Like so many nurses, she had gotten burnt out at bedside during the pandemic and was looking for respite from the hospital. That’s when she was introduced to Uniti Med Partners and an amazing nursing side hustle. Mackenzie started by helping a few friends find their next travel nursing assignment but her list of travelers continues to grow.

Nursing Side Hustle

“I’ve always been able to easily make friends with travelers in the past, there’s a camaraderie to it,” MacKenzie said. “Now, I can give them advice on traveling, recruiters, different companies, and my insider experience. If they choose to work with me as their recruiter, it’s great because our relationship is much more than just recruiter and nurse, we’re friends!”

Mackenzie is currently working at the hospital and doing recruiting on her days off. “One thing I’ve really enjoyed traveling and recruiting with Uniti, is the ability to treat my coworkers! I’ve bought pizza, brought in Crumbl cookies, small things like that. I just try to spoil them for all of the hard work they are doing!”
