Working Agency {registry/as needed} in NYC.

  1. Back in the day [a long way back day], working agency was the best way to make money in NYC hospitals and maintain freedom. As it turns out, I am considering again relocating there. I currently work out west in a level III NICU, but a return to NYC is in my future, it appears. I am interested in doing Agency work in Manhattan [NICU]. I am wondering if any nurses out there can help me determine the best agency to apply to and if in fact I can expect sufficient [full time or near it] hours. Are hospital NICUs in NY dependant enough on agency to allow this to be a viable alternative? Is any one agency the one more utilized by active NICUs? What hospitals depend on Agency NICU nurses in Manhattan? any body know?
    Thanks in advance
