“It’s the best thing I ever did in my life.”
Meet Steve Stang! He’s an EP Nurse from Omaha, Nebraska.
RTG Medical recently got to interview him about his inspirational travel journey!
Last year, Steve celebrated 32 years working at his home hospital. After building a strong foundation of critical care experience, he decided to take a leap of faith and become a travel nurse.
“I wanted to focus on myself.”
And he did just that.
In December of 2019, Steve landed in Atlanta for his first assignment.
“It was amazing,” he said, “I was the new guy for the first time — the new kid on the block.”
He said it was fun to prove himself and learn new approaches to procedures. He said loved it so much, he accepted a second assignment at the same facility.
During his two contracts in Atlanta, Steve found a passion for the outdoors and photography.
When he wasn’t working, he was hiking…
Snapping photos of everything that caught his eye…
And eating well.
With his new found lifestyle, he dropped more than 100 pounds!
“It turned my world around,” he said, “[traveling] was a great vehicle [for me] to focus on myself.”
Steve was so motivating that one of his coworkers in Atlanta followed suit and lost 75 pounds, too!
So what’s next?
After completing his first two contracts, Steve is back home in Nebraska woodworking in his garage…
spending time with family…
and gearing up for his third assignment with RTG!
His advice to future travelers?
“It’s definitely worth the risk, and I’m all for it,” he said, “Everything you want is on the other side of fear. Don’t be afraid! It was the biggest blessing in my life.”
