Wonderful Feedback From Our Nurses and Hospitals

Continental Travelnurse is very proud of the high standards we set for our nurses and how they meet and exceed those standards time and time again. We're also proud of the hospitals and other medical facilities we partner with and the high standards they meet as well. We only recruit the best and we only work with the best. But sometimes we take for granted how often nurses thank us for their work experience, the homes we find for them to live in during their travel nurse adventures and the lifelong friends they make. Similarly, when a hospital tells us how great a nurse has been, we think, "Of course! We know they're great. That's why we recruited them." So here's a rundown of some recent feedback from all the people we work with. If you want to be part of the Continental Travelnurse team and use your valuable skills to work in the UK and travel throughout the Continent, check out our website now.

From the Matron at Royal Sussex Country Hospital to one of our nurses LaShawn:

I've reviewed the budgets and spoken to both Unit managers regarding the recruitment issues we have.  It's with great relief I confirm that we can re-start your contracts for 13 weeks from the 5th of November.

It has been a pleasure to have you and the team are very pleased with your work and contribution.  It's refreshing to have a different perspective from the experience you bring with you as international nurses, something I haven't discussed with you much but hope we can catch up on.

The Unit Managers are very keen to extend and it's with great pleasure that we can say yes.

From LaShawn to her personal contact at Continental TravelNurse:

Hello Jenni,

As I was strolling home from the hospital the other day, I was smiling and thinking of you!  Dennis, Auggie and I are enjoying our stay in Brighton and feel so fortunate to be living at the Marina.  The location is very near shops and work and the marina is a quiet, safe and a very enjoyable place to live.  Many thanks for finding such a place for us!

Next week, Dennis, Auggie and I are going on holiday for a week and Palm's Properties (Sharon) agreed to check in our dear cat every day while we are gone.  I wanted to let you know how grateful we are to her for helping us during our vacation and thought I'd share with you the kindness given.  We intend to pay her something for helping us out, but again thought it was more than generous of her to offer to help us.

From an official at Arctic Day Care:

It has come around again, when I am in need of an excellent Continental TravelNurse [employee].

I am in need of a nurse starting with us on the 13th November.

[Continental TravelNurse recruit] Jennnifer is leaving me at the end of November.

Please can you find me another Continental TravelNurse of her calibre, with maybe an interest of staying with us for at least 4 contracts in a row?

Please can you let me know as soon as you can.

Kind regards.


From two nurses to their personal contact at Continental Travelnurse:

Time, certainly, has flown and it has been a great time.

As you mentioned, our contract is until the 9th December. We will leave sometime during the previous week, with our flight booked for the 6th December.

Thanks for your assistance with matters on the homefront. We feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to live in a flat in such a position. Certainly the highlight of our stay here.

Again, thanks.

Louis and Paddy

From one of our nurses, with a humbling reminder of what some do with their vacation:

I have some fantastic news! St. Thomas A+E have signed me on for another contract! It is also one that will probably run all the way into May next year. I am so so so happy with the accommodation that I am in. My housemates have turned into my best friends and we travel every week to another country. Continental TravelNurse really has been so great in helping me out and honestly never had an issue at all and just love East Dulwich, which has made my UK experience what it is!

I finish this contract around the 3rd of Dec and restart work 31st Dec. [During December] I will be in Nairobi, Kenya to work with children in orphanages.

An official in critical care at Guy's & St. Thomas' offers a performance rating for one of our nurses. it includes "excellent" in every category with this additional feedback:

Tom has been an absolute pleasure to work with and has been a highly valued member of the team. He possesses the ability to care for a variety of critically ill patients whilst supporting those working around him and keeping the nurse in charge informed. He has excellent communication skills with patients, relatives and the MDT alike, and is able to lift the mood of the team with great ease. He will be sorely missed and I am very sad that he is moving on. I would have liked to have continued to work with Tom and develop his skills further as he would have made an excellent shift leader. I would not hesitate to re-employ Tom should he want to return!

Thanks again to our nurses and our hospitals and our team at Continental TravelNurse. It's because of everyone working together and doing such a great job that we're successful. We'll never take that for granted again!
