    Welcome to the forums!!!
    I don't know how long it takes to like agency since I've never done it personally.

    Welcome...the "rule-of-thumb"...if you will...is usually try to stick anything out for at least a year. I did a very short stent (3 months) in agency many years ago...and did not like it...I have to have the stability that a real employer provides...working the same area, same co-workers, etc. I did not like working at multiple hospitals...it was too uncomfortable for me.

    I was told by my senior year instructor to give a job 6 months before moving on....best advice I ever got---I stayed at my 1st job 2 years and now in my second job I am almost on my 14th year! Give it time!
