  1. I am looking for agency work in Austin, TX. Has anyone heard anything good, bad, indifferent? I am biding my time now for the new children's hospital to open in the spring or summer of next year....any advice would be appreciated!

    I saw this old post & was wondering if you found a good agency in Austin? If so, who?

    Thanks!

    i am working in austin now as staff in the ED. i interviewed with Brackenridge Hospital downtown and they were niiice, but the money wasn't there and the stress was bad for the nurses. I interviewed with St. David's in South Austin where I liked the people and the philosophy. I have been here for a few weeks and still like the people! so far so good. i do know that seton uses an agency called Premier Staffing where they work only for Seton. There is another agency called ALL About Staffing that works around Austin as well. If you happen to be looking for a staff position, I really recommend St. David's. I like it very much! If you care to know more, let me know!

    Hate to disagree with you, Blue, but I did an OR travel assignment at St. Davids (or as we called it, the 7th Ring of Hell) a few years ago, and would be hard pressed to recall anywhere where the travelers were as badly treated as there. Was put on call my 1st weekend there,Easter weekend, and wasn't told about it until the following week. Really bad thing about it , was they did hearts there, and I don't! We did 3 and 4 times the number of cases as the regular staff, and the person really running the place was some pencil-pushing clerk! The rest of the departments had a good reputation, though.
