Congratulations to Republic Travel Nurse, Wanda McNeese!
TRAVEL NURSE OF THE MONTH
Wanda is an ICU Registered Nurse and our Featured Travel Nurse for March 2020. Wanda is currently on assignment in Vero Beach, Florida.
We asked Wanda to share her experience and adventures as a Travel Nurse…
How long have you been traveling?
I have been traveling for 10 years
What has been your favorite city to work in?
I have no favorite, every community has it own beauty. Once I had a staff member ask how I could find all these cool things to do – when she had lived here and did not realize the they existed.
Why did you choose to become a Travel Nurse?
I became a travel nurse because I was ready for adventure.
What do you love most about being a Travel Nurse?
What I love most about travel nursing is being able to see the country and work at the same time. I consider this life choice as a working vacation.
Describe your most memorable Travel Nursing Experience.
My most memorable experience in travel nursing is welcoming staff and fellow traveler at a “Teddy Bear” party during a Epic conversation in Ketchikan, Alaska. We had lunch then went out to look for the bears living near the cabin.
What advice do you have for a first-time traveler?
My advice is, know yourself. We all start traveling for different reasons. Have a good support system, my first assignment was nearly my last. I fell ill the first week of my assignment., I was alone and one one knew me, I spend 3 days in ICU. Frightening.
