What does the term “diversity” mean to you? How does it apply to your career as a nurse? As a traveling nurse? So many people talk about how diversity is a complicated topic, but the reality is the perceived complexities surrounding its issues are just that – perceived. Most diversity issues have a straightforward answer, and that’s to treat people like people and give everyone the respect, dignity and representation they deserve. For nursing, it’s no different.
You’re more than a worker and this is more than a job. Taking care of others as your day-to-day routine in locations you are unfamiliar with can be a daunting task. So, what is it that motivates the amazing travel nurses of this country to do what they do?
At the beginning of every May, we celebrate a week of Nurse Appreciation. Created in honor of the nurses that help and inspire us every day, Nurses Week is May 6th to the 12th. That’s seven solid days of nurse appreciation! But our nurses deserve so much more than a week. Showing appreciation for nurses should be done year-round – it’s imperative for them to feel appreciated.
May is here, which means Nurses Week is upon us! At Freedom Healthcare, we do our best to ensure our nurses are treated well and know that their hard work is appreciated! So, even though Nurses Week 2018 is only May 6th-12th, we’re celebrating all month with giveaways that show how much we care about our hardworking travelers!
By understanding the history of those around us, we can more easily honor their lives, sacrifices and memories. This is especially true when it comes to those who have helped heal and care for others – nurses.
Whether you’re new to the nursing game or a seasoned nurse, it’s important to have a nurse mentor. In fact, travel nurses may need mentors even more because they are so focused on individual placement, they may lose sight of their long term career goals.

We’re excited to share this milestone with our travelers as it’s been a triumphant ride getting here and we could not have done it without YOU. What makes travel nurses choose us as their agency?

Not many people would disagree with the statement that nursing is one of the most underrated professions. It isn’t easy, in fact, it’s extremely demanding. Being around ailing patients, working 10 plus hour shifts, often without breaks, and having no idea what you will encounter every time you go into work is exhausting.
