Congratulations, Deborah! This award is clear evidence of the excellent work you do.


A facility supervisor praises Bryan for helping the unit

A facility supervisor praised Bryan, saying he saved the day for their unit.

The supervisor explained, “Bryan does a great job here. After an epic update, our time projections were messed up. We use the time projections to find the number of RTs we need on the floors and in the ICUs. We can run the number manually, but it takes longer than an hour. Bryan created a spreadsheet, and now we can do the process in five to ten minutes. His ingenuity and dedication saved our charges a lot of time and, more importantly, gave them some piece of mind. He is a great RT.”

Your small contributions are always appreciated, Bryan. Your team thanks you, and so do we!


Aya RNs, Ashley, April, Olivia, Zachary, Bailee and Jacqueline, receive praise from their facility manager

Aya travel nurses, Ashley, April, Olivia, Zachary, Bailee and Jacqueline, received remarkable feedback from a facility manager who is grateful for her help and hard work.

The manager said, “I want to commend the float pool traveler staff. All of them were extremely proactive with their patients and helpful to each other and the unit as a whole! They did a tremendous job of making sure they helped each other and communicated with me, they were all very autonomous and handled the workload without trouble. They covered each other’s breaks and made sure all the patients’ needs were covered. It was such a pleasure seeing them all work together as a unit and contribute to our patient population. We could not have done it without them.”

In addition, here’s what their recruiters had to say about working with them:

“Ashley always has a positive attitude and is very detail oriented.”

“April has been an outstanding nurse to work with over the last several assignments. We have been from Arizona to Utah and now to California together. I love her honesty and trust in the travel process. You can really tell she focuses every day on providing the best patient care for those around her, and the write-up by the management staff at the facility proves that. Way to go April!”

“From the beginning, Olivia has always been very kind. She came in as a first-year nurse from Texas, took a leap of faith to head out to California and has absolutely excelled in her first assignment. I could not be more proud of her. I am so excited to see all that she continues to accomplish in her travel career!”

“Zach is one of my favorite RNs and humans of all time. He always puts patients and staff first to make sure he is doing the best possible job. He has a heart of gold, and every hospital he goes to want him back. I love Zach!”

“Bailee is great! She is amazing to work with and a great representative for Aya!”

“Jacqueline is one of my strongest communicating clinicians. There is no surprise she’s received such a positive review. In fact, this is her second assignment in which she has been recognized by the hospital for her superior patient care and teamwork. I couldn’t be more proud she is being featured again and even more so that she proves to be a remarkable representative of Aya!

Keep up the amazing work! Your patients team members are grateful for your excellent care, and so are we!
