Featured Travel Nurse - Nicole G.
Nicole had her heart set on travel nursing from day one. She attended job fairs in college and talked to travel nurse recruiters in preparation for graduation. After finishing school and getting a year of clinical experience behind her, Nicole set out travel nursing to Reno, Phoenix, Austin and Seattle and looks forward to future assignments in Alaska and New England.
“I was planning to travel nurse for only a year,” said Nicole. “But I’ve been doing it going on five years now and I still love it.”
Nicole thrives on mountain climbing, hiking, camping, white-water rafting and other outdoor recreational activities. She’s renewed her American Traveler assignment in Denver several times already and recalls a group of traveling nurses who first met at an Arizona travel nurse job a few years back.
“We call ourselves the “The Phoenix Girls” and still arrange a get together somewhere in the country at least once a year.”
Meet Your Travel Nurse Receptionist — Fran Golden
She’s the first voice you hear when you call American Traveler
Customer service is one of the most important aspects of success for a travel nurse agency and receptionist, Fran Golden, is an expert. “First impressions are the ones that last, so I always try to let callers hear the smile in my voice,” says Fran, a Springfield Massachusetts native and mother of three.
Fran honed her people skills in various professions, including cosmetology, apparel and retail, and is a key player in our travel nursing client communications.
“I have worked with Fran for the past twelve years. She is extremely friendly, accommodating and dependable. The traits Fran provides to American Traveler clients on the phone are also some of the same reasons she is a favorite among her co-workers in the corporate office - she has a big heart and warm caring nature. Fran is a pleasure to work with and a person of high integrity.”
- Mary Kay Hull, Vice President of Recruitment
Fran has been assisting travel nurses at American Traveler for more than four years, loves her garden and is often found gallivanting through boutiques and stores in South Florida, as she’s an avid shopper. Her favorite places to travel are Paris and Las Vegas and when it comes to dining out; Fran likes Mexican and Italian best.
Although career is a high priority for the customer service professional, she adores spending time with family and friends and, along with her husband, have adopted three older dogs from the Humane Society, “because older dogs are often the most difficult to find a home.”
“I just want to keep doing what I’m doing — I enjoy it so much. The reason travel nurses can hear me smile when they call … is because I’m truly smiling.”
