Fidelity On Call CEO Advocates for Women Business Owners

Fidelity On Call CEO, Pat Drake, attended the 2018 National Women’s Business Owners Conference for the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) in Spokane, Washington.

Moderator: Nina Roque, Executive Director of the National Women’s Business Council. Panelists: Kathleen Diamond, Dr. Terry Neese, and Virginia Littlejohn

One of the highlights was the panel of women who talked about how they changed the plight of women business ownership within 1988. This was a challenge many women in business have faced, as less than 30 years ago, women who wanted a business loan in many U.S. states were required to provide a signature from a male relative. The “final straw” for these ladies was when a woman business owner had to take her 17 year old son out of school to co-sign her loan!

Pat has helped to pave the way for improvements for women in business to thrive. She continues to help empower and mentor women by supporting the local chapter of NAWBO through volunteer work and sponsorship of events.

But, in the final few days of the contest things heated up as the “money muscle” went on the grill and a cloud of smoke rose that obscured any competition! Way to throw down that final sizzle . . . Ben Anderson who is now King of the Grill! Ben won a Weber Genesis II Copper 4-Burner Liquid Propane Gas Grill with Bluetooth thermometer and cover.

Fidelity On Call Receives 2018 Joint Commission Certificate of Distinction

In 2006 when The Joint Commission started accrediting travel nursing agencies like Fidelity On Call, we were excited to get in their program. Although we have always been dedicated to quality, we felt that, with the receipt of the Gold Seal from the Joint Commission, our customers would see that we meant what we said.

We are proud to report that The Joint Commission was in our office for our 2018 audit and we passed with flying colors. They told us they couldn’t find anything wrong. As a matter of fact, we are voluntarily doing several things they wished were done by others.

Our internal team – who put so much effort into ensuring we are continually in compliance and moving forward in all of our processes – always takes a sigh of relief when the official audit is over. But, we appreciate our relationship with The Joint Commission. Our day-to-day representative and their auditors are always there to help if we have questions or to share vital industry information with us so we avoid the pitfalls.

So, here’s to another Gold Seal! We vow to never let down on our commitment to quality.

The Top Ten Myths of Travel Nursing

There are a lot of companies that offer travel nursing assignments. And, there is a plethora of information available regarding travel nursing. However, after 20+ years in the staffing industry, we have found so much of what potential travelers are told is not representative of what you need to know to be successful. Therefore, we would like to clarify it.
