New to the Agency World
- 0Feb 1, '13 by javawren_23Greeting fellow RN's!!
I've been working in a Birthing Center for about a year now, and would really love to explore my options in the world of agency nursing. The birthing center that I work in does antepartum, labor, delivery, recovery, postpartum, and newborn/high risk nursery, so I have experience in all, but my preference is the postpartum/mom and baby care. I live in Wisconsin, but am open to traveling to other states. Can anyone recommend an agency or offer some tips on how to get started?
Thanks so much!!!

My best suggestion to you is to throw your applications out to a few agencies that have postpartum positions and see which one you find to be the most friendly and accommodating. I have found that L&D jobs are pretty needed in the travel world. Good Luck!

Procare has been great with me as far as customer service but I am realizing that they don't pay as well. I just started working with Allstate nursing and they are great as well. I'm just searching agencies that work and are grounded mainly in SoCal. These were the two I have found so far.Hi Ruth,
I am also in SoCal (Los Angeles) and wanting to explore agency nursing (OR positions). Are there specific agencies that you can recommend? Thanks for any thoughts, I don't know anyone personally who has agency experience.
