From Our Nurses

“I have worked with other travel nursing companies and Select Medical Connections is by far the best. I trust my recruiter to find the contracts that are best suited for me. There is never any pressure to take contracts that I am not interested in and she always manages the book the dates that work best for me. I juggle regular nursing and travel nursing so flexibility is something that I need and she offers that. Awesome locations, 100% transparency and a recruiter that advocates for me  I can’t recommend Select Medical Connections enough!”

“I have been travel nursing with Select Medical Connections for the last 3 years and it was the best career decision I made. The flexibility that comes with calling your own schedule is unparalleled. My recruiter knows my strengths and abilities, has always found me fantastic contracts, and is there for me, even when my travel days fall on holidays or weekends. Travel nursing has allowed me to explore parts of Canada I would not otherwise see, and experience the diversity that this great country has to offer.”

“Enjoying the lakes and rivers during the summer and cross country skiing in the park, sliding and skidooing during the winter while working in a small remote area! I who would never have thought rural nursing that exciting!!!!! Manitoba is the place to be!!! Select has really matched me up with awesome contracts. I have been with them full time for a year now and I just can’t get enough of it. The people I have met while on contract, the nursing opportunities and challenges while on contract as an emergency nurse, has never been so FUN!!! Thanks to my recruiter Kristen who keeps checking in on me to make sure I’m still alive. I don’t know when my adventure is going to stop but one thing is for sure, you gotta try it out!!!!”
