About the Presenter: 

Brandy Pinkerton ( -Are you considering taking your nursing career to the next level but don’t know how to take that first step? Life is too short to be burnt out, underpaid, and stagnant. Travel nursing allows you the flexibility and freedom to pursue your passion for nursing while traveling, gaining knowledge, and having epic adventures. You get to explore with a purpose! I’m Brandy, your fellow travel nurse friend and mentor. I have over 18 years of varied nursing experience, including neonatal and pediatric ICU, critical care float pool, flight nursing, and travel nursing. Since pursuing a career as a travel nurse, I’ve had adventures in Florida, Colorado, Nevada, South Carolina, Texas, and Montana. I’m an avid traveler, hiker, and outdoor enthusiast. Why did I decide to become a travel nurse? Well, I was burned out in my staff job and needed to renew my passion for nursing. After finding a great company and a trustworthy recruiter, I embarked on my first assignment solo with my two doggies in tow and never looked back! Becoming a travel nurse was the best decision I could have made for myself! While I’m grateful I made the decision to become a travel nurse, I also know that there are a lot of logistics involved in getting started. That’s why I’m here! When you feel overwhelmed, I’m here to be your travel nurse mentor – to team up with you, hold your hand, and give you the confidence you need for a successful journey. Instead of letting you learn the hard way, I’ll tell you all there is to know about travel nursing, so that you can feel prepared to take the leap into this exciting, rewarding profession! I’m all about working smarter, not harder, and I’m happy to mentor my future travel nurse community.
