Travel Nurse

Congratulations to Doreen Degnan, RN


Doreen Degnan is our Featured Travel Nurse of the Month for January 2019. She is currently on a travel nurse assignment in Vero Beach, Florida.

We asked Doreen to share her experience and adventures as a Travel Nurse…


How long have you been traveling? 8 years


What has been your favorite city/town to work in? Yuma, AZ


What do you love most about being a Travel Nurse?  I love travel nursing for the flexibility and the money that I can earn by doing what I love.


Describe your most memorable Travel Nursing Experience. Most memorable travel experience was my assignment in Yuma, AZ. I really enjoyed learning about the area. Who knew it was the lettuce capital of the world? I had no idea so much vegetables were grown in the middle of the dessert. Weekly trips over the border to Mexico were always fun. I also met a lot of great people. 


What advice do you have for a first-time traveler? Be flexible. Keep an open mind. Make new friends. Explore, explore, explore. Try and save some money weekly, so you can take some time off between contracts.

Most importantly…Have Fun!!! ~ Doreen
