We had the good fortune of connecting with Sarah Gaines, MSN, RNC-OB and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sarah, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind the success of the Six Figure Travel Nurse® is the powerful community of nurses that is constantly growing, evolving and changing the nursing industry as a whole. Many nurses assume travel nursing is about making more money but being a Six Figure Travel Nurse is about gaining the one thing that’s more valuable than money which is FREEDOM. Gaining the freedom to work wherever you want and vacation as long as you choose has proven to be a key component to improving nurse burn-out while also giving nurses the autonomy to build the life they deserve. The pandemic has taken a huge toll on most nurses and the Six Figure Travel Nurse community provides a supportive group of like-minded nurses who uplift, empower and motivate one another to reach their highest potential. So naturally, the Six Figure Travel Nurse community grew (and continues to grow) exponentially.
What should our readers know about your business?
The Six Figure Travel Nurse Course is an online course and community for registered nurses who want to take control of their career and leverage travel nursing to gain the freedom and pay they deserve. Creating the Six Figure Travel Nurse Course wasn’t easy but it was what was necessary for any nurse feeling overworked, underpaid and underappreciated. As the founder and CEO of The Six Figure Travel Nurse Course, it is my goal to educate and empower registered nurses to jump into travel nursing with confidence so that you can earn the compensation they deserve and gain the freedom they’re always wanted WITHOUT wasting time searching for answers and making costly mistakes along the way. Unfortunately, I was forced to learn many things the hard way throughout my career as a travel nurse but I’m proud to say that I’ve used that negative experience to empower thousands of other nurses to reach their career goals and go for what they deserve.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
MY favorite places to take visitors are the Breakfast Klub and Turkey Leg Hut because those just never get old! Trez Art and Wine Bar is a hidden gem with good food, good vibes and great people. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
