    (Me) Are you a traveler? (April) Yup, I am. (Me) Do you have any idea where the pharmacy is? (April) Nope, but I’ll help you find it.

The life of a traveling CRNA is interesting, varied and nuts at times. I met April in Tucson, AZ. She was amazingly energetic and loves life. She lives in Alaska, that in itself is wonderful to me. Tucson was the second travel job I had worked. It was at a large University Hospital with a surprising amount of trauma. I was lucky enough to work with April. She is a remarkable CRNA. She is knowledgeable and caring. She always does the right thing for her patients. She is an extremely hard worker that is willing to go the extra mile and work as much as needed. I very much admire her.

I have been a traveler for the last 2 years. In that time, I have had the opportunity to work all over the country. I am lucky to have the ability to travel in my own motorhome and have my husband join me. I have been a CRNA for nearly 30 years. Until I started traveling, I held two long term jobs. I felt “safe” working a fulltime job. Due to a few life changes, I threw safety out the window and quit my fulltime job. I was sure I would go broke, loose everything and end up on the streets. I was terrified.

Best thing I ever did!
These last two years have been such an amazing time for me. As for work, everywhere I go, I learn something new. Every place I go to, allows me to spend, around three months, to learn about the area and the folks that live there. I have been able to travel between contracts. I have been down through the wine country in Mexico, pet gray whales down the Baja Peninsula, and traveled all through Canada. Also, I’ve traveled all through the USA, staying in National Parks and State Parks. There is so many more places to go!

    April is the only person that I need to call when exploring anesthesia elsewhere. She has traveled and experienced so much in the anesthesia world. I am so excited about her blog and website. Thanks for being willing to share with those of us who wish to travel too!

    I worked with April in 2013 for about a year while at Group Health in Seattle, Washington. April fit in well with our group, performed her job at a high level, and was an asset to our department.

We would have hired her to a permanent position if the opportunity arose.

    April’s credentialing website is amazing and so organized! I was able to use the info on the website to prefill paperwork for April to complete, which saved us both time and effort. I wish all our providers utilized a similar format for their information!

   I got to know April while she was on a travel assignment at my hospital. Not only is she a great CRNA but she also has extensive knowledge about 1099 work and traveling as a CRNA. I really appreciate the knowledge she was able to share with me as my career progresses forward with the hopes of a 1099 position in the future.

    Hi everyone. I met April when I was working as a traveling RN. My company was unable to procure housing or a car, so April extended a warm welcome to me and her accommodations came with a wonderful dog. Since then April and I have remained friends. I am looking forward to reading more about her adventures on her upcoming website.
