Axis Unfiltered – Episode 101 – Andrew Craig, RN


Welcome to Episode 101 of Axis Unfiltered!

For our first episode, we’re lucky enough to sit down with Andrew Craig to get his thoughts on the industry.

Andrew is a Rock Star nurse and Founder of Traveler Talk, one of the fastest growing sites dedicated to the healthcare traveler community. With over 14k members strong (and growing by the day), Traveler Talk separates itself by providing a respectful, educational and collaborative forum for all in the industry, including travelers, recruiters and anyone interested in pursing a career as a healthcare traveler. It’s unique tone and positive vibe are welcomed and only push us all forward as an industry.

Plus, he’s a great dude who shares my good looks, so he has that going for him… which is nice. ;)

We wanted to reach out to Andrew because he has a wealth of knowledge and he is a leading voice in our industry; most impressively, he’s more than willing to share his experiences with all.

We couldn’t give him or Traveler Talk a higher recommendation. So grab a coffee or a glass of wine, sit back, and enjoy!
