How long have you been with Trinity?

Almost 2 years

What is your role in the organization?

Chief Clinical Officer

Do you work at the corporate office?

I share my time between my home office and the corporate office, in addition to spending time on the road visiting our clients all over the country.

Tell us about yourself.

I have 2 very special fur babies, Oliver and Biggie, who love to come to the corporate office and get spoiled by our team members. I love, love, love boating. I spend as much time as possible on my boat exploring the Carolina waters. The water has forever been my “happy place”.

If your co-workers had to describe you in one word, what would they would say?

I would hope that my co-workers would describe me as honest and humble. I feel that to be a leader, you must lead by example and integrity. I’m very protective of the culture that our founder has worked so hard to establish, and I hope that this shows daily in all that I do as a part of the Trinity team.

Is there a person, character or quote that has inspired you to “pursue excellence?

My mentor, Dr. Troy Gamble, established early in my career as a Nurse Practitioner to live and practice by the following: “Take care of your patients. Take care of the people that work for you. And the rest will fall into place.” In the work that we do every day at Trinity, our biggest responsibility is to ultimately take care of patients. We are working through the amazing healing hands of our nurses to take care of someone’s loved one. That is a huge responsibility. And it’s one that we take very seriously.

What do you appreciate most about our travelers?

I can relate to the joys and struggles of nursing. I’ve been there. I’ve been the nurse laying on the floor with my patient newly diagnosed with cancer. I’ve cried with patients and families as they have made hard decisions. I’ve slept in the hospital for 3 days during an ice storm to make sure that our patients had someone to care for them. I appreciate that our nurses go over and beyond their call of duty because it is a calling for them, as it has always been a calling for me. I know that God put me on this earth to take care of people.

How did you come to work at Trinity?

I come to Trinity from a hospital background as a Chief Clinical Officer and Family Nurse Practitioner.

What is your favorite part of working with the Trinity Team?

I love everything about working with this team. Trinity is a family, not a job. We share a common purpose as we also enjoy a feeling of community each day.

The Unique Advantages of Becoming A Travel Nurse

The Unique Advantages of Becoming A Travel Nurse

There are so many different reasons why a nurse may choose a traveling lifestyle and career. The passion to care for others, the curiosity to see the country, or even the excitement of a career that never gets dull can draw many nurses to start traveling. While there are a great number of reasons our travelers tell us they love their career choice, here are some of the things that make travel nursing such a fulfilling and unique profession:

 

 An Adventurous Lifestyle

From discovering the comforts of a small country town to relishing in the hustle and bustle of a big city, a travel nurse is given the opportunity to see the country and try out different place they call home. To be able to explore the country while getting paid is one benefit our travelers are always excited about. While some people never get the opportunity to explore outside of their home state, travel nurses are able to change up their living situation every time they sign a contract!

 

 A Wealth Of Experience

One of the biggest benefits our nurses speak of when discussing the positives of travel nursing is the experience they gain while traveling. Just like travel nursing allows you to explore different cities and towns across the country, it also gives you the opportunity to work in a variety of professional settings as well. A travel nurse could work with some of the top doctors in the country, take a contract at a prestigious hospital, or even learn new procedures and methods from his or her peers. The ability to learn from other healthcare professionals is a truly invaluable experience.

 

 Increased Pay and Benefits

This is a career perk that comes with the territory. As a travel nurse, your take home pay is greater due to the tax advantages of working away from home all while enjoying the great benefits of full time employment. Additionally many travel assignments offer higher pay or bonuses for difficult to fill positions or remote location. Travel nursing gives you the flexibility to create your pay and benefits packages with each assignment so that as your needs change so can your compensation.

 

 Making Friends Across The Country

Apart from the amazing adventures travel nurses have, there is nothing better than being able to share those memories with genuine friends. Meeting new people, discovering friendships, and building relationships with their coworkers at their new placement is all a part of traveling, and many Trinity travelers have met wonderful people through their work. Plus, thanks to social media, our nurses are able to stay connected with their new friends after their assignment ends!

 

 An Independent Lifestyle

It is often said that without risk, there is no reward. While it may sound intimidating to jump into a traveling career aware from friends, family, and familiar places, many of our travelers will wholeheartedly say that travel nursing is definitely worth it. Increased confidence and a new independent lifestyle are some of the benefits to travel nursing that are not often spoken of, but can be seen in many of our travelers after just one assignment.

