    Please let us know how your assignment has been! I'm hoping to be there end of May or first part of June.

    Thanks!

    meandragonbrett,

    What agency do you work for? I'm researching for my first travel assignment. I have talked with Professional Nursing Services and World Wide Travel as I am looking to go to St Thomas. Thanks for any info!

    krismc,

    Just wondering about the insurance with the Professional Nursing. A recruiter told me I would receive a stipend per month for me to use toward whatever insurance I wanted, if any, but, the website says THEY provide insurance. Just noticed this today so haven't been able to call him back to clarify but wondered how it worked out for you. Thanks!

    Nursinadream,

    You are right about only a few companies having assignments in USVI. Professional and World Wide Travel Staffing are the only 2 I've talked to so far but Cross Country and Trustaff are next on my list. Who have you talked with, if any, and what are your thoughts about them?

    What does your husband do? Mine is an LVN but even if we didn't go there he isn't interested in nursing. After travelling he is going to culinary school so he is looking forward to working in the food industry in St Thomas. The exposure will be great experience for him.

    I don't know what area you are in but I'm in North Texas and there are no shortage of jobs here. I do have a great job, I think. ER in a small hospital w/good pay. My status is PRN but I've always worked full time hours w/overtime almost always available if I want it. When we move back to the states we will be in Northeast Texas and a few months ago I researched jobs there, again, with no shortage. I don't like changing jobs though. Too much paperwork and hoops to jump through. And now that I've talked with a couple of agencies, it's more so than I thought. But this will be my first travel assignment, so I'm just learning all about this.

    Good luck and maybe we'll see you there soon!

    Hello!

    I don't have any info to offer but will be watching this thread as I am attempting to begin a travel assignment
    in St Thomas soon.

    Which company did you go with and why?

    Thanks!

    How interesting, you are still there, and teaching! Sounds great!

    Yes, I've about figured out from research online that I will need to be flexible and patient to work there. And the pay is not the highest there. But I'm not looking to make a ton of money. As one recruiter told me, if I'm looking for a working vacation, this is the job to have. If I'm looking to have $6000 in my pocket when I leave, this is probably not the job for me. I understand, I just didn't want to settle for less or be taken advantage of, esp since I'm a newbie.

    Thanks again for all the info!

    aburlar,

    Thanks for the prompt reply. Were you happy with Cross Country TravCorps? Did you research other companies before going with them? I was a little dissapointed w/pay quote from World Wide Travel Staffing, however, since this is my first travel job I am new to putting my whole package together with the housing, hourly rate, mileage, taxes, etc; It's still a little confusing to me. Thanks again!

    LOL, I won't worry about the lizards! Kinda like them, myself. And I've read about how bad the mosquitoes are, so the lizards get to stay!

    Does anyone know of a good travel agency with assignments in St Thomas? I was originally interested in St Croix but have been told they have a money crunch and are not using travelers now. This would be my first travel job so any info is helpful. Thanks in advance!
