Hello fellow nurses of the world. I am a travel nurse by trade, and love to travel. I don't know if ever I will slow down and settle into one location. A few years back I was in Texas where I came across difficulties trying to communicate with my patients, especially Spanish speaking ones. So I decided to take classes at the local community college, after a semester, I really did not get anything out of it. Months of trying to practice I came across another nurse who told me to travel, and go abroad. She recommended me to go to Costa Rica and study with this company www.spanishformedical.com They offered Medical Spanish courses. To keep it short, it was the best experience of my life, I loved living with a family, and learning Spanish.
The after coming home, I honed in more Spanish and was more comfortable speaking. I decided to venture out some more and become a travel nurse. So both Medical Spanish and travel came into my life and skills just in the right moment. And now, I love being a travel nurse.
