Here's a note from another Katie just starting her Continental Travelnurse experience. (In case you're wondering, we do hire nurses who AREN'T named Katie, as well. :)
Hi Aine! I love Brighton! Thank you! What a wicked exciting city to be in! Thank you so much for placing me here!
I had my first shift today. Everyone was lovely! Such a new system to get used to, plus being on the ward again, but lovely and I have no doubt that before long I'll be up to speed.
The Australian couple who I am sharing the flat with are lovely! Really nice couple! The house we are in is great, I can see the ocean from my room! And we are perfectly situated close to hospital and down town!
So just to let you all is going well! Brighton is such a colorful city and I love it! Everyone on the ward today was super supportive and patient with me! Hope you had a good trip back to the UK.
Talk soon, Katie
We just love getting positive feedback from our nurses! Here's a wonderful one from Katie. Thanks for taking the time to write to us, Katie. It made our day!
"I hope you and the rest of the Continental team, and mainly Shannin who worked with me for nearly two years out there, know how much I appreciate Continental Travelnurse!! I would not have been able to be with my now fiance if it wasn't for your company taking me on board and finding me a job in London. With Shannin, and you Lisa, and lots of the team, I always felt like I could email/call/show up/talk/etc! It didn't feel like a big company where I would get lost in the crowd, it felt personal. I felt like a staff nurse in the hospital and on Victoria Ward the Continental Travelnurse nurses were very respected and treated like a staff nurse every day at work. Those nurses are truly special and work so hard for the patients. My struggling for the first month at the transition was worth the two years of amazing nursing experiences I had while in London!! TOTALLY worth it!! St Thomas' hospital and the nurses on Victoria Ward will always be in my heart, and Continental Travelnurse especially because you made it possible for me. Please tell everyone thank you. I am getting married to my handsome "Brit" in two months and we would not be where we are today without Continental Travelnurse Ltd. I hope to one day return. I will always have good things to say and advice to give other nurses so if ever you need someone for a nurse considering your company please send them my way. I have made life long friends there. Shannin will be missed at Continental Travelnurse, but Lisa, and I'm sure so many of the other staff, have been fantastic too! Just wanted to say my THANK YOU as I had not done before. You made these last two years at CTN very enjoyable and frankly, very easy!! THANKS!!!!!! xxxxxxKatie"
