FlexRN works with the best nurses and each month we recognize one of them with our FlexRN Nurse of the Month award. Congratulations to JoAnna B. on being FlexRN’s Nurse of the Month for March!
JoAnna has been a nurse for 7 years and has been on board with FlexRN for the last 3 years. Her specialty in nursing has been centered around the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), but she has also worked the craziness in the Emergency Department. She states, “Every day in the NICU, I work with some of the smallest little fighters in the world, who fight stronger than any big person I know.”
When asked what helped her decide to go into the field of nursing, she told us the following heartfelt story. “When I was a little girl, my grandfather used to call me his little nurse. I learned how to give him his insulin shots by practicing with an orange. I was so scared the first time I gave him his insulin shot. With his sweet eyes, he said, “That didn’t hurt at all.” It was then that I knew that I wanted to be a nurse and help others.”
She says she chooses to work with FlexRN because it is an amazing organization. “FlexRN offers a tremendous amount of support. There is never a time where I can’t pick up my phone, dial FlexRN, and have someone answer my call. Both my Recruiter, Kelly and Scheduler, Mary, throughout the years have been outstanding. They are always there for me throughout the entire process, and how can I forget the compliance crew? They always keep me on my game, which is very much appreciated with a busy schedule.”
Kelly and Mary had only wonderful things to say about JoAnna as well. “JoAnna is super sweet and very hard working. Every place she works at with us, they just love her, and will try to extend her contract(s) for as long as possible.”
In her spare time outside of being a nurse, JoAnna enjoys traveling. “I go to the Dominican Republic on a surgical mission trip every year, where our team typically does 50-60 surgeries in 5 days. We also see approximately 500-600 individuals in the clinics. Throughout the rest of the year, I travel as much as I can. I think my favorite place thus far is Turkey, but there is still a lot of the world left to see! I also love being outdoors when it is warm. I am certainly ready for warmer weather in the DMV area!”
Join us in congratulating JoAnna B. for her incredible work as a nurse. Thank you for your dedication to your patients, colleagues, and to our agency. We are grateful to have you as a part of our FlexRN family.
