“I have been with American Traveler for six years. They’re fair and treat you like family.”
-- Alissa, RN, American Traveler
Travel nurse careers at American Traveler include a great deal of personal satisfaction, says travel nurse, Alissa. Finishing up an assignment in Fall River, MA, the ER specialist emailed the gang at American Traveler with some highlights of her trip.
“So far, my most exciting adventure was to Provincetown,” says the travel nurse. “I’ve explored mansions along the shore in Newport and seen a New England thing done with food that I’ve never seen before: “Chicken Chow Mein on a white hamburger bun…bizarre!”
Alissa said the variety of seafood in New England is amazing. From all-you-can-eat crabs at the Lobster Pot to quahogs, stuffed scallops and fried clams, “divine,” said the travel nurse of six years.
What Alissa says she enjoys most about her travel nursing career is the constant challenge of working new environments, while meeting friendly people along the way and learning new things about the practice. She continues to travel with her two cats, Lucy and Nayla, and says her American Traveler Consultant, Jenny is there when she needs her most, looking out for the travel nurse’s best interests wherever she can.
Alissa’s taking a short break from her travel nursing career to visit family in Vancouver. She’s working on her BSN online and looks forward to her next travel nursing job with American Traveler.
