Presentation on Travel Nursing

As a member of the Student Nursing Association on campus, I have the opportunity to attend presentations by nurses on various topics. One of the presentations was by a Longwood alumna who is currently a travel nurse. She discussed her life as a travel nurse and answered any questions we had as students. I enjoyed hearing what she had to say, and it allowed me to consider a field of nursing that I hadn’t thought about going into. It can be scary as a nursing student and not knowing what field of nursing you fit into, so being able to talk to a current nurse about her experiences really helps student feel better about their options. This nurse made it clear that we have time to find what area we fit into best and not to worry if everything seems overwhelming right now. I really appreciated everything she had to share with us, and am glad I got to learn from her.
