At Next Travel Nursing, our team of recruiters is thankful to work with RNs across the country who represent our agency in such a fantastic fashion. It’s through your efforts that we can all make healthcare work better by delivering quality patient care. In our eyes, you’re the true stars 🌠🌟💫!
As we do each month, we want to recognize one travel nurse in particular who has shone bright at his assigned healthcare facility. Please join Next in congratulating our December 2017 Travel Nurse of the Month, Sylvain in North Carolina!
Sylvain started working with Next in April. He has since extended with us three times and is well-loved at his facility.
His favorite thing about RN life is being part of a collaborative team where doctors and nurses work together to achieve a common goal. He loves conferring with physicians at the end of a shift when they ask how the night went and review the patient’s status.
Sylvain decided to become a nurse when he was a medic with the Special Forces in the Army 💪. He loved working with the Army PA (physician assistant) and observing his interactions with patients. The PA suggested that Sylvian go to nursing school, and through a series of twist and turns, he found his occupational calling.
Sylvain loves critical care because he can care for two very sick patients at a time and figure out their stories by putting the pieces together. He loves the collaborative aspect of having to work with different teams to create positive outcomes for his patients.
Here’s what Sylvain’s Next Travel Nursing recruiter, Debbi Laatz, had to say 💬:
“Sylvain has always been such a pleasure to work with. He always takes the time to include a sweet message and funny emoji when he sends me his time sheet. He is educated, has a quick wit, and is genuinely a nice person. I am honored to represent him and I wholeheartedly endorse him as our unequivocal Travel Nurse of the Month. Go Syl!”
Sylvain is a dad to two sons and two daughters, who are his pride and joy. He also gives back to the youth in his community, coaching middle school basketball 🏀 and football 🏈.
Let’s all give Sylvain a hand for his incredible work 👏!
Critical care nursing requires a special type of person. Your patients depend on you as an ICU nurse during their recovery process as you monitor and safeguard the quality of care delivered, act as an advocate for both them and their families, and closely monitor their bodily functions. In intensive care environments, a patient’s condition can turn rapidly, making this area of managed care one of the more demanding specialties.
At Next Travel Nursing, we are proud to serve ICU nurses across the country, helping to connect them with facilities and patients in need of their skill-set.
