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
I was a ICU Travel Nurse. Your opening sentence says it all and you should just honor it. Why? You are working as a travel nurse under contract with your agency and in turn the hospital.
Faststaff set you up. There will be less positions US Nursing(also Faststaff) will need to fill for the impending strike. That is my two cents.
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.
Please leave you abusive relationship. I don't care if you travel or not, that needs to be done. Cut all ties with this person. No one deserves to be abused.
