FASTAFF Names Experienced Nurse "Traveler of the Year"

Top travel nurse from FASTAFF, a leading national travel nursing agency, will be featured in the December issue of Healthcare Traveler Magazine.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 5, 2008

FASTAFF Travel Nursing, a national healthcare staffing agency, recognized Anthony Woodward's work ethic, loyalty, adaptability and dedication by naming him as "Traveler of the Year." FASTAFF nominated Mr. Woodward for the honor and he will be featured in Healthcare Traveler Magazine's December 2008 issue.

FASTAFF places hundreds of top-quality travel nurses on assignments across the United States, and Anthony stood out because he rarely turns down an assignment and rarely misses a shift. He's dedicated to the nursing profession and has practiced nursing in a variety of specialties, making him an ideal travel nurse.

Healthcare facilities seek out the FASTAFF Travel Nursing because of nurses like Anthony. He has been a traveler with FASTAFF for six years, and he's worked in some of the most demanding acute care settings. His specialties include Medical/Surgical, Orthopedics, Psychology, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Oncology.

Anthony has also practiced nursing in Nephrology and even Industrial nursing. He discovered his interest in nursing during an early stint as a medic in the Navy but, according to Anthony, Pediatrics is where his current passion lies. He says he loves working with kids.

Anthony works exclusively with FASTAFF Travel Nursing because of his recruiter and FASTAFF's complete compensation package, including top pay and completion and referral bonuses, among other benefits. He's also enjoyed traveling to new cities and hospitals, and honing skills he learned in nursing school but often didn't have a chance to use at the facility where he once was a permanent staff nurse.

"I have learned so much being exposed to new procedures and techniques and having the opportunity to master them…I enjoy the excitement both personally and professionally that travel nursing offers me… and I've been able to put my sons through school too," said Anthony.

Anthony is working to put his youngest son through college and hopes to retire in five to six years. With regular assignments from FASTAFF, he's well on his way to achieving his goals.
