RNnetwork works with the best travelers in the country (and probably the world). Each month we recognize one of them with the RNnetwork Traveler of the Month award.
Here’s a little bit about each of our 2020 winners.
January: George Cox
George has been traveling with RNnetwork as an ICU nurse on and off for five years in between breaks for other duties, including military obligations. “As a member of the military, sometimes things come up without a lot of advanced notice,” explains George. “The RNN staff make it an easy process.”
Travel nursing has given George the flexibility to serve those that protect our country. He spent a year in a combat support hospital in Afghanistan and says it was the most impactful experience of his career. “People often ask what my favorite part of nursing is,” shares George. “I can tell them very easily and without hesitation, there is absolutely nothing better in the world than taking care of service men and women in harm’s way and making sure they go home to their families.”
When he’s not serving others, George enjoys hiking, photography, and living like a local. He feels that it is important to make the most of each assignment and can often be found exploring local communities. “I like being in new places and learning new ways of doing things,” shares George. “I feel that it makes me a well-rounded asset for the hospital I am working for.”
George’s Travel Pledge
I show up for my scheduled shifts, help out where and when needed, do my job to the best of my ability with a smile on my face, and treat patients and their families how I would want to be treated.
