Our Travel Nurse Stories series continues…
For this segment, we asked some members of our elite team of travel nurses what made them consider switching to travel vs working directly at a hospital? Here are their responses.
Charis says that while she enjoyed being in the float pool at the hospital, she didn’t always like that level of chaos. Traveling provides her the same opportunity of having lots of different experiences without the constant change.
Clayton says frustration over not being allowed to use his paid vacation days at a hospital pushed him to make the switch to travel nursing.
In this story, Dana says she wasn’t getting compensated for all the extra hours she was working while in management, and found the pay to be better through our agency.
Grace was 2 years in to working at a hospital and thought she needed more years of experience to move to traveling. Her interview with Fidelity On Call, made her realize she was very capable and gave her the confidence to make the change.
In this story, Holly says when she was working for a facility as a staff nurse, they were low census for several months and kept getting sent home. So it was very attractive to her to have guaranteed hours and not have to worry about getting called off.
Sue tells Carla that working for Fidelity On Call gives her the opportunity to learn new things, meet new people, and have new experiences.
In this story, Tyler says he knew he had a skill set that he could provide to other hospitals, and traveling allowed him to share his knowledge.
In this story, Xavier says he got to a point where he really wanted to grow, but the environment he was in didn’t seem to be expanding. Making the change to travel has provided him the opportunity to have new experiences.
