Recently featured in Healthcare Traveler, Wendy Hankins, RN, spoke to the devastating financial losses her and her husband incurred as a result of illness. “We lost everything we ever had,” said the travel nurse, “Our cars, our house, our furniture—everything was gone to pay off debts.”
Working as a staff nurse for a year and with no financial ties other than $1 million in medical bills to pay for her husband’s treatment, Wendy decided to travel the country as a travel nurse with American Traveler.
Now with free housing, free medical insurance, travel stipends and a boost in pay, Wendy and husband Robert can enjoy life once again. Robert, unable to work, takes care of the house and dogs while Wendy works three shifts a week at the hospital.
Although Wendy’s situation is unique, having to ‘reinvent’ one’s life in this day and age is not uncommon – especially in healthcare. Unfortunate financial circumstances are more prevalent than ever, joblessness is at an all time high and people entrenched in decades-long careers have found themselves waiting in the unemployment line.
