Without further ado, the Traveler of the Month for January is:
Recruiter: Ashleigh Taylor
Ashleigh on Jennifer – Jenny has been an excellent nurse to work with. She is dependable, organized and an extremely hard worker. I am so proud of her accomplishments thus far. I can only expect great things from her in the future. I have regularly received excellent feedback on traveler reviews for Jenny and she has never missed a day of work.
About Jennifer, from Jennifer: “I started my nursing career last August in the OR at Blessing Hospital in Quincy, IL. I knew before even being hired that I wanted to specialize in hearts, so I joined the CVOR team. The types of surgeries that Blessing offers is limited in terms of cardiovascular procedures, so I toyed with the idea of traveling. Two of my friends were currently traveling at the time and made it seem like so much fun so I decided to give it a shot. I intended on sending my resume to the company they both worked for, but accidentally sent it to EVERY traveling company instead!”
The next day I was bombarded with recruiters calling, and I had no idea who to go with. I did some research on the ones that called, and I very quickly chose HCTN. I started my first assignment near Crystal Lake, IL. I’m currently finishing my second one in Springfield, IL and I can’t wait for my next one in Fairfax, VA!
“I love the idea of seeing new places and meeting new people, but my favorite part about traveling is the opportunities I get to not only learn something new, but to share what I have learned so far with others.”
Advice for new travelers?
“The best advice I could give for a new traveler is to listen to your recruiter. There have been many times that I didn’t even think about asking a hospital something during my interview, and my recruiter already had it covered. I would be absolutely lost without her! Also, don’t forget this is supposed to be fun, so live it up!”
