I have a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and currently practice as a certified pediatric nurse in Atlanta, GA. For several years now, I’ve had the privilege of being asked to precept nursing students and new graduates. It’s the best! On so many occasions I’ve watched the confidence boost happen as students and new grads realize, “I can do this”!. To be able to provide guidance and have colleagues remember me as their preceptor has made my job all the more gratifying. In 2010, I was presented a hospital-wide award by the CEO for demonstrating the organizations core values: excellence, integrity, nurturing, respect and teamwork. I love caring for my patients, bright days, laughing with my colleagues and spending time with my family. Most of all, I love being a nurse! It has given me joy, laughter and a sense of teamwork and purpose on so many occasions. My hope is to show others just what makes nursing so unique. Visit me at amandvwest.com.

The global marketplace makes many demands on workers. Moving to a new city for a month or two is often an expected part of job performance. After a long work day, who wants to spend an hour figuring how to work the cable box? Where is the best grouper dinner, beach hangout or the best wine selection? Is there a kayak launch for a downtown river tour? For Avenida guests, all these small but important details are attended to – help and answers are just a phone call away. Whether they need the name of a gourmet grocery, advice on reputable daycare, or recommendations on the right restaurant for a special occasion, the Avenida guest has no worries. And they know that Avenida proprietors Claudia and Dan Gorman treat every customer as the only guest. How is this possible? It’s possible because a unique story that begins in Brazil and comes together in Tampa, resulting in a relocation service that combines South American hospitality and North American efficiency. The story begins in the mid-90’s when a mutual friend introduced Brazilian native Claudia to Marine Corps sergeant Dan, then stationed in Rio de Janeiro. The couple married and started a family, regularly visiting their favorite vacation spot -Tampa. The family flourished over the next ten years as Claudia’s Brazilian hospitality and people skills made it possible for her to build a successful cleaning business. Meanwhile, Dan became a Marine officer, developing the virtues that would later serve his young business: integrity, adaptability, discipline and commitment to the highest standards. When he left active duty, Dan and Claudia knew one thing: they wanted to move to Tampa. Soon after arriving, they recognized that their unique skills could help others who were temporarily or permanently relocating to the Bay area. And so Avenida was born. Avenida guests enjoy all the benefits that come from working with a locally owned business operated with international sophistication. Each Avenida home comes with a customized welcome book giving in-depth information about goods and services specific to the area. Avenida homes are tastefully decorated for personal appeal and are set-up to the highest standards. This kind of service is what Avenida guests enjoy. Dan and Claudia’s latest focus is providing the absolute best in temporary furnished housing for the Traveling nurse and medical professional. Building upon the experiences of both Dan and Claudia’s personal and professional travels, Travel Nurse Housingcom has been created to cater to the specific individual needs of the traveling nurse. With many customizable options, Travel-Nurse-Housing.com is an easy to use, reliable, and economical way for the nurse staffing company or even individual nurse to book their temporary furnished housing without spending a lot of time and effort looking on their own.

Patrick Fuerstenau here. Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here. I've been involved with Marketing and Advertising for over a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she's ever had... So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. So here I am at Medical Solutions and am going on my 3rd year as a Marketing Specialist for a great travel nursing company. This by far has been a major blessing in my life. I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time... As long as they'll have me. Now that we've got the career timeline out of the way... Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I've been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn't at least kick the ball around, I don't know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts... Music, Visual arts, Film, Design... pretty much anything and everything arty. I'm happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager! And I love writing about travel nursing.
