    I traveled for many years with six difference agencies, and I usually made in the mid thirties per hr. Where the heck do you get $60. something an hour?

    Really desirable locations (Hawaii, for example) tend to pay really low- as in the 20s per hr.
    California has a lot of high paying options. As do many other states. I haven't been traveling for long, but I've always made 50-60.

    I'm moving to Denver in a couple months and I am getting a 5k sign on bonus plus a 5k moving relocation bonus. And a 5k bonus at the end of my second year. So they are out there.

    I did take a dollar paycut to move out there though. Which I had to fight for. Their offer was a three dollar paycut.

    I've been in the OR for 2.5 years now and I'm switching jobs soon. One of the places I'm interviewing with is a level 1 trauma center and I have absolutely no experience with that. I'm pretty well rounded and I'd be willing to learn, but I was just curious on what the learning curve would be like? And do OR's have trauma teams, or is everyone expected to know how to do it?

    I had fun meeting new people today. It was nice to meet you! :-) Some people were just familiar faces that I needed to put a name to. I doubt I'll remember all the names the first time though. -lol-

    Did you go to the book store after class? I went and it was a MAD HOUSE in there!
    No, I went straight home. Was everyone picking up their box kits or whatever?

    That honestly doesn't ring any bells, but I'm not known for having the best memory. Sorry

    So what'd you think?

    I didn't even think of that. But with out thinking I just printed them all on one side. But I guess I'm glad I didn't think about saving paper?

    Oh and I ran out of ink at about page 60. But I ended up only paying 15 for another ink cartridge. I can't believe kinkos would have charged me probably over $100.

    I just decided to do it at my home computer. So far my ink cartridge is holding up. We'll see though... Only 91 pages left lol.

    But thanks anyway

    Well don't go to kinkos. They wanted to charge $70 for the one that's like 145 pages. F THAT.
