What’s the biggest misconception people have about your job?
IT’S NOT GREYS ANATOMY!

Hospital size and LOCATION.
Triage has been 100% honest with me!
Who is your recruiter and what do you like most about him/her?
I spoke with hundreds of recruiters before I found Amber Phillips. She was always willing to answer any question I had any time… day or night. I never felt with her that I was being fed any kind of “line” to get me to sign with her. NO BS! Now…not only is she my recruiter, she is a dear friend!!!!
