The emails she’s received in the past week from her temporary employer, a traveling nurse agency, are grim. She’ll be working at several metro hospitals. 

The agency has not sugarcoated what is ahead. 

“The facilities are understaffed, there is an overwhelming amount of sick people, and there are a lot of people that are dying each day,” read an email that Bunn received this week. “This job requires your flexibility and you must be a problem solver at all times. Even though you know this is tough, this will be initially shocking for most and be really hard physically and emotionally. Prepare for that.”
