Meet Polly! Originally from Anoka, MN, Polly has been with MSSI since 2019. Polly’s travel team absolutely adores her, but we are pretty sure that there will be a few things on here that will surprise even her closest traveler! Read on!
What is your best piece of advice for new travelers? My best advice for new travelers is to make sure you do the research on traveling. It can seem like a lot of work on the front end, so it is important to breathe and take one step at a time. It is also important to communicate with your recruiter any concerns you may have, right off the bat. There are some great travel nurse groups on Facebook, some of which are dedicated to first time travelers. It’s a great idea to join a group and gain even more advice from your fellow nurses.
If you were a traveler, where would you take your next assignment? I would definitely want to go to Martha’s Vineyard. (Oak Bluffs, MA) I was lucky enough to go to the Hamptons years ago and that area is beautiful!
If you were a traveler, what specialty would you want to be? If I were a healthcare provider I would want to be in Hospice. It would be fulfilling to be a part of such an important time in life for your patients and their families. Hospice can be very lonely and I think I could provide comfort during those difficult times.
