Many thanks and congrats to the January 2016 Traveler of the Month, Thomas “Matt” P., and also our Rising Star winner, Fabienne L.!
Traveler of the Month Matt is an Oncology/Med-Surg RN currently on assignment in Virginia. He’s been in nursing for six years and Travel Nursing for about a year and a half. Matt works with Career Consultant Shane M.
Matt says he doesn’t really have a favorite assignment location, but has especially enjoyed working in Virginia, Iowa, and Ohio.
“Mostly because of the people I worked with at these facilities,” he says. “I have made some great friends at all three.”
The best thing about Travel Nursing to Matt is seeing the different areas of the United States and meeting new people. He loves the beach, but has yet to take an assignment at a beach location. Sounds like Myrtle Beach — which he calls his “dream assignment/permanent home” — is in his future at some point though!
“I travel with my wife, Jess, and our three Labrador retrievers Cocoa, Sadie, and Mellow, and, of course, the good Lord above,” says Matt.
Matt shares the following tips for new and aspiring Travelers: “Be yourself and be genuine. Always be willing to help out and go the extra mile. We are able to travel because places need our help for many reasons — be grateful for the opportunity to do God’s will and help people.”
Rising Star Fabienne is a Med-Surg RN who was recognized for her awesome hospital evaluation and excellent work. Her recruiter at Medical Solutions is Career Consultant Scott H. and her most recent assignment was in the beautiful state of Wisconsin.
Scott says Fabienne is a really great Travel Nurse that he’s been happy to have the opportunity to work with.
“Fabienne is a very hard worker and extremely detailed in her daily tasks,” says Scott. “She’s very thorough and has good personal skills.”
Congrats again to the January 2016 Traveler of the Month and Rising Star! Thank you so much, Matt and Fabienne, for your dedication, skill, and hard work in delivering excellent patient care!
