Featured Nurse

Marc Brinsley RN, CCRN

Flying Nurses International would like to welcome Marc Brinsley, CCRN, to our flight nurse staff. Marc is an army man, retired after 24 years of service to the brave men and women who fight for the United States. He joined the army in 1994 and became a combat medic. For 12 years he served as a medic and went to school to obtain his RN degree. The final two years of his schooling were at Hampton University in Virginia where he graduated with his RN in 2006. He was deployed to Iraq in 2007 through 2009, and worked at Baghdad Emergency during the 2008 military surge. During that time, he also was a Rotary Wing Flight Nurse and he flew critically injured patients to Ballad Air Force base for further treatment. He gained his CCRN through the Army and then became an ICU nurse at Fort Sam Houston, Brook Army Trauma Center, which treated the most traumatic injuries in the whole south of Texas, and also for wounded soldiers coming home for treatment. He was then deployed to Afghanistan as the head nurse for a forward surgical team. After his deployment was over, he reported to Fort Carson in Colorado Springs where he worked at Evans Army Community Hospital as the Nurse Manager of a 10-bed ICU. Mark also spent time in Hawaii as a Patient Care Coordinator for the entire Pacific Region, where he was responsible for the travel of military and contractor personnel as they were returning home or going to further treatment. He was posted to Qatar and performed the same type of work for all patient movement in the Middle East. His most recent posting was as head nurse at the US Army Burn Center in San Antonio.

Marc and his family now reside in Henderson, Nevada, where he is involved with HealthTrust as a nurse in the ICU. He and his wife, Melissa, have four children ranging in age from 21 to 6, and a wonderful grandchild, age 6 months. His sons are extremely involved in their sports, one is a baseball player and the other is all about football, and his youngest daughter has declared she will be a swimmer. When Mark is not working at HealthTrust, flying for Flying Nurses, or spending time watching his children hone their athletic skills, he is an avid golfer, a do-it-yourself home improvement aficionado, and a crafter of fine furniture. If he needs relaxation, he turns on his 80’s country music and gets out his tools!

Marc finds flying with patients to be relaxing, too, even given the stress that can come with difficult cases. He loves to travel, and getting the client to their destination safely and comfortably is a big motivator for him. The one-on-one attention he can give to each client is one of the biggest rewards of the job. We are so glad to have Marc flying with us. His knowledge, expertise, and calm-inducing personality are a welcome addition to our wonderful flight staff.
