I would stay away from Cross Country and AMN. Giving the max stipends is not something they are known for. As they simply put it "the bill rate wont allow for it"...... I have NEVER heard anything positive from AMN. Recruiters are not trained well. Many horror stories I have read and heard. Just avoid AMN. Cross Country pays you a biweekly paycheck, No bueno! I am going to need that weekly.
Expedient medstaff. MGA Healthcare. Medical Staffing Solutions. Those are who you want to start with.
Avoid HCA hospital assignments.
Central and NorCal you come out way ahead vs So Cal. Its really simple to figure it out.
^^medical staffing solutions. PM me for the recuriter. The positions are filled right now. Maybe some in the fall. I am sure many are renewing. LOL
They told me up front they expect the ADON to work the floor and do the rest of her duties. It's no wonder they can't keep staff.
Med surg unlikely at the moment. Maybe during the winter for crisis. L&D and OR crisis rates get that throughout the year.. Some crisis rates in Sacramento were paying ICU 3391 a week but after tax 2600.
you can get any BON to pick up the phone if you hit the correct prompt for lets say you want to report a violation. You get a live person the next ring. That person will then direct your phone call to someone that can actually help you. It worked for me in three different states. Get creative people
Nurses need to put the brakes on these travel companies. They need US, WE DO NOT NEED THEM. Without US, there is NO Agency. Without Agency, There is still US. I can tell you a 5 Hospitals in Dallas that offer direct contracts. They also provide shift diff for nights, eves, and weekends and a higher rate than the agency due to No middleman.
I got a quote from Medical Staffing Solutions of $660 gross for Texas with them covering housing. Is that the norm?
oh mostly Caucasian people....got it
I recently visited Sacramento. I liked it. Very affordable compared to the rest of California.
Can you give me the names? this would be great for me since I'm only 3 hrs away from Dallas
