Healthcare Hero Award: this travel nurse knows adventure

Christopher, an ICU RN, has been named FlexCare's 2019 Greatest Adventurer! What makes Christopher our top Adventurer? He embraces the travel nurse lifestyle and seeks memorable adventures not just in the assignments he chooses, but also in his free time. Living in an RV, moving around California, traveling every chance he gets (even taking dramatic videos with his drone), and spreading good vibes along the way makes Christopher our hands-down favorite!

At FlexCare, we believe there's no better way to encourage nurses to choose a career as a travel nurse than through a referral. Stephanie (shown here on the right), a CVICU RN from Florida, is being honored as FlexCare's 2019 Greatest Family Member for sending her recruiter the most completed referrals for 2018.

2019 Healthcare Heroes Award Road Warrior

Michael, a Med/Surg RN from South Carolina, has more than earned the FlexCare 2019 Road Warrior Award. A FlexCare Road Warrior is a nurse who has logged the most assignments and miles in the previous year, and this travel nurse embraced the road trip lifestyle.

 

Michael traveled to five states in 2018, starting out in North Carolina. He then headed west to Arizona and Texas, then back to the East Coast with an assignment in New Hampshire, and then Maryland. Whew!

Travel nurse hiking in Arizona

Christine, a FlexCare Med-Surg/Tele RN and recent featured Tuesday Traveler, doesn't have challenges finding the good in each assignment. Currently working in Arizona, Christine is not shy about grabbing her camera to explore an area. Her motto, "Life is an adventure. Take risks," is the epitome of a positive traveler mindset.

The most successful travelers are those who can embrace adventure, go with the flow, and forge relationships with people they meet along the way. Making the leap to become a traveler takes a ton of guts and an absolute faith in your skills, but the rewards are plentiful.

We share stories about our nurse and allied travelers to provide a glimpse into the unique lifestyle. Like everything, the experience of being a traveler is whatever you make of it.
