    Hi
    Last year when I first started the long form filling to live and work in Florida I contacted O`Gradt peyton spoke to a man regarding getting me out there I was dissapointed at his reply I qualified 8 yrs ago since then have worked on acute medical, orthopaedics, ICU/HDU and am presently working on a Ear Nose and Throat unit, his advice was that I leave my present job and go back to an acute area :angryfire He never asked what do I do on a daily basis we deal with very acute pts including full neck disections larengectomys and always have at least 2-3 trachys on the ward we also are an admissions unit for all ENT emergencys stabbings, throat slashings anaphylaxis etc as well as all the other ENT procedures tonsils epistaxis foreign bodies etc. So I didn`t feel it apprpiate to leave my present job.
    but since then I get almost daily leters phone calls regarding going to one of their seminars on working in the US needless to say I have had little contact with OGP since, but I would like to hear from nurses who went to the US with them and also like yourself has anyone else had contact with them.

    PS by the way went to another company US british nurses who welcomed me with open arms and have been very helpful :hatparty:

    i am a rn working in california with ogp as it was basically the only way we could figure to get a green card. ogp have from the word go been unsupportive and after a recent car accident i discovered just how bad they were. no-one rang to ask how i was or offer us advice or help. we were faced with huge ER bills and the insurance they provide is useless. when i asked them if they had some sort of policy in place to help nurses and their families in these kinds of situations they said no. i would advise you to look at other nurse agencies before considering ogp as they seem to abandon families once here. as long as you are making them money then that is what counts. i hope you get some positive feedback from others but this is my tale of warning.

    I would definitely stay away from OGP. I have seen too many horror stories, especially from nurses from the UK about them. They didn't deliver on what they promise and that is a major "no-no" in my book.

    Any suggestion for a good agency other then OGP ??
    Like example another good agency's Website etc ?? Due to tha fact thatit's my first time and of course first attempt it's very difficult for me to locate other agencies in the world . So far i only heard of OGP . Any other Agency around out there since most had bad experience with OGP

    First, why do you even need an agency? It definitely doesn't make anything quicker, actually longer with most of them................
