I have read a few things mentioning working for the "registry." What is this exactly?

Our place first called it the "float pool" and later the "roster", but no benefits and no seniority made me rethink it really fast.
The salary was the same as other RNs , but you did get to pick your hours. You hawever could NOT pick your assignments, and if you deferred more than 2 in an 8 week period you were "outta there!"
There may also be some older private duty agencies calling themselves Nurses Registry. I seem to remember that from a long time ago.
Hmmmm. OK I really CAN spell, but I really CAN'T type
hawever=however. Oh yes the 'e' is sticking on my keyboard. It could be the Cheerios or maybe the Mountain Dew, ya think?
