Travel Nurse Goes to Great Lengths to Comfort Patients

FlexCare nurse hero, Pamela

For this year’s Nurses Week, we received many impressive stories featuring our superhero nurses. Although the celebratory week may be over, we want to continue to share the extraordinary work performed by our FlexCare Family of nurses – starting with this bittersweet story.  

 

In a time of tragedy, this travel nurse took matters into her own hands to console a patient as best she could – because she knew no one else would.

It’s always difficult to choose our Nurse Hero, and this year was no exception. We had countless stories of travel nurses who saved lives under extreme circumstances, donated their time and expertise to people in need, and inspired us all to be better humans. But one story stood out because of the risk involved in pursuit of a better life for others, and it’s why we chose Paige, ER RN, as FlexCare's 2019 Greatest Nurse Hero.

 

Paige just returned from a medical mission to Iraq and Turkey, accompanying a physician she met during a recent assignment.

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!

Get in on winter pay rates before the January surge!

Did you know that January is one of the busiest months for travelers applying for new assignments? Avoid getting caught in the “bottleneck” of people who had contracts end in December, or took time off for the holidays, or waited for the New Year. Once these well-meaning procrastinators are ready to begin a new adventure, the pool of candidates applying for jobs at the same time nears a fever pitch.
