    147 Walking Away From Burnout into Career Autonomy with Sarah Gaines, MSN, RNC-OB

    Ever had to suck it up in a tough burnout situation? Sarah Gaines talks about how she walked away from a corrosive, unsupportive environment that denied her the time she needed to grieve after her father passed away and into the ‘unknown’ of travel nursing. Travel nursing flipped Sarah’s life upside down in the best way possible. She shares big misconceptions about the uncertainties of travel nursing, how to negotiate (tips that can be applied to just about any job), and how to maximize a traveling assignment to help you advance in your career.

    Sarah Gaines, MSN, RNC-OB (also known as the Six Figure Travel Nurse®) is a labor and delivery nurse, mentor, educator and entrepreneur. Passionate about travel nursing (20 contracts and counting!), she created the Six Figure Travel Nurse Course® to educate and empower nurses ready to take control of their career so that they can gain the freedom, autonomy and pay they deserve.

    To learn more about how the Travel Nurse Course can help accelerate your career with the tools, resources and supportive community every nurse needs to jump into travel nursing with clarity and confidence, visit www.sarahgaines.com
