Goodbye, Roz!

We like to think of Continental Travelnurse as a family. Here's proof. After many years of being a marvelous and essential part of our team, Roz is moving on. Her goodbye prompted a flood of emails and phone calls from current and past travel nurses and medical administrators who wanted to wish Roz the best and share their positive memories of working with her. This is just a tiny sample:


I have found the news very sad that you are leaving Continental Travelnurse. I enjoyed the time I worked in London, mainly due to the support you and Continental Travelnurse gave me. You were always there to help, let it be nursing, carrying bags or buying a bike!

Your support and contact didn't stop when I returned home to Melbourne. The messages of birthday wishes, Christmas greetings and the NMC renewal correspondence were always unexpected and happy to be received. I will miss them. Must get onto that registration now.!

Good Luck with your return to Singapore.
Thank you again for your help and support over the past years.
I will be in touch with Continental Travelnurse at the end of this year, just to see if there are any jobs for 2012.


Hi Roz,

Thank you so much for my birthday wishes. Its really lovely to know you haven't forgotten about me. So thank you.
Wow, you're heading home. Good for you. I remember how hard that decision was to make. I'm sure you will be thrilled to go home. 11 years compared to my 3 years is such a long time and 6 yrs with Continental Travelnurse, I'm sure Leslie is very sad to see you leave.

You were great whilst i was there and still are now i have gone. Feel free to keep in touch.
I wish you all the very best for your return home. Take care and travel safe.


Hey Roz,

I just wanted to write a short email to thank you for all your hard work and encouragement over the past 2-3 years to finally get me over here and working (at last!!). As you are no doubt currently aware, moving to another country to work is a challenging experience, but you have made the process a lot smoother for me and made sure I was well prepared to take on this challenge. Thanks for your patience with answering all my questions and for not calling me in the middle of the night (Melbourne time) to assist me through the process. Lastly, good luck, best wishes and bon voyage! I hope you find life in Singapore is exciting and that you can rediscover old friends, family and favourite places (and some Singapore Slingers) on your trip home.
Best Wishes,


Hello Continental TravelNurse Team,

I arrived home today to a lovely surprise. The card was thoughtful and unexpected. I wanted to acknowledge you all for your kindness and also awareness. Sometimes your office seems far from the reality of day to day life at St Thomas's. However, today you have reminded me that there is an office of thoughtful individuals supporting us along the way.

Roz, once again. Best of luck with your endeavors. You have been very supportive with me over almost four years that I have been involved with Continental. I am sure you will be missed by the team. Big Thanks for always being only a phone call away.

I do not have all the emails of the team there. Perhaps you could both send my Thanks and appreciation along.

Have a nice weekend. And Happy Birthday for your upcoming Special Days in the next 12 months.


Hey Roz

Thanks for sending me the welcome pack etc. i'll have a read through in the next few days. The CRB arrived quickly so that is good that it has been sent off. I am almost through the online training stuff i only have 2 more to go and have booked my BSL and manual handling for thursday 14th july.

I know today is your last day so i just want to say a MASSIVE thank you to you Roz for all your help you have given me in making my dream come true and being able to come back to the UK. I look forward to meeting the team and starting work with Continental Travelnurse. I wish you all the best in the future.


This is a wonderful tribute to Roz and to the atmosphere of teamwork and friendship that we cultivate at Continental Travelnurse. Check out our website for more information on how you can become a part of the Continental Travelnurse family and use your nursing skills to explore the UK and Europe while working in an environment where you are well valued and well paid. No one can replace Roz but we will continue to maintain the high standards she exemplified.
