    None of us will be able to help you without more specific information, such as:
    1. RN or LPN
    2. Specialty or specialties, or areas that you can work
    3. City or state that you would like

    Agencies vary by state and depending on where they have orders from, so first you need to decide location before you even think of anything else.......
    We will be more than happy to answer questions but are unable to without any specifics offered.

    Good luck.......................

    ...from a member here via private message. I am a RN, as it says under my screen name. My specialty is Med/Surg more than anything else. I live in NY. If I travel, it will be locally first. But I am looking into this for the future possibility. Nothing certain now. Thanks.

    Good luck to you...........................just be aware that most travel companies have areas that they are more prevalent in, get more orders for, whether med-surg, OR, ER, etc. So please just be careful because someone sent you some links. It is like setting someone up with a blind date, you want to know as much as possible before you think that they will possibly be a good match. I say this from 25 years of working agency, as well as owning one. Every agency has its good points and can have some bad.............

    You had asked for info and I am trying to be as honest as possible with you.

    I do appreciate honesty. And I am reading some of the posts here and there on both the Agency and Travel board to get some info. I can see it can be nice or a nightmare. I know research has to be done and questions have to be asked. I already see a lot has to be put into writing.
