We have a great team of IntelyPros across the US, and we enjoy highlighting the incredible work that they do.

Choosing Jenelle Nachtrab, a registered nurse from Massachusetts, for our next spotlight was a no-brainer.

Jenelle has demonstrated to us that she is not only a great IntelyPro because she works hard and shows up to shifts on time – she’s also an incredibly compassionate nurse. A few weeks ago, one of the supervisors at a facility we work with gave us a call just to tell us how impressed they were with the care and compassion Jenelle shows to her patients. We enjoyed getting to know her, and we think you will, too!

Thanks for agreeing to participate in our IntelyPro Spotlight series, Jenelle! To start, can you tell us what made you decide to become a Registered Nurse?

I’ve always wanted to be a nurse – it’s really all I’ve ever wanted to do. My mother and both of my grandmothers were nurses as well, so growing up with all of them being nurses had a tremendous influence on me.

That’s great! What do you love most about being a nurse?

I enjoy connecting with new people and helping them heal. I have a special affinity for geriatric patients in particular – they always have a story to tell, and they’re more than happy to share their wisdom with you.

How long have you been a nurse?

10 years.

What do you enjoy most about working at IntelyCare?

The freedom – I like that I can pick up shifts when I want and choose where I want to work. If I don’t want to work weekends, I don’t have to.
Part of what was difficult being a full-time staff member somewhere was having to work a lot of holidays and weekends. I transitioned away from my full-time job in January, and that’s when I started working for IntelyCare.

IntelyCare has also allowed me to travel – I make my own schedule, so I can travel to new places without having to worry about coverage.

We love to hear that. What advice would you give to someone just starting out as a nurse?

I have been able to train a lot of new grads, and they’re always so nervous starting out. It’s important to not let a hard shift get to you – thick skin just comes with time.
I also think it’s so important, for new nurses and experienced nurses alike, to not be afraid to ask questions. I still ask questions all the time – even after ten years, I’m always learning, too. At the end of the day, if you don’t ask questions, you leave room for error.

That’s fantastic advice! Last question: what do you like to do when you’re not working?

My husband and I really enjoy skiing – this past year we were able to travel to ski in Canada, and we also hit up mountains in Utah, Vermont, and New Hampshire!
