Quit my job for agency.

  1. Hello. I am a NY'er that just quit her job for agency work. I had an assignment with a start date -and it fell through. (Long story) However, now I am soon to be jobless! I have to laugh! I could stay where I am, and renig on my resignation, but I am determined to travel.

    Originally, I wanted to go to Orlando where I have friends and family. Only now it seems as if this is a very desireable place at this time of year, and all contracts have been snatched up. That and I suppose I am not 'first choice' because I have only a year of M/S.

    So I ask you all, where should I go ...by myself, for the holidays? I don't really care so much where I go, only that I am in a traveler friendly environment for my very first assignment. Any recommendations from any experienced travelers would be wonderful. I'm open to all. ND, SD, Boise, NM...

    Did you try more than one agency? Look in the last few pages of your nursing magazines. Call the local ones around your current location, sometimes they are looking for a nurse to "travel" with a sick family member. Good Luck Enjoy your holiday

    I know it's past Christmas but what you should do is work local agency without a contract and stay with family or friends. Higher pay and also max flexibility. If you think you want to contract, do it. One thing that you must know is that Fl. Hospitals and ORMC require you to float to multiple facilities. If you don't have a contract, you can pick and choose where you want to go and that makes the best sense to me.
