Adventures, tips, and myths surrounding the life of a travel nurse
We had the pleasure of chatting with SarahBeth, an experienced travel nurse who has traversed various corners of the United States, from the lush landscapes of Hawaii to the rugged beauty of Oregon. Join us as we dive into her adventures, glean some travel tips, and uncover the myths surrounding the life of a travel nurse.
Here’s what travel nurse SarahBeth shared about her travel experience.
What’s your favorite city you’ve worked in so far and why?
Grants Pass, Oregon holds a special place in my heart. I’ve had the opportunity to work there three times already, and each time, I discover something new to love about it. Oregon, overall, is a breathtaking state, with its diverse landscapes and vibrant communities. Despite the occasional challenges like wildfires, the beauty of Oregon never fails to captivate me.

Best hack or tip for making life on the road more comfortable?
One of my go-to hacks for saving on flights is using Priceline Express. You can often score flights at 30-50% off, which can make a significant difference, especially when you’re traveling frequently. Additionally, investing in quality travel essentials like a comfortable neck pillow and a compact yet durable suitcase can make your journey much more enjoyable.
What’s a myth about being a traveler?
One common misconception is that travel nurses always get stuck with the toughest assignments. While it’s true that we’re often called upon to lend our expertise in challenging situations, it’s not always the case. Many of us have a wealth of experience and can handle a variety of assignments with ease. Instead of viewing difficult assignments as punishment, I see them as opportunities to showcase my skills and make a positive impact wherever I go.

How do you like to spend your free time while on assignment?
I’m a firm believer in striking a balance between exploring new destinations and taking time for self-care. I enjoy immersing myself in the local culture, whether it’s through sampling regional cuisine, embarking on scenic hikes, or simply spending time with fellow travelers and locals. However, I also cherish moments of solitude, whether it’s watching a movie, strolling through a nearby park, or indulging in some much-needed relaxation at a spa.
As SarahBeth continues her journey as a travel nurse, she exemplifies the spirit of adventure, resilience, and compassion that defines this unique profession. Whether caring for patients or exploring new destinations, her passion for nursing and love of travel shine through. We hope this inspires you to embrace life’s adventures with open arms.
Thank you to SarahBeth for sharing a little about her travel nursing journey with us!

To celebrate these amazing nurses within Uniti Med’s travel nursing community, we have partnered with The DAISY Foundation, and we’re pleased to announce Uniti Med’s inaugural DAISY Award honoree.
The DAISY Foundation Award is a renowned recognition that celebrates nurses for their exceptional contributions in healthcare. The foundation was established in memory of Patrick Barnes, whose family created the award to express their gratitude to the nurses who cared for him during his final days. The DAISY Award recognizes the remarkable work nurses do every day, often going unnoticed or underappreciated.

As a travel nurse, Jessica touches the lives of many patients, providing them with the highest level of care and compassion during their most vulnerable moments. We are proud to recognize her as our inaugural DAISY Award winner.
Here’s some of what her nominators and colleagues said:
“Jessica is not only a phenomenal individual, but somehow an even more incredible nurse! Each facility she has been contracted at has not only extended her multiple times but has relentlessly hounded her to stay on full-time; a testament to how much value she brings to the team!”
“I am blessed to have met Jessica and privileged and honored to work with such an awe-inspiring nurse. Jessica’s love for her patients and the nursing profession is palpable. She is extremely educated, experienced, and thorough. She is the definition of a patient advocate.”
