Getting to know more about FlexRN Nurse Melendy B.
How long have you been working as a nurse? And with FlexRN?
I have been a nurse for 17 years now and working with FlexRN for almost a year now.
What is your specialty in nursing?
I have worked in several different areas of nursing but corrections is my favorite and specialty.
Why did you choose to become a nurse?
I chose to become a nurse because I love helping people.
Any hobbies/activities you enjoy outside of nursing?
Outside of nursing, I enjoy spending time with my family. I enjoy sightseeing. The most beautiful, soothing, relaxing place that I have been to so far is Niagara Falls. I highly encourage anyone who has not been there to go. Pictures do NOT do it justice. That is one amazing place that God has created. I also enjoy sewing. I make masks and scrub hats. I have not made a quilt yet but I intend to do that one day.
What are some things you enjoy about working with the team at FlexRN?
I enjoy working with FlexRN. I can contact Kelly anytime I need to talk to her. Everyone has been very helpful at FlexRN for anything that needs to be done or explained.
Would you recommend FlexRN to other nurses? Why?
I will and have recommended Flex RN to other nurses because they are an amazing team to work with and will be honest and upfront about everything.
Do you have any advice you would like to pass along to other travel nurses?
My advice to travel nurses is this. When you work somewhere, work as if you are a house nurse, not an agency nurse. I’ve had many house nurses tell me that they are surprised that I’m an agency/travel nurse because I do my job like I’m supposed to. Also, learn the protocols and procedures because that will save you in the long run. Protocols, procedures, and policies are your best offense. Use that wisely. I have enjoyed meeting new people in this traveling journey God has me on. I look forward to meeting many more and seeing many more amazing places.
