Getting to know more about FlexRN Nurse Colleen!
What is your nursing specialty?
“Before corrections, I worked in LTC for almost 10 years.”
How long have you been a nurse?
“I’ve been a nurse for about 7 years now, and with FlexRN for a year and a half.”
Why did you choose to become a nurse?
“My mom was a nurse so that definitely influenced me. I like to help people of course and I also think back to scary situations when I was the patient and the nurse I had made me feel so much better and more comfortable, I hope I can do that for my patients too.”
As a nurse, what is the most important thing you want people to know or do related to COVID19?
“My best COVID advice for everyone is to try to stay at home as much as you can. Go shopping once a week, try to eat at home. Also wearing gloves out in the stores is pointless just wash your hands and don’t touch everything. Remember precautions aren’t about just you it’s about protecting everyone!”
What are some things you enjoy about working with the team at FlexRN?
“I like FlexRN because they’re flexible (haha pun intended) but really you can pretty much make your own hours, transfer facility/contracts, and reach them anytime. They don’t harass you like other agencies sometimes do 😊”
Any hobbies/activities you enjoy outside of nursing?
“I like to travel, hike, anything outdoors, and chill at home with my elderly dachshund.”