 

If you’re a nurse that’s interested in traveling, we would love to speak with you!

A Few Reminders to Minimize Your Stress and Support Your Patients

Close up of a nurse touching hand of a patient in hospital ward


Nursing can be one of the most rewarding professions because you’re able to help others each and every day.

However, we have all seen and felt the common emotions of stress, anxiety and fear in a hospital setting. These feelings are not just experienced by patients and their loved ones, but healthcare workers as well. As nurses, it’s often crucial that you support others emotionally while healing them physically, but what do you do when you feel overwhelmed? Here are our best tips for managing stress in patients, families, and yourself.


1. Know Yourself and Recognize When You Are Feeling Stressed

In order to help others, it’s important to understand yourself first, and to acknowledge how you are feeling. Practice recognizing the feelings you get when a negative emotional response like stress or anxiety is activated in your body. Being able to recognize your own worry can help you manage it better. Being calm in a stressful situation will not only help you do your job better, but could also mean the world to a frightened patient. Whether your tell tale sign is feeling a knot in your stomach or an increased heart rate, take a few deep breaths before you speak or act. Whatever it is, know you can do it and do it well.

2. Listen Actively, Whether To A Patient or Your Loved Ones

Sometimes all your patient needs is to be heard, which is why listening is an important skill for nurses to have, and one you likely practice without even realizing it. It can be as simple as taking a few minutes to sit down, talk to your patient, and ask how they are feeling. Remember to listen actively, especially as you walk out those hospital doors. Most people just want to be listened to or asked how they are feeling, that includes your loved ones, your co-workers and new friends! So take the time to really engage in the conversations you are having outside of work, and reap the benefits of your finely tuned listening skills.

3. Help Patients Get Comfortable in “Your House” 

A common reason for patients to be anxious in a hospital setting is because theymay be unsure of what to expect or why it is happening. By guiding your patient through what you are doing and why you are doing it, you’re building trust and helping them comprehend their healing process. Throughout your career, you will have patients that are familiar with the hospital setting and its routines, but more often than not, you will meet countless patients who are experiencing their first hospital visit and are nervous about it. They’re in your house now, so show them a good time.

4. Promote Relaxation Through Your Actions

Has anyone ever told you to relax? Often in times of stress that word only serves to increase tension. The best way to help your patient relax is to simply ask them what you can do to make them more comfortable. While some patients may be able to communicate what they need, others may not be able to. In cases like these, guide your patient through a few breathing techniques, check their vitals so they feel comforted, dim the lights, or offer the services of the chaplain. Sometimes it can be as simple as using humor to lighten the mood, providing them with a warm cup of tea, or even asking them about their life outside of the hospital!

5. Practice Empathy

This is perhaps one of the most important tips we can offer. Being empathetic will not only show in how you care for them, but can be the true key in helping your patient and their family members relax. Knowing that the nurse caring for them genuinely wants to help can be all the difference. Empathy is also a critical skill for your every day life to build more meaningful relationships. Nurses have some of the biggest hearts out there! So it’s time to show it off: In every situation, do your best to show those in your life you truly care about their well being.

The Best Self Care Habits for a Healthy New Year

The Best Self Care Habits for a Healthy New Year

As nurses, your work allows you to help those in need. You are a constant caretaker and you have the big heart and laundry pile of scrubs to prove it. However, when your profession revolves around assisting the wounded and sick, it’s important to take care of yourself as well. These are the health precautions the most seasoned nurses take to stay their healthiest and happiest!


Keep It Clean 

This may seem obvious, but as a healthcare professional, you know all too well how far germs from coughs, sneezes, and other bodily actions can travel! From a young age we are constantly told to wash our hands, but in order to fight off germs and protect themselves, nurses go above and beyond the basic before-you-eat and after-using-the-restroom rules. Honestly is it possible to wash your hands too often? We also recommend thoroughly cleaning your scrubs in the wash and sanitizing your belongings like your phone and stethoscope with a wipe in order to ensure that any bacteria is fully removed.

