I’ve been a nurse since 2019. I worked in the suburbs of Chicago on a med surg unit until May 2021 when I decide to do travel nursing! I chose travel nursing because I really wanted to get out to the west coast to get into more of the outdoorsy things it has to offer. I also thought it would be great experience for me! Travel nursing has given me a lot of confidence in myself as a nurse.

Anything that gets me outside! Hiking, camping, backpacking, kayaking, and skiing. One new hobby I’m starting to learn is rock climbing!

What do you always pack? 

My outdoor gear

Any advice for future travelers? 

Make friends! Ask some of the people you work with if they want to grab lunch sometime! Makes the assignment so much better!
