Nusing Staffing Agency

  1. Hello,

    I got a CNA license while I'm on the waiting list. I had a interview with a staffing agency. I wonder if I should sign and have a contract (a legal document) where is stated the company hires me and pay how much per hour.
    I had a bad experience with one home-based facility last month. I worked as a trainee and didn't get paid as promised.
    After it, I am concerned about the legal proof when I'll have a problem with getting paid.
    I think that signing on the legal paper by employer and employee is a normal process. Isn't it?
    Do you have any information or advice or experience?
    Thanks in advance!!

    Signed contracts are common when working for a private duty client. When working for a run of the mill employer, such as a home health agency or a long term care facility, there usually isn't a signed agreement as to hours, pay, etc. However, some employers will provide an employment offer letter that states the position details.

    Have you ever heard about " All-Stat Nursing Services " ?

    No, must be a local or regional agency.
