Congratulations and shout-outs to the June 2015 Traveler of the Month, Samantha S., and also to our Rising Star winner, Kristina K.
Traveler of the Month Samantha has three years of experience in nursing and has been a Travel Nurse for eight months now. Her specialty is Mother/Baby/Newborn Nursery. Samantha’s Career Consultant at Medical Solutions is Adam G.
A fun fact about Samantha is that she grew up in a place that many folks — including Travel Nurses — aspire to visit: Yellowstone National Park, where her father works to this day.
So, with the benefit of growing up in such a great spot, which location has been a favorite for Samantha?
“Boston is my favorite location because of the history and proximity to other states, as well as the active community,” she says.
Among the many perks of Travel Nursing, Samantha especially appreciates the freedom from hospital politics.
“The best thing about Travel Nursing is that I am able to just go to work and do my job without being involved in the politics of the facility,” says Samantha.
What advice would Samantha share with new or aspiring Travelers?
“I would just say to do your best and take every opportunity to learn as much as you can — and never forget why you got into nursing,” she advises.
Rising Star Kristina is an ER RN on assignment with Medical Solutions near the coast in South Carolina. Her Career Consultant is Shane M. who says Kristina is a truly fantastic Travel Nurse with a commitment to providing great patient care.
“She has a great attitude and wants to help the hospital in any way she can,” says Shane.
Congrats again to June 2015’s Traveler of the Month and Rising Star. Thank you, Samantha and Kristina, for all of your hard work and your commitment to excellent patient care!
