For more than a decade, FlexCare Medical Staffing has placed thousands of travel nurses at facilities around the country.

The nurse community serves as a daily source of inspiration for us, so when we were considering ways to give back so that we could appropriately honor the hard work and dedication of our nurses, it was clear that it had to be something that would speak to the heart of their passion: to help patients thrive.

FlexCare nurse, Amy P., was assigned a gravely ill patient shortly after starting at a new hospital.

The life of a travel nurse is nomadic, to say the least, but it's also very busy, so when we get the opportunity to hear directly from one of our nurses, we love to pass along their wisdom to our community.

We caught up recently with FlexCare traveler Ryan and his dog Solo. Ryan is currently on assignment in the Northern California town of Fort Bragg - an ideal setting for a new traveler. If you're considering a career as a travel nurse, read Ryan's story and find how he makes it work and what he believes is essential to embrace as a traveler.

Jacquelyn is on her first assignment as a travel nurse. The experience led her to write the following message to her recruiter, Kristina. Her account is creative, authentic, and important to share with other travelers, so we decided to publish it in its entirety - without editing or formatting modifications - and  the author graciously gave us permission.
