Many thanks and congrats to the August 2019 Traveler of the Month, Susan D., and also our Rising Star winner, Janae C.!
Traveler of the Month Susan is an OB Tech who’s currently on assignment in Flint, Michigan.
Since February 2019, Susan’s been working with Career Consultant Anna Howell, who had great things to say about her.
“I love Susan’s bubbly personality — she is always happy when I speak with her. She has a great work ethic, is a hard worker, and a team player,” says Anna.
Thank you for your great work, Susan, and congrats!
Rising Star Janae is a critical care ICU RN who’s currently assignment in Houston, Texas. She’s been in nursing for about six years, traveling for about six months, and she works with Career Consultant Billy Malcom.
While her current assignment is her first outside of her home state, so she doesn’t have a favorite location yet, Janae says she is “enjoying a routine that is outside of my normality.”
One of Janae’s unique abilities is resilience, which she says has shaped her as person.
“My parents taught me to never give up and if I start something I have to see it through to the end,” she says. “This may not seem very unique, but because of this quality, I am who I am today and it’s what I attribute most of my blessings to.”
Janae decided to try travel nursing to push herself and further develop her skill set.
“I find that the best thing about travel nursing is applying my skills that I’ve learned so far in new situations and proving myself competent,” she says. “I felt that I’d obtained fairly enough knowledge to be an efficient travel nurse and it was time to push and challenge myself!”
Janae shared some really great traveler tips — for new or aspiring traveling healthcare professionals.
“Be yourself! Don’t change how you nurse because you are somewhere new. If you’re a great nurse at one place, continue to be that same nurse someplace else. Your effort will speak for itself! Second, being able to adapt and being open to change is important. My desire for new challenges makes traveling exciting for me no matter the circumstances. Make sure you know exactly why you decided to travel and let that desire be your driving force to be the best travel nurse you can be.”
Thank you for your incredible dedication to patient care and awesome advice, Janae!
