Rick Hanson Travel Nurse
Responsible and devoted nurse working in a substance abuse rehabilitation center. I am hard working and extremely helpful, always ready to advocate the patient and their families when it comes to care and treatment. I have never compromised on the patient's health no matter which department of health I work for. I always try to lend a helping hand to patients and ensure that their families do not feel stressed either. I wish to serve humanity in the best way possible.
