs) to administer flu shots to Hawaii students and assist at school flu clinics statewide.

The “Stop Flu at School” influenza vaccination clinics will be held on public school and private school campuses on all islands.

“The ‘Stop Flu at School’ clinics are a wonderful opportunity for nurses of all levels of experience to serve their local communities,” said Jenies Thomas, manager of ALTRES Medical. “Nurses can choose to stay in the neighborhoods they live in, work nearby, or they can request to be assigned to communities with the greatest need.”
