Nicole an ER Registered Nurse, is our Featured Travel Nurse of the Month for May 2019. She is currently on a travel nurse assignment in Fort Meyers, Florida.
We asked Nicole to share her experience and adventures as a Travel Nurse…
How long have you been traveling?
I have been traveling for less than a year.
What has been your favorite city/town to work in?
I haven’t worked in many yet but my favorite has been Ft. Myers Florida, everyone is just so nice and I have made some great friends on that assignment.
Why did you choose to become a Travel Nurse?
I have always had a love for traveling and what better way to explore the country than be able to live and experience each place instead of visiting for a couple days. I must say its hard to wrap around leaving a comfort zone to go to the unknown but it has been the best decision I have made thus far in my career.
What do you love most about being a Travel Nurse?
I love meeting new people and exploring places and cultures I haven’t yet been exposed to. Travel nursing really allows you to immerse yourself in a place and gain a wealth of knowledge not just in nursing and the health care system but on the vastly different cultures and beliefs that exist throughout the country. Each place offers new experiences and new practices that you might not see in other areas as well as new terrain and adventures if you are willing to accept new challenges and push yourself.
Describe your most memorable Travel Nursing Experience.
My time in Florida however has been amazing! I have been able to take an air boat ride and hold an alligator, go kayaking through the mangroves in the Keys, and visit some of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen! I have met the best of friends in Florida and cant wait to get back.
What advice do you have for a first-time traveler?
Be humble, be confident, and say yes to new experiences and friends.
