I Love Nursing

For Valentine’s Day, we asked some of our elite team members what they love about being a travel nurse. Here are their responses…

What I love is my career affords me to do what I love and love what I do. Healthcare is complicated and complex. Travel healthcare gives me flexibility to change up the location, the type of units I work which, in turn, allows me to be a happier version of me and my family reaps in that happiness. – Jessica B

Travel nursing has improved my work/life balance by allowing me to have input on my schedule and when I need time off. I was able to take 8 weeks off over the summer to spend time with baby girl and I wouldn’t have had that chance if it wasn’t for Fidelity On Call. – Emma S

What I love most about my job is being able to provide excellent patient care during a patient’s most vulnerable moments! – Nichole C

Before I was a nurse I was employed in the travel industry for almost 20 years. I worked for a hotel chain, an airline and finally as a travel agent. Fast forward to now and I get to do the 2 things I love the most in the world (besides my son) – travel and nursing. I’m hoping to venture out of Central Illinois in a few years and travel to fun places where I can work and adventure. And because of Fidelity On Call, I can do this!!! – Angela H

I love being a nurse because I get to work with a great team who are as passionate and caring about their patients as I am. I get to meet people from diverse backgrounds, and I am always learning something new. I love that I get to be a part of my patients’ journey to recovery and that I can have a positive impact on their lives. – Kevin T

Simply put: I love being a nurse. I love helping patients during their time of need. I love educating families about the healing process. I love forming life-long bonds with my co-workers . . . even if I only work with them for 13 weeks. I love advocating for patient safety. I love teaching the next generation of nurses. P.S. I also love being paid what I’m worth, which seems to be only obtained through travel nursing. – Heather W

My number one goal is to provide outstanding care and to build trust from my patients and their loved ones. I truly appreciate that Carla is always there for me anytime I call. – Kennetria H

I love LOVE! I love my family and friends and LOVE taking care of people. I love my recruiters. I love my employer Fidelity On Call, I just love LOVE TO LOVE! – Mary L
