Why a Butterfly?
Like butterflies, our providers go through a process of growth, change, and development during each assignment.
Freedom, travel and patience are some of the connotations associated with the butterfly. Here are TEN butterfly facts which ALL contributed to making this beautiful insect the perfect inspiration logo for our temporary healthcare professionals:
- Butterflies range in size from a tiny 1/8 inch to a huge (almost) 12 inches. Our healthcare providers come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and backgrounds – and we love and appreciate them all!
- When the butterfly first emerges, its wings are wet and crinkled, but after about an hour, they are straight, dry, and strong enough for the butterfly to flutter away. When our future providers graduate with their nursing, therapy, or other healthcare-related degree/certification they are typically a little green with limited experience. After one-to-two years of hands-on experience and accolades from their managers, they are strong enough to fly away to their first assignment.
- Butterflies can see red, yellow, and green. Our providers are equipped with superior critical thinking and interpersonal communication skills. They use these talents daily when identifying and assessing a patient’s condition (red), prioritizing interventions in response to rational assessments (yellow), and executing professional action (green).
- Scientists estimate that there are between 15,000 and 20,000 different species of butterflies. Our providers are ALL unique with different needs and wants. It is our recruiters’ job to uncover the desires and talents of each provider and find an assignment compatible with each one’s skills, competencies, and needs.
- Butterflies are helpful in the way they flit from flower to flower and help pollinate plants along the way. Our temporary providers are helpful in the way they can work in different facilities yet continue to bring their best attributes to each new assignment or facility.
- Monarch butterflies journey from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, a distance of about 2,000 miles, and return to the north again in the spring. Our travel providers often migrate to warm spots in the winter and toward cooler temps in the summer. With so many client facilities around the country to choose from, they are free to do just that!
- Glider pilots have reported seeing migrating Monarchs flying at an altitude of 11,000 feet – higher than some clouds! Our healthcare providers are always flying high (well, most of the time!) because they have chosen a career option full of adventure and freedom!
- Most butterflies feed on nectar from flowers. Providers are able to capitalize on each assignment’s best resources since they are constantly exchanging ideas and sharing knowledge with peers who come from a variety of experiences and backgrounds.
- The fastest butterflies are the skippers, which can fly at 37 miles per hour, but most butterflies travel at 5 to 12 miles per hour. Some of our providers enjoy “fluttering” from facility to facility; others like to “cocoon” and continue to work at the same facility for multiple assignments.
- Butterflies are spectacular! Like butterflies, our providers go through a process of growth, change and development during every new assignment they take. Like a butterfly, they are spectacular!
