MTV reality series Scrubbing In. This reality series about Travel Nurses will be airing October 24th on MTV.
MTV describes the series stating that it “follows a group of travel nurses assigned to work at an Orange County, CA hospital for 12 weeks. Relocating from across the country, these nurses have left their hometowns and lives behind for short-term hospital contracts, with the added benefit of exploring a new city. For Tyrice, Chris and Fernando this isn’t their first tour and they’re considered experts of the program. For first-timers Chelsey, Michelle, Crystal, Nikki and Heather, this is a new journey they’re embarking on together, looking for a change from their nursing jobs in Pittsburgh, PA. Also joining the team of newbies is Adrian who hails from San Diego, CA.”
The big question on the minds of travel nurses everywhere…. Who is the company behind the show?
Aya Healthcare announced today that they are the staffing agency that has employed these 9 nurses. In thier press release Aya States that these “travel nurses represent a new generation of nurses who have recently entered the workforce. They are highly trained and deeply passionate about nursing.”
For those that may remember, Aya (then Access Nurses) was also the company behind the mini-series of docu-drama’s on Youtube named ’13 Weeks’. The nurses portrayed in this series not only had some great experiences but also showed the viewers the serious side of nursing. Amidst all of the negativity, I have hope that Aya’s involvement with MTV will promote this same aspect in the “Scrubbing In” series.
The Gypsy Nurse will be interviewing several of these nurses in an continued upcoming series of articles about the show. We have upcoming interviews on Chelsea, Fernando and Tyrice (pictured to the left) who, having grown up in a low-income neighborhood, knew she wanted to dedicate her life to helping others.
Would you like to meet Aya Healthcare? They are one of the Sponsors for the upcoming Gypsy Nurse Las Vegas Events as well as the upcoming Travelers Conference. If you are planning to attend, make sure to stop by their booth at the conference or say hello at the Welcome Reception.
