Read American Traveler’s Interview with an R.N. living in featured housing in Maui
Tara is a Registered Nurse First Assistant (RNFA), who has taken her decade-long experience in urology and the perioperative setting to one of the most coveted beach destinations on the planet: Maui, where she now works in the island’s main hospital in an exciting Hawaii travel nurse job.
Travel Nurse Q&A
For R.N.s who might be looking to take a leap like Tara, here is an enlightening Q&A session about the family friendly nature of travel nursing. Tara is joined on her assignment by her husband and two daughters, ages 4 and 8.
AT: What is your favorite thing about your featured housing in Maui?
Tara: Without the private housing option this adventure would not have been possible for us. We have the beach right out our front door. We enjoy breakfast on our private lanai with an ocean view and watch the whales out in the bay. At night we fall asleep to the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach.
AT: What kinds of things do you and your family like to do in Maui when you’re not working?
Tara: Maui is one of the most culturally blended locations we’ve ever visited. From the food to the language, to the free cultural parties and events, there is always a way to share in the Aloha spirit.
AT: Has this travel nurse job given you the opportunity to work in an R.N. specialty?
Tara: Absolutely. I am working as an RNFA with the opportunity to broadly expand my skill set through experience gained in surgeries in which I had not previously assisted. My RNFA training focused on robotics and other minimally invasive surgery. This community based operating room has offered me the opportunity to assist in more open surgeries, such as c-sections and trauma-related cases. The experience of this assignment has been priceless both inside and outside the OR.
AT: Do you think you’ll take another travel nurse job with American Traveler when this one ends?
Tara: Yes. In fact, I just signed a contract extension (for another 13 week assignment in Maui) this week!
AT: Do you have any tips for R.N.s thinking about becoming a travel nurse?
Tara: Don’t be afraid to let your recruiter know exactly what you want out of your assignment. Communicate your dreams and goals. My consultant, Amy Roll and I, spoke almost daily while I was making my transition. Everything I’ve asked, American Traveler has gone out of their way to make happen. We are living in paradise and I have my dream job. The most important tip I can offer is… Don’t be afraid to take the leap. The adventure that follows will be worth it, and your recruiter will be there with you every step of the way.
