Kenita’s recruiter Miranda has this to say about Kenita. “In October, Kenita celebrated her year anniversary with Host! Professionally, she is an extremely talented critical care nurse who enjoys a challenge. High acuity cardiac patients don’t scare this girl! Personally, Kenita loves adventure. She has visited CO, AR, and WA and plans to make her way to California next! Her flexibility and collaboration make her an exceptional nurse to work with. When there is a problem, Kenita helps resolve it. Thanks Kenita for all you do!”
Q: If you could have one super power what would it be and why?
A: I would have to say flying! Those long cross country drives are exhausting. Although I might fly slowly sometimes to enjoy the scenery ?
Q: What has been your favorite experience since you have been traveling?
A: My favorite experience since starting traveling has been learning how diverse each unit can be. Sure, they’re all ICU’s, but every unit is SOOO different and it’s enlightening to see the different unit cultures and practices. I have even taken some of these practices and tips along with me.
Q: What has been one of your favorite places/spots you have visited while on assignment?
A: Hiking Mt. Ranier in Washington state was the most beautiful, incredible, and breath taking experiences of my life. This is a MUST DO if you take an assignment in Washington.
Q: What made you want to try travel nursing?
A: I grew up in Northwest Arkansas, went to college in Northwest Arkansas, and obtained my first nursing job in Northwest Arkansas. I love Fayetteville, but I wanted to see more while I had the chance. I have always had an adventurous spirit, and knew that travel nursing was calling my name.
Q: What was one thing you were scared of before your first assignment and how did you combat that?
A: I was really nervous that nurses in my assigned unit wouldn’t be helpful/receptive to a traveler. To combat this, I just made it very clear that I was there to help the unit! However, I actually never ran into this problem. Most units are very glad to have some back up come in.
Q: What is your guilty pleasure after a long day at work?
A: Red wine and Forensic Files!
Q: What is one word that sums up your recruiter, Miranda?
