Registered Nurse Packs Up Husband and Dog for Their First Travel Nurse Job Family Adventure

Seattle travel nursing job on the road to financial independence

After transcribing seemingly endless patient records for more than seven years, 37-year-old travel nurse Kirstin K. enrolled in nursing school. Two years later, husband Donald sold his business and along with Dutchess their pooch, Kirstin traveled 3,000 miles to Seattle, for the first of many travel nurse jobs with American Traveler, says the Med/Surg RN.

“I decided I needed a more fulfilling career and one that could afford me financial independence,” said Kirstin of her Seattle travel nursing job. “We were homeowners with many commitments, but figured if we didn’t do it now – follow the idea and dream of travel nursing – we might never and regret it.”

Kirstin is smitten with Seattle. Everything is so fresh and affordable, says the first time travel nurse. “A huge bouquet of flowers is $10 and the smell of fresh fish and seafood at Pike Place Market makes you want to live healthy and live in Seattle.”

The Telemetry Nurse said it took a lot of planning to make the Seattle travel nurse job happen for the family. She thanks American Traveler travel nursing consultant, Kelly, for accommodating the needs of her family and for finding a place that Dutchess really likes.   

“I’m a firm believer in going with my gut and Kelly’s professionalism and travel nursing knowledge proved my gut right.  Kelly told me that she was sure she could find travel nursing accommodations for Dutchess, because she knew the dog was like a child to me.”

The Seattle travel nurse and family are staying at a deluxe, lakefront flat south of the city; compliments of American Traveler free private housing. Amenities include washer/dryer, king size bed, covered parking, an outdoor patio, fitness and tanning rooms and plenty of land for Dutchess to run around.

“My favorite travel nurse adventure was in Leavenworth, Washington, a Bavarian Village east of the Cascade Mountains. We ate German food, went to wine tastings and beer gardens, and stayed in a cabin with a hot tub on the Wenatchee - surrounded by rushing whitewater and snow capped mountains the whole time.”

Our client services have achieved The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval™ for health care staffing services and our travel nursing team staffs more than 80% of hospitals ranked the best by U.S. News and World Report.
