"From the very start, the Health Carousel staff was very accommodating with my concerns and questions. Still today, I admire and appreciate their professionalism. This was the major part that drew me to Health Carousel. My smooth transition as an international healthcare professional applicant to a RN in the USA was all made possible because of them. Furthermore, Health Carousel provides a steady platform for eligible candidates to excel and reach above and beyond."What do you like most about working with our client? "I work as a charge nurse. The Director of Nursing (DON), my colleagues, and auxiliary staff were very welcoming from the beginning. They all offered and provided me a helping hand to adjust and start my new life in Nebraska. I am very comfortable working here and further wish to be of any help to the facility besides being a nurse. Everyday experience is rewarding. In addition, my facility recognizes and appreciates the personal efforts that I contribute as a nurse. That simple acknowledgement makes a lot of difference. It provides positivism to move ahead with grand ideas and hope. I am thankful to Health Carousel for this assignment."What do you like to do outside of work? "I love outdoor activities, travelling, and tasting a variety of cuisines. On my days off, I try my best to check out new places and learn baking from my colleagues. They love teaching me and I look forward to learning from them. Every morning I go out for group workout classes with my friend from work Jodi. She is an assistant administrator. Recently, I collaborated with the activity director at the facility and started, "Pretty Nails with Preety" manicure program every Tuesday. I give residents manicures and back rubs. This also give me opportunity to bond with them during my off hours."What is your favorite American food?�"I have many. But I do love a homemade juicy grilled burger with lettuce, tomatoes, and chipotle sauce."What do you love most about being a RN?�"It is a rewarding experience. When my residents find out that I am their nurse for the day they get excited. This further adds joy to my profession. I always had interest to work with seniors and being brought up in an extended family myself, I have great adoration for them and respect their feelings. At the end of the day, the feeling that I was of help to someone is a good feeling."Have you received awards from your facility? "A CARE card is a way of acknowledging and appreciating employees for exceeding expectations and standards of care. It is based in four criteria Communication, Attitude, Responsiveness, and Engagement. I have received seven CARE cards from the DON, colleagues, and administrators."Tell us something unique about you! "I speak three languages: Nepali (I am from Nepal), Hindi (dialect in India- especially in Northern India) and English. I am a tea cup collector! I enjoy tea parties."What is your favorite quote?
