Last year, facility supervisors submitted nominations on why their PassportUSA healthcare professional should be 2019 PassportUSA’s Employee of the Month. Their nominations shared the healthcare professionals’ dedication to their roles and our company.

After voting from all of the eligible 2019 PassportUSA Employees of the Month, we are hereby honored to announce that the winner of 2019’s PassportUSA Nurse Employee of the Year contest is Preety!! Congratulations to Preety, as she will enjoy a spotlight on both our Facebook and website! She will also receive the winner’s certificate for the year, bragging rights, and she has chosen an iPad as her gift!


Preety began her journey with Health Carousel back in 2018. She aspires to work hard and keep her trust in our company. Her ability to be patient, compassionate, and her amazing teamwork has helped her win the title as PassportUSA’s 2019 Nurse of the Year!

“Preety is always willing to help out wherever needed. She is very flexible with her schedule and will do whatever she can to adjust her schedule to ensure we give adequate staffing. She always has an upbeat attitude that brings so much joy to the residents and staff. She has volunteered to paint resident fingernails every Tuesday afternoon on her day off.” -Director of Nursing

PassportUSA sees her compassion and so do her patients, managers and peers. She is very positive and everybody notices it regularly. She is flexible with her schedule to meet the needs of the unit. Preety has received a lot of praise and we know that her career is only going to blossom even more over time.

Preety, it is an honor having you as a part of the PassportUSA family. Congratulations again, and to a job well-done!

We asked Preety about her career achievements and this is what she said:

What career accomplishments from the past year are you most proud of? “In fall 2019, I was nominated for the facility “Champion of Care” award by fellow employees. The nomination to represent the facility and to attend the biannual Nebraska Nursing Home Facility Convention was my major accomplishment of 2019.”

What skills have you gained since working with our client so far? “I take each day as a learning process as a ‘greater whole’ result. I follow an adage that pretty much summarizes my learning experience at this facility: ‘To be kind is more important than to be right. Many times, what patients need is not a brilliant mind that speaks but a special heart that listens.”

What/who motivates you to get your job done? “I am fortunate to have my colleagues and patients who motivate me every week. My colleagues appreciate my effort and input and my patients accept me with love and adoration and continue to do so.”

What aspects about your workplace makes your job enjoyable? “I have an ethical and dependable nursing team here. They are respectful and dedicated to provide good care to the patients and to their families.”

What advice would you suggest to other healthcare professionals to succeed in their job here in the U.S.? “I advise others to keep their heads up! Set your heart and eyes on your desired goal. Do not simply dream to succeed. Be prepared because luck happens when preparation meets opportunity! Above all, I believe there are two essential elements: integrity and hard work. These often direct your choices and the course of your life!”

We are extremely proud of Preety’s accomplishments and dedication in 2019 and we look forward to her success in 2020!

Last year, facility supervisors submitted nominations on why their PassportUSA healthcare professional should be 2019 PassportUSA Employee of the Month. Their nominations shared the healthcare professionals’ dedication to their roles and our company.

After voting from all of the eligible 2019 PassportUSA Employees of the Month, we are hereby honored to announce that the winner of 2019’s PassportUSA Allied Employee of the Year contest is Vannetta!! Congratulations to our medical technologist, Vannetta, as she will enjoy a spotlight on both our Facebook and website! She will also receive the winner’s certificate for the year, bragging rights, and she has chosen an iPad as her gift!


Vannetta began her journey with Health Carousel back in 2018. She never gave up on herself and her faith in our company. Her genuine ability to transition smoothly, collaborate with the team, stay positive, and her continued hard work has helped her win the title as the PassportUSA 2019 Allied Employee of the Year!

“Vannetta is such a great medical technologist. She is always timely and a great team player. I’ve been a medical technologist for 45 years and I have rarely seen anyone learn processes as quickly as she does — and this is someone that is not in her home country.

She speaks excellent English and communicates well. She is an awesome team player and literally will work any shift or do any new process that we ask of her. She pitches in and helps out in other areas of the lab without being asked. Often you might have to ask for help, but not with Vannetta. She just steps right in to do anything to help her teammates.” -Laboratory Administrative Director

PassportUSA sees Vannetta’s ambition and so do her patients, managers and peers. She is a go-getter, and everybody notices it regularly. She has received a lot of praise and we know that her career is only going to advance more over time.

Vannetta, it is an honor having you as a part of the PassportUSA family. Congratulations again, and to a job well-done!

We asked Vannetta about her career growth, and this is what she had to say:

What career accomplishments from the past year are you most proud of? “I have been awarded PassportUSA Spotlight of the Month and PassportUSA Allied Employee of the Month. I contribute my success to my amazing group of coworkers and my cohesive work environment!”

What skills have you gained since working with our client so far? “I have advanced my multitasking and problem solving skills. I’ve learned so much more about immunohematology/blood banking. It is something I thought about learning but never had the opportunity to do during my previous job abroad, so being able to use those skills now is great.”

What/who motivates you to get your job done? “My family motivates me to learn new things. I enjoy being receptive to my team’s feedback. When others know that I am available to help, it keeps me interested in my work and drives me to further my own knowledge so I can contribute back to the group and to my patients.”

What aspects about your workplace makes your job enjoyable? “I love that everyone shares the same vision and dedication to the mission. We care about each other as people and we each strive for professional growth. There is a genuine spirit of cooperation and we are always commended for the great work that we do.”

What advice would you suggest to other healthcare professionals to succeed in their job here in the U.S.? “I advise others to always be willing to help. If there is a job that needs to be done and you are qualified to do it and can do it, then you should. Even if it’s not your assigned task, especially if the person assigned is busy, it’s all about working together.”

We are extremely proud of Vannetta’s accomplishments and dedication in 2019 and we look forward to her success in 2020!

What drew you to Health Carousel? “I was looking for a good agency after being abandoned twice by my previous employers. It was the right time when I saw an email from Health Carousel stating that they were recruiting nurses to work and live in the U.S. Due to their commitment of providing better work opportunities, helping me to achieve my U.S. dream into a reality and offering better benefits to their candidates, this led me to apply and commit myself to sign a contract with Health Carousel.”

What do you love most about being a RN? “I love being a nurse because it’s a profession that continuously gives you the chance to help people to get well and touch their lives without expecting anything in return. You learn new things everyday and the opportunity for growth is unlimited. I feel so good when I see improvement in my patients and that gives me inner peace. I have met some of the most interesting people while working as a nurse. My knowledge and skills as a nurse also helps me to take better care of my family’s health.”

What is your favorite American food? “My favorite American food is rib-eye steak with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. The best way to complete my meal is a mouth-watering chocolate lava cake!”

Tell us something unique about you! “Being here in the U.S. gives me an opportunity to travel to different states and so far I have been to 20 states. Whenever there’s time I love to cook for my family and friends so we can hang out at home.”

What’s your favorite quote? “Trust the timing of your life.”
