Confidence, resilience, resourcefulness, and humility are some of the main values our PCU nurse Christin instills in her practice. An experienced travel nurse like Christin who’s now working her way into nursing administration truly knows the ropes of the industry. We had the pleasure of speaking with Christin to find out why she started traveling, what’s stood out to her thus far, and what advice she has for prospective travelers. [click to continue…]
Has anyone ever told you that you “can’t” do something? The majority of you probably just nodded your heads. Stacey, one of our team ER nurses, was told the same thing when she asked a question in a travel nursing-focused Facebook group: can I start travel nursing as a new grad with less than one year of experience? But Stacey didn’t let that stop her! On today’s blog, we’re asking Stacey why she jumped into travel nursing and what it’s been like so far since she took that risk. Though no travel nurse’s story is the same, a story like Stacey’s can help guide other nurses in similar situations who are looking for guidance! [click to continue…]
Ever heard of the description of someone who “wears many hats”? Well, ER Nurse Lisa is just that! We interviewed one of our fantastic Soliant nurses recently to share her story, insight, and advice for other nurses looking for a similar journey.
This amazing nurse has many talents and many responsibilities, including being a mom, wife, PRN nurse, full time summer travel nurse, and nurse educator. During the school year, Lisa is a university nursing instructor along with working PRN shifts at a hospital in her hometown of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Since she has summers off of teaching, she started travel nursing last summer and is back at it again this summer. [click to continue…]

Sure, everyone likes to travel for vacations, but traveling to work and live in an area where you’ve never been for months at a time? Would that be safe? What would happen at the end of each assignment? What about insurance coverage and future job security? These were all the concerns from a respiratory therapist named Donna who’d been living in north Florida for 30 years before she decided to travel with Soliant. She never thought she would want a change from her stable position of >20 years at the same facility in Florida. This all changed when she connected with Matt Mitchell, a Soliant Nursing/Allied recruiter, this past December. [click to continue…]
Some travel assignments take us far… and some take us just far enough. For Soliant OR Nurse Hollie L., an assignment only 3.5 hours away from home meant a chance to experience new places while being close enough to family. [click to continue…]
After spending 19 years as a certified surgical technologist, our featured traveler Celia decided it was time to take the leap into nursing. And now five years later as an operating room nurse, her passion for making lives better for patients is still as strong as ever. Celia talks to us about her most recent travel assignment with Soliant — one that led her to the beautiful Sonoran Desert in Tucson, Arizona.
It was Celia’s first time traveling to Tucson, AZ and, soon enough, she realized there was much natural beauty to be discovered in this diverse desert town. It was here that Celia was able to cross off one of her bucket list items: the Grand Canyon.
