Anyone work for supplemental as a travel nurse?

  1. 0
    So I received a call from a recruiter at supplemental...as a travel nurse but the first assignment will be in my home state. Anyone work for them ? What happens when the assignment ends and there is nothing else available? What is the pay like?

    I'm currently working full time and don't know if I should take it.

    Personally when I finished my 1 year training as an RN I left to do travel. I worked for Intellistaff, and after working 6 yrs at johns hopkins on staff. I started travel nursing again and started with ACES. They pay round trip air fare, housing, car voucher. They mostly use the Alta Bates Summit Hospital in Oakland CA because they were nurses there and then started their own company. So for me ACES has the best benefit at the time in 2006. and paid for everything upfront. If you want to take a leave from your job and see if you would like travel nursing then do so. But you can't go around telling everyone on your job what your plans are, because some people are very jealous. I met nurses who took time off over the summer months to get down payment for a house. I don't know if she continued to travel b/c she did have a small child. Right now even the travel nurse business is in decline even here in CA. But travel jobs are a bit more plentiful here in CA than in other parts of the country b/c of the 5/1 ratio on a med/surg/ floor. But I wish you the best.

    Have you signed up with agencies in your area? I always had a staff position and used agency at other hospitals (I certainly wanted extra money and a variation in surroundings - I think the trap of "overkill" exists if you do all your nursing at one facility). Additionally, as an agency nurse you can look around and see what the other hospitals look like without being bombarded by orientation or new staff constraints....when I got a job offer at a hospital I had worked as agency, I knew if I would or could work there as staff....best of luck!!
