Hear from Sarah:


"HScreenshot 2022-07-01 093730i, everyone! I'm Sarah Gaines RN. I desperately needed a mentor with a blueprint to guide me so that I could stop struggling and start thriving in the travel nursing industry - but that didn't exist. So after 20+ contracts under my belt and several years traveling to the top hospitals all across the U.S., I stepped up and  created it."

The Debt Free Nurse

Hear from Allie


"I'm Allie, The "DebtFreeNurse." I paid off 46K of student loan debt in 18 months while saving 10K all without sacrificing things I loved! I became debt free in 2019 and I've been teaching nurses about money since 2018! I specialize in guilt-free money management, teaching nurses their core values and how to change their mindset and relationship around money! My mission is to help nurses own the hell out of their finances so they can say YES to things they love and no to the things they don't! I'm also passionate about pay transparency and destigmatizing talking about money!"
