We're Four (and several days)

On April 29th, AMN celebrated it’s fourth birthday. Well, actually, we forgot to celebrate as it was a beautiful day in Chicago and we spent most of our time outside. Oh well. In any case, thanks again to everyone for the support. Every year we get a little bigger, hopefully a little badder, post more articles and see more traffic. April was a record-breaking month in terms of visitors to the site, and we’re thrilled to see your continued interest in our little corner of the world.
