We make it a priority to make our nurses feel special. That’s why every month, we recognize one nurse for going above and beyond the call of duty. For March… Marty is our Travel Nurse of the Month!
Marty was a new nurse when she came to us, but she has since developed into an experienced Med Surg veteran. When Marty came to us, she only had six months of nursing experience. Marty began her journey with only six months of nursing experience. Rose Ann McGhee, Marty’s recruiter, matched her at an Indian Health Services (IHS) facility in South Dakota.
Marty’s first assignment proved to be incredibly difficult. While nurses from other agencies ended their contracts early, Marty persevered without complaint because she knew that it was her responsibility to provide care to a community in need. She puts patient care above all else.
Marty continues to prove her commitment to her patients. She works as many as 60 hours a week to make sure that her patients receive the care they deserve.
Rose Ann raves about Marty. She affectionately refers to Marty as her, “sister from another mister.” According to Rose Ann, “there are not enough words to describe how lucky I am to work with such a loyal, dedicated individual.”
This is what Marty had to say about her experience: “There are three reasons I love being a travel nurse…..my family is expanded with each contract, my knowledge and experience are increased, and my camera becomes full of memories. Thank you, Roseanne, for helping me live my dream to care for people all across the U.S.”
We are all inspired by Marty’s work ethic. She sees a challenge as an opportunity and refuses to be intimidated by a tough situation. Whether it’s breaking into travel nursing as a new nurse or completing a difficult assignment, Marty continues to work hard for the well-being of her patients. In her mind, a healthy patient is the most important success metric.
Marty, from all of us at Health Carousel Travel Nursing, thank you for your continued dedication, and thank you for being our March Travel Nurse of the Month!
