Blog post by: Kaitlyn Price, Chief Flight Nurse
I was working as an emergency/trauma RN for the past four years, and I wanted to gain some new experience and push my nursing career to the next level. I had been job hunting for a short while, trying to figure out what would be the best fit for me. I had done a little bit of flight nursing in Vancouver, BC on my days off from the hospital and thought it might be an interesting option to look into.
I sent my resume to Going Home Medical. I went in for an interview and soon after I received a phone call from the president asking me if I wanted to start right away and hop on a flight to Prague. I was sitting on an outbound plane headed to the Czech Republic that very same night. I had never been to that city and was quite excited. The medical transfer went very smoothly. It was interesting to see a hospital in a completely different part of the world.
Shortly after returning home from Prague, I was called out on a trip to Copenhagen, where I had to drive north into a small town in Sweden to bring a patient back home. Not long after, I was on my way to Glasgow. I had a day off to myself, and I decided to take a train north to Aberdeen and explore.
This was my first month as a flight nurse with Going Home Medical. I am confident I have found an incredible job with a great company to work with, and I am excited to see where this next month takes me.
