Meet Kim! She’s an LPN from Tennessee whose life has changed in every way — by, you guessed it — one step at a time.
Let’s learn how she did it!
Step 1: Learn About Travel Nursing
Kim first worked in a pediatric clinic where she learned a lot! But, she said she felt like she could learn more. So, she started working in a family clinic. She loved it — but same story. With another routine down cold, she craved a constant learning environment!
That’s when travel nursing popped in her head. Before she knew it, a RTG Medical post appeared on her Facebook feed.
“I was at the point that my son graduated high school… I could do it!”
Kim said she initially wanted to go to Hawaii but opted out.
“I would never get back home,” she laughed.
It wasn’t until she was offered a travel assignment in Nebraska from RTG that she finally decided to take… the next step!
Step 2: Become a Travel Nurse
“I loved it.”
Kim had never worked 12 house before, but she said “it started to have positive effects on her.”
“Instead of eating, I started walking everywhere I went.”
Step 3: Become Healthier
She walked to work (which was a mile and a half) and would walk constantly. Then, she would take her patients in wheelchairs outside and walk up and down the road. She pushed up to five people a day, going on walks, and losing weight.
“It added up!”
It was a snowball effect, and before she knew it, Kim had dropped 75 pounds!
Step 4: Find Love
A month later, she answered a personal ad on a whim.
“I knew it was something special,” she said.
Kim said her new relationship was just another reason to continue on her weight loss journey.
“I have a boyfriend… and now I’m engaged!”
Step 4: Find New Roads
Because of the transformative journey while traveling, she’s going back to school! She found a program in Arkansas, and Kim is planning to become an RN.
“I have learned so much about travel nursing. It has been the best thing ever! RTG Medical is definitely the best travel agency to be with.”