 Eat, Drink, And Sleep…Seriously 

In order to best take care of yourself, you’re going to need to start with the basics. This means eating, drinking, and sleeping well and properly. While this may sound like a given, it can be easy to forget about yourself when you’re in the middle of a busy 10 or 12-hour shift. Sip water throughout the day and take short breaks to eat healthy snacks in order to keep your energy up. Eat, drink, and sleep like it’s a requirement for your job—because in a way, it is. Taking care of your patients starts with taking care of yourself. So pack a healthy lunch and head to sleep an hour early. You definitely deserve it.

 Keep Up With Your Routines 

Healthcare is important, there’s no denying it, but self care is vital too! Stay your happiest and healthiest by keeping up with your personal routines. Take your vitamins, get in a recommended amount of exercise, and don’t skimp on your own doctor’s visits. Also make time for yourself outside of work to hang out with friends, explore the area around your assignment or pursue a hobby. Your mental wellbeing is just as essential as your physical health, and it’s important to remember that you can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself first. Value your health as you would a patient’s!

Working long shifts, caring for with patients, and living in a new area can all wear down your immune system, but if you follow these tips you should be fine! Want more articles on nursing tips? Follow Team Trinity on Twitter!

Lifestyle

The first question to ask yourself as you consider a new career in travel nursing is, how does my lifestyle align with this choice? You want to ensure that the travel assignment you choose works well with your commitments, obligations and preferences. Travel nursing is an incredible experience, but it’s important to make sure that it’s also the right career move for you at this point in time. Some specific things to consider may be:
    
     	
  • Do you have specialized needs or obligations that require you to be in a specific location or area (like a big city or near an airport)?
  • Will the health insurance offered by your agency suit your needs?
  • Are your children or significant other able or willing to travel with you?
  • Do you have any individuals (parents, loved ones) that depend on you for care?

There may be many other important questions to ponder depending on your lifestyle and desires, but it is important you are clear about these factors before pursuing travel nursing as a career.

 

Eligibility

Next it is important to know: Are you eligible to be a travel nurse? Before you get your heart set on the travel nurse lifestyle, make sure you meet your agencies minimum clinical requirements to be a traveler.. Requirements will vary depending on your facility, specialty, and contract, but there are lots of options around the country. The travel nursing company you choose to travel with may also have specific requirements, so it’s best to talk to your recruiter to get all the necessary details. A few basic requirements can include a minimum of one year clinical experience, plus 6 months of recent practice in your specialty, being properly licensed in the state that you’re seeking employment (your agency can also help with licensing), being up-to-date on any required certifications, and having the required paperwork.

 

Mental Preparation

You may be eligible and free of any obligations, but it’s very important to be sure that you’re mentally and emotionally prepared to travel. There are no tests or paperwork that will determine this; it’s simply a question that can only be answered based on your own personal understanding of yourself. Apart from that, certain characteristics like the ability to be flexible, responsible, friendly, and confident yet humble are common among travelers. Add in a self-starter attitude and a healthy sense of adventure and you’re ready to go!

Why Trinity Supports Military Spouses and Families

Honoring Veterans “The sacrifices made by veterans and their willingness to fight in defense of our nation merit our deep respect and praise – and the best in benefits and medical care.” – Sue Kelly, former congresswoman

At Trinity Healthcare Staffing Group, we believe that veterans and military families deserve to be treated with the same high regard they had while serving our country and fighting for our nation’s freedom with. This means giving them the opportunity to provide for their families, to pursue a new life and profession, and ultimately follow their dreams. This is why we proudly hire veterans and military spouses at Trinity, both as recruiters and nurses.

It is this kind of commitment to excellence that is found in every member of Team Trinity, especially those who have previously served in the military. Veterans and individuals from military families have excellent work ethic, dependability, are highly skilled, and adaptable to new situations. We know this incredibly well as some of our current nurses have also served our country. This includes a retired officer of 20 years from the US Air Force, an active member of the WI Army National Guard, a US Army veteran of 10 years, strong and proud Military Dependents, and many more. We value each one of these nurses for who they are now and honor where they’ve come from.

Beyond the nurses on our team, we also have a strong team of veterans and military spouses in our corporate team. Trinity recruiter and veteran Ron York has been with our team since the first days of Trinity. Among his nurses, he has a legendary reputation for his fantastic track record of being reliable and genuinely caring. After serving in the U.S. Marine Corps for 12 years in various duties around the world, Ron has utilized his skills for serving others with integrity and dedication. We are so proud and happy to have him as a loyal member of our team.

