Congratulations to Republic Travel Nurse, Monique Parker.


Monique an ICU Registered Nurse is our Featured Travel Nurse for July 2019. She is currently on break for three weeks before beginning an EMR conversion assignment in New York. 

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


How long have you been traveling?

My first travel assignment was in January 2015, I have been traveling 4.5 years! Best decision EVER!


What has been your favorite city to work in?

One of my most favorite places to visit was Bethel, Alaska


Why did you choose to become a Travel Nurse?

There were many reasons why I chose to become a travel nurse, but most of all I love meeting new people, learning new techniques, and visiting new cities. 


What do you love most about being a Travel Nurse?

I love being a travel nurse because I get to see the world, while making great money, meeting awesome people – whom I now call friends – all while enhancing my nursing skills! I really enjoy how open and diverse this experience as a travel nurse has been. 


Describe your most memorable Travel Nursing Experience.

My most favorite place to visit was Bethel, Alaska. It was the most rural location, with a population of only 7,000, however I learned so much! The Alaskan Natives taught me how they hunt for food, and made me realize that I am blessed to have running water, transportation and affordable groceries. The Yu’pik language is one of the most unique languages spoken!


What advice do you have for a first-time traveler?

New comers…I will leave you with this : 

“He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8



“I love meeting awesome people whom I now call friends!” Monique Parker, RN
