Local agencies in San Bernardino area...

  1. Hey all,

    If anyone could give me a couple of suggestions/opinions on local agencies in the San Bernardino, CA area. I'm looking for per diem or contract work in ICU. Looking for top pay, agency with good reputation. I've googled and found so many. Rns (think that's the way you spell it) stands out b/c someone personally recommended them. I firmly believe word of mouth is the best reference. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks:wink2:

    Good Luck

    I'd say try Maxim - I've worked for them since the beginning of the year and they've been great! I'll admit I'd heard some bad things before I met them, but you hear bad things about everyone - unfortunatly I know that most of the bad stuff about the other agencies in the area is true . They have been fantastic though - very reliable, pay is always correct and they take excellent care of me and my friends. Their office in Riverside covers the San Bernardino area - i know you'll love them!

    Those are actually two of the hospitals that I've been thinking of working at. I have spoken with Agostini (have you heard of this agency?) and they have available contracts w/ these hospitals. They are very close to where I will be living. What unit do you work on? Do you know anyone who has worked these hospitals' ICU's. I am getting excited about moving out here. Will be coming from Louisiana with my new husband in two months. He'll be doing his CRNA clinicals at LomaLinda Univ Med Ctr and Arrowhead. Thanks for the info!