Although not a nurse himself, Ron’s extensive knowledge of the industry has helped him become recognized as Recruiter of the Year in Healthcare Traveler magazine for 2009, 2010, and 2013. Travel nurse Courtney Wohlgemuth from Rockaway, New Jersey attests that Ron “has gone above and beyond making sure I am safe and happy. My assignments have been wonderful, as are all the people I am meeting.”

At Trinity, we understand that the healthcare industry is fast-paced and travel nursing offers any unique opportunities across the country for those in the healthcare field. Our client hospitals love working with veterans and military spouses, and at Trinity we are pleased to be able to fill RN positions nationwide with our country’s finest men and women.

In addition to actively recruiting veterans, Trinity has partnered with the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) to better support our travelers. Partnering with the Department of Defense (DoD), MSEP connects military spouses with more than 200 employers across various industries who have committed to recruit, hire, promote, and retain this unique and talented group of professionals.

If you’re a veteran looking to join our team as a recruiter or as a travel nurse, trust Trinity to provide you with the same dedication you’ve provided our country. We have many job opportunities across the nation, and we’d be happy to help find the perfect assignment for you.

me
 
Tell us about you, what do you enjoy doing?
 
I am blessed with a wonderful family; wife Kristin, our 11-year-old son Brayden and our 20-month old daughter Skylar, who I spend most of my free time with. I enjoy going to the gym and doing 9 Round, which is a kick boxing infused 30-minute workout.  During football season, my weekends are spent cheering on the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Carolina Panthers.  Outside of football season we enjoy traveling to new places, experiencing new things and just spending time together.  I enjoy learning/studying about new technologies and am an avid Apple fan.  I am also a huge The Walking Dead fan.
 
How long have you been with Trinity?
 
3 ½ years (April 8th will be four)
 
What is your role in the organization?
 
Systems Administrator at the Corporate Office.
 
If your co-workers had to describe you in one word, what do you think/hope they would say?
 
Supportive, caring, hardworking.
 
Chief Operations Officer Natasha Lee had this to say about Jason:
 
“Jason is one of those rare folks that you don’t encounter often.  Humble, and extremely resourceful.  His quiet leadership and impeccable work ethic endears him to all he works with and knows personally.  His ability to find solutions while juggling business demands makes him invaluable!  And as a person, he is one of the kindest and most sincere person you will ever meet, while being a husband and father who loves his family. We are all grateful for Jason!”
 
Is there a person, character or quote that has inspired you to “pursue excellence?”
 
The fact that the good Lord himself granted me this life to live is reason enough.  You only have one life so why not pursue excellence while you are here?
 
“It [what you choose to do] has got to be something that you’re passionate about because otherwise you won’t have the perseverance to see it through.”  - Steve Jobs
 
Do you have a memorable story at Trinity you’d like to share?
 
Every day at Trinity is memorable, but when we bring all of the Trinity team members from across the country to corporate it is really great! These are always memorable because we get to spend time together, there is training, but also eating Mr. Dan’s fish, oysters and shrimp (YUM) and just getting to know each other a little more.  These meetings are always the best!
 
What do you appreciate most about our travelers?
 
Their dedication for taking their talents and love for helping others to different locations to share their wealth of knowledge all over the country to those in need.
 
How did you come to work at Trinity?
 
After 9 years in the legal industry, I realized that I was stuck in my job\career and that by staying there I would not be able to move on so I decided that it was time for a change.  I saw a posting for an IT Technician position, applied for it and here I am.  Three and half years later and absolutely no regrets with my decision.
 
What is your favorite story of helping a Trinity nurse?
 
In my department, we don’t have a lot of direct involvement with the nurses but anytime that I get to reach out to them and assist in any way is rewarding for me. I recall spending late hours with a nurse one time because her computer was malfunctioning during a time that she had to complete testing so that she could begin a new contract the following week.  Each night, she would call with a new issue and after working through each of them, she was able to complete testing and begin her contract on time.  This one stands out because the nurse was trying to get back to work after taking time off dealing with family issues and illnesses and I could tell in our conversations how strongly she wanted to return to traveling.
 
What is your favorite part of working with the Trinity Team?
 
The family feeling that is bestowed upon our group every day is the best part of coming to work for Trinity.  Each day that we come to work, we come together not only as a team but as a family working together to get things done (do as we say we will do) and take care of our travelers.
