DAISY Award Winner Bre’yanna Thrives in the Travel Nursing Life

January 17, 2019 | Clinician Stories

It takes a lot of heart and top-notch nursing to win a DAISY Award. And that’s exactly how Aya traveler Bre’yanna impressed a clinic patient last month. The patient shared that Bre’yanna was one of the best nurses she’d ever encountered, praising her compassionate care and kind demeanor. Bre’yanna — who started travel nursing after six years as a staff nurse — was honored to receive the award from her facility but insists she did nothing out of the ordinary. “I thanked the patient for the nomination, but honestly I didn’t think anything of it after that,” says the DAISY Award winner. “I strive every day to give all my patients the best care while always showing kindness.”

The daily routine of staff nursing grew tiresome for Bre’yanna, who wanted to experience more. That’s when she turned to traveling. “Being a travel nurse has allowed me not only flexibility for vacations and school, but also the opportunity to learn so much more than I could ever learn at one facility as a staff nurse,” she explains. “I’m always looking for opportunities to increase my knowledge and learn new, creative ways to interact with patients of all ages.”

Aya Knows Travel Nursing is All About Relationships

It’s not just the relationship between a nurse and a patient that matters. The bond between a traveler and their recruiter is just as important. “Aya is different from any other travel company because of the individualized support that I’ve been given since the very beginning,” said Bre’yanna.

“My recruiter, Bekah, has been more than just a recruiter — she’s been an angel,” Bre’yanna continues. “I’ve never encountered a recruiter who is concerned about more than just the job but also how you are. She made it her business to learn things about me as a person outside of being a nurse.”

In addition to the strong connection with her recruiter, Bre’yanna appreciates the flexibility that traveling offers. “One of the most beautiful things about being a traveler is being able to spend more quality time with my family and friends, whether that’s at home or on vacation.”

Sound like something you’d like to try? Start your life as a travel nurse today! Who knows, you just might be the next DAISY Award winner.

Brinkley Quinnie- Dad Congratulation. It is so nice to see you get recognize as a Daisy Award winner. Receiving the Daisy Award shows the nursing profession just how hard you work. I saw a poster at the clinic the other day and it was talking about the Daisy Award. I immediately remembered my daughter won the Daisy Award and I begin to smile. As great as an accomplishment as it is to earn this prestigious award it goes hand and hand with how much Breyanna loves her job working with in the nursing community. When I listen to her talk about her patient both young and old I can tell the passion she has for other. So to make it simple , as great as the Daisy Award is it shows people what we already knew. Her dedication and hard work is second to none.
