What inspired you to become a nurse? You probably love helping people feel their best and enjoy making a difference in the lives of others. Nurses are compassionate, selfless, competent, and tend to have amazing bladder control! We are often overworked and stressed, but stay in this field because it is so rewarding. Sometimes we wonder…did we choose nursing, or did it choose us?! Well, I’ll tell you one area we can exercise some autonomy – our place of employment. Do you apply to jobs and feel like you are missing out on vital opportunities because your resume is floating around in outer space? Are you spending endless amounts of time registering and filling out applications, only to never hear back from anyone? I have been a Registered Nurse for 10 years now, and that frustrating scenario was all too familiar. I wanted to do make this process more efficient for us, and created this site where nurses can filter and choose exactly which kinds of positions they are interested in pursuing.
My goal is to empower nurses and help them find the most ideal position in terms of department, experience, flexibility and salary. Whether it is home care, teaching, inpatient/outpatient, consulting, etc. – NurseWala will streamline your search and provide you with an array of options for your next career opportunity. Additionally, Nursewala users will soon be able to obtain discounts on nursing gear, liability insurance, CPR classes, continuing education courses and more. We will keep you posted on these efforts. I will also have a blog where I post about issues that affect and/or benefit us as nurses. I am open to feedback as well…please email me with any suggestions or concerns you may have.
