She started with the company 12 years ago as a part-timer, worked her way up to branch manager and then five years ago opened the business here in Lubbock. She loves her job because it is not only fun (bonus), but rewarding every single day. Molly said she loves being a part of the Ambassadors because she enjoys meeting new people and welcoming businesses to the Chamber.

“I love that we promote the Chamber and the community through the Ambassador program,” Molly said. “But even more I love the friendships that I have built. These volunteers have the biggest hearts!”

Molly currently serves as an Ambassador team captain and most recently her Ambassador team has been collecting school back packs to donate to CASA. Molly also stays busy serving on the Hub City BBQ Committee, hosting Business After Hours, helping with Mega Marketing, volunteering for Woodystock and at the Southwest Regional Medical Facility for a disaster drill.

Types of Nurses Medical Staffing Agencies Recruit

Medical Staffing Agencies Recruit Many Types of Nurses

Medical Staffing Agencies Recruit Many Types of Nurses

The nursing profession has several different types of nurses, and many if not all types, are needed by medical staffing agencies to fill thousands of positions across the country and the world.

Consider where you would like to work and that will determine what level of education or certification you will need as well as the classification. For example, if you are interested in working with children, then a pediatric nurse may fit for you. Medical staffing agencies need pediatric nurses not only in physician offices, but also hospitals.

Other opportunities for nurses include clinics – both public and private, hospices, intensive care, emergency rooms, private and public schools, government agencies and other corporations. Within these locations, female and male nurses can work in specialty professions such as Allergy and Immunology, Anesthesiology, Dermatology, which may include plastic and cosmetic surgery and some spas, internal medicine, family medicine, radiology, psychiatry, and more.

After you have researched the different specialties, you’ll need to know what type of education or certification is required. There are several certifications nurses can obtain throughout their careers, and one can always add a certification to make oneself more qualified to work in other areas. There are three roads to become a nurse: 1) earn a diploma from an accredited nursing program or hospital, 2) an associate’s degree (ADN), or 3) a bachelor’s degree (BSN). Additional certificates are available too; however, the most important step in becoming a nurse is passing the National Council Licensure Examination for Register Nurses (NCLEX-RN) or Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN).

Whether you want to work as a Registered nurse (RN), who has completed at least a 2 year degree in nursing, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or an Advanced Practice Registered nurse (APRN), which are those who have completed the most education, medical staffing agencies need nurses to fill many types of positions throughout the States and even the world.
