Many thanks and congrats to the March 2016 Traveler of the Month, Patricia “Trish” W., and also our Rising Star winner, Roberta T.!
Traveler of the Month Trish is an OR CST working with Career Consultant Todd L. She just wrapped up a contract in Minnesota and is taking some time off for summer 2016.
Trish’s Traveler of the Month win is extra special because she was just recently awarded the Rising Star win for December 2015! When her win was announced we shared on the blog that Trish has been a CST for 21 years, that she and her husband are avid Harley riders, and that she travels with her cat Spunky.
Trish also had this awesome advice for new Travelers: “Be confident but humble about what you know, admit what you don’t know, and be flexible. Take pride in the job you do!”
Trish’s Career Consultant Todd, who’s had the pleasure of working with Trish since January 2015, says she is honest, loyal, communicative, and sincere.
“Trish takes her job very seriously, and she always seeks to resolve issues with communication and understanding,” says Todd.
We hope you enjoy an awesome summer of long Harley rides and other wonderful activities, Trish!
Rising Star Roberta is an RN, BSN specializing in PCU/Tele who’s been in nursing for two years and traveling for one year. Her recruiter at Medical Solutions is Career Consultant Bobby J., and she’s in beautiful Seattle for her current assignment!
“The staff is beyond welcoming and friendly,” says Roberta. “There’s also a potluck every other Saturday!”
As you can tell from her awesome pictures, Roberta is a pro at adventuring — which is one of her favorite things about Travel Nursing.
“The best thing about Travel Nursing is meeting new people and exploring new places,” she says. “There’s always a new sight to see and an adventure to take! I’m able to network and build bonds like never before through Travel Nursing, and I’ve also gained more experience and have learned to adapt and adjust to change quickly.”
As a Louisiana native, Roberta has a Southern charm that she says allows her to “build a rapport with patients as well as staff to provide the best care possible.” Her advice to new or aspiring Travelers?
“Be kind and willing to be a team player, be willing to go the extra mile and help or pick up an extra shift for awesome pay, and utilize your resources,” she advises. “Don’t be afraid to ask questions or consult with other nurses if you need help!”
Excellent advice, Roberta!
Congratulations again to the March 2016 Traveler of the Month and Rising Star! Thank you so much, Trish and Roberta, for your amazing talent, hard work, and dedication to providing excellent patient care!
