My husband and I are looking into taking a travel assignment in the SF Bay area and wondering what are the pay rates for travelers out there vs. taking a local per diem assignment. I'm an ER RN with 9 years experience. Any advice from hospitals, housing (including camp sites; may be traveling with a motorhome), agencies, sites to see, people to meet, and places to eat. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, islandbsn.
