Chelsey W., R.N., Shares Her Travel Nurse Tips
When asked what piece of advice she would offer new travel nurses, Chelsey said “Never be afraid to ask for help. There are lots of things you’re not going to know right away – policies, doctors, where things are kept, the computer system – but everything is going to be okay. You just need to be flexible and not panic.”
Chelsey has been a travel nurse for the last two years. She’s traveled across the U.S. from New Hampshire to Washington State with her two cats. She transports them in a large dog crate which allows them to have their litter box, food, water, and a comfortable place to rest on the road. She even purchased a luggage holder for on top of her car to give them all the room they need.
Chelsey said she loves traveling nursing and would do it for the rest of her career if relocating all the time wasn’t so hard. She said out of all her assignments Washington State was her favorite location. On top of being a great location everyone at the hospital where she worked was very helpful.
Chelsey W. has been working for Advantage RN her entire travel nursing career. “A lot of travelers I’ve met tell me that they work for more than one company but I’m happy working solely with Advantage RN.”
According to Chelsey, her happiness has a lot to do with her relationship with her recruiter, Christina. “I know that if I need something Christina will handle it for me.”
Chelsey is a superstar traveler and we’re so lucky to have her as a part of the Advantage RN family.
