May 2017 Traveler of the Month, Maria K., visiting Th White House!

Many thanks and congrats to the May 2017 Traveler of the Month, Maria K., and also our Rising Star winner, Elena L.!
Traveler of the Month Maria an RNC-OB specializing in Labor and Delivery. She works with Medical Solutions Career Consultant Joe T. and has been in nursing nearly five years and Travel nursing nearly three years.

Maria is currently working in beautiful Nantucket, Maine — which just so happens to be her favorite location thus far.

“Summer here is a dream and the beaches are pristine,” Maria says of Nantucket. “I also love sailing, so the island has a lot to offer.”

In fact, Maria sails often and this sailing aficionado has even participated in a few regattas!

“The best thing about Travel Nursing is growing in my skills as a nurse and making new friends,” she says, adding these helpful tips for new Travelers:

  1. “Never be afraid to ask questions.”
  2. “Make the most of an assignment. Explore the area you are in! Learn something new!”

Great advice, Maria!

Rising Star Elena is an OR nurse who works with Career Consultant Julie F. and is currently on assignment in El Centro, California.

Julie says she loves working with Elena, who’s been with Medical Solutions since December 2016.

“Elena is a wonderful nurse,” says Julie. “She is a leading example of being the best in healthcare. She steps up and achieves anything that is asked of her. She never complains. Elena really knows the meaning of going above and beyond for patient care and her team. She is just a delight to work with. Simply the best!”

Julie can’t say enough good things about Elena, whom she says is “a special person inside and out.”

“You can tell from the first moment of speaking with her that she is very patient and kind. Elena is an amazing Travel Nurse because she knows how to be flexible and is very dependable,” says Julie. “She’s able to adapt to change and is a true team player. She is also a very kind person — she can go anywhere and her team would love her.”

Thank you for your great work, Elena!
