“To me, travel nursing is more than the money I make,” Erin explained, “It's a means to reach out to those who are less fortunate...and the need is so great that it just cannot be ignored.”
Erin chose to travel with Trinity because of the amazing relationship she has with her recruiter, Cait Osborne, “From day one she has been genuine, friendly and outgoing, understanding, and helpful. I consider her a friend as well and really enjoy working with her!” Erin said of Cait, “She is honest and trustworthy, which are crucial components to a happy traveler/recruiter relationship. She worked tirelessly to land me the contract I wanted with the specifics I requested.”
Get to know Rebecca:
She and her husband, USMC Gunnery Sergeant Eric Steiner, met on a blind date back in 1999 while he was on a temporary assignment for the Marine Corp as a recruiter in southern New Jersey. Although the two have been happy together ever since, they faced their fair share of challenges due to Eric’s military status. After marrying in January 2002, the pair moved in April from Kathleen’s home state of New Jersey to Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California, with the new orders Eric received. They spent the first several years of their marriage being apart for several months at a time, Kathleen explaining that the longest stretch was 10 months apart followed by a quick one month home together and then another 9 month deployment. “These first few years were very difficult,” Kathleen explained, “My husband was part of the first wave to invade Iraq, and communication was nonexistent at that time.” Without phones or Internet during the first deployment, Kathleen and Eric corresponded by writing letters, often not hearing from each other for 6-8 weeks while waiting to receive a response. “There were countless sleepless nights for me as I lay worrying about him and his fellow Marines’ safety. The slightest sounds would wake me, as I would jump up and look out the window to make sure that the car door I heard was not someone coming to tell me horrifying news. As a military spouse, this is something that cannot be avoided, sadly enough,” she shared before continuing, “By the grace of God, my husband returned home safe to me time and time again and for that I am truly blessed! My heart always goes out to those military spouses who were not as fortunate as I was to have my loved one return home safe.” After new orders were received, the pair moved in April 2005 to Jacksonville, North Carolina and was stationed at Camp Lejeune where Eric would serve the last seven years of his 20-year career and finally retire in 2013. While in North Carolina, the pair gave birth to two boys and Kathleen found what she described as her “forever work home” in Trinity Healthcare Staffing Group. During this time in North Carolina, Eric deployed several more times, but with two small children at home to raise on her own, Kathleen found the separation more difficult than ever. “Being both mother and father and full-time employee was never easy, but as a military spouse and mother (with no family nearby to assist), you just learn to push through and get the job done,” she explained. “My faith, the friends I made at home, and my work family at Trinity all were there for me to help when I needed them most. My Trinity co-workers were so supportive, whether it was to offer help when they could, or an ear to listen when my frustrations got the better of me, or a shoulder to cry on when things got rough, or just to share a laugh when the world’s worst Valentine’s gift came in the mail!” “Trinity Healthcare has always been there to support me and my family not just during my husband’s active service but still to this day while my husband transitions to a new life,” Kathleen shared, “We toss around the phrase ‘work family’ in our society a lot, but in this case it is a true statement. Trinity is and always will be my family and I am truly blessed to have the career I do today and to do what I love with the people I love and consider family!”
If you’re an RN with military ties, Trinity is here to help. Our staffing group places a high value on the relationship that a recruiter has with his or her nurse because we understand that a solid support system can make a world of difference to a nurse during their assignment. For military spouses and veterans, this can be especially important because of the unique situation these individuals face. And as a partner of the Military Spouse Employment Program, we regularly work with Military One Source and the Department of Defense to provide jobs to military spouses. At Trinity, whether you’re a staffing professional or travel nurse, you’re considered an integral part of the Trinity team and family. We understand from a first-hand experience that individuals with a military background appreciate support and encouragement, and we are happy to provide it.
