STORIES THAT STAND OUT
FROM QIN TEAM MEMBERS

“A facility reached out via the account manager about a new travel nurse they really liked, but who needed a bit of extra support and coaching to truly shine. That’s what we’re here for, and I was excited to help. As I processed the nurse’s information, I realized I knew her—she had actually precepted me as a new grad. She had been the teacher, I the student, and now our roles were reversed. But our mutual respect shined through and it was an honor to be able to help someone who had helped me in such a meaningful way.” - Morgan L.

“A travel nurse on assignment for nearly a month had been without a working Vocera, impeding her workflow, time management, and ability to deliver effective patient care. After reaching out to her charge nurse and facility manager to no avail, she got connected with the QIN team. By submitting a formal client communication form to the facility on her behalf, in a professional and respectful manner, within 2 days I was able to help secure for her the tools she needed to do her job successfully, including a new Vocera. There is no issue too big or small for us to go to bat for a Health Carousel nurse.” - Derek D.

“Mistakes happen. If it’s a situation we can help a nurse through, we will. Like the time I worked with a long-tenured, successful travel nurse whose personal lapse in judgment outside of work had put her in hot water at work. She had to undergo a professional board review, and I helped her navigate that by explaining what was happening and acting as her clinical voice. Through this process I was able to work with her recruiter and establish a partnership with the facility, so that she was ultimately able to remain working there. It was a win-win-win for all involved, and it’s one of the aspects of my job I really love—serving as a connection point and supportive advocate.” - Ryan K

“We had a traveling nurse—an older gentleman—who was divorced with no family. While on assignment several states away from where he lived, he had a massive heart attack that required open-heart surgery. The prolonged work absence resulted in termination of his contract, with the option to return once he recovered. But, being freshly post-op without the ability to drive himself home, he ended up stranded. Even though he was no longer a Health Carousel nurse, my belief is once in the family, always in the family. I was determined to find a way to get him home. I got permission to work with our internal travel and housing department, and we managed to make arrangements to get him home to recover.” - Christy C

“Coaching is one of the most fulfilling ways we help. I had the opportunity to coach a travel nurse who had a unique situation in that he traveled with his wife, and they both worked in the ER. They preferred to travel together, but he was encountering issues where his previously accepted scheduling requests were no longer being acknowledged, leading to both he and his wife having to be on extension. He was at a loss for how to rectify the situation. I validated his concerns and coached him through how to approach the topic in a professional manner with unit leadership so that he was heard. He was able to work things out, and finish out his contract instead of ending it early. And he learned negotiation tactics he can apply to future issues.” - Ashten J
