Travel Nurse Q&A: Amber Megens

Travel Nurse Q&A: Amber Megens


This month we’re getting to know an amazing nurse that shines in all of her assignments: Amber Megens! She is known for her strong work ethic and passion for patient care. She was even given the Compassionate Care Award at a hospital for her hard work and indispensability. Her recruiter couldn’t help but gush about her:

“Amber is the real deal! Her flexibility and trust really allows me to ensure she always has that next assignment locked in. It’s more than a partnership, it’s a friendship. She is truly passionate about what she does and it shows in her patient care. This last year she has been able to really shine when taking on the Charge Nurse role and I’m happy to be a part of her success!”

Get To Know Amber

Why or how did you get into nursing? 

I always knew I would become a nurse. My grandmother was one and my grandfather is one as well. I knew at the age of 6 I would be a nurse one day. 

What’s your favorite thing about your job?

 I love the interaction with all types of people from all walks of life. I can talk to anyone about anything and it will not phase me. 

Do you have any advice for nurses that want to start traveling? 

I say DO IT! Life is too short to sit and wonder about what could have been. Just get out there and experience life. You do not have to be overly involved with the hospital you go to, but do take the time to experience the town or city you are traveling to. 

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? 

I would love to have super strength. Being a woman I already have a certain degree of it but, being really strong with a slim waist and thick hips would make me unstoppable! 

What are some of your hobbies?

Doing anything that allows me to be creative. I love art, building things, and taking photos. I love being able to express my love of the nice things in the world by creating something that others can love too. 

Thank you for being a part of the Advanced Fam! We appreciate you!
