Get hired on as a weekender and do that for 6 months then go PRN. Yes, no life but in the end you will have what you want. No one said it was going to be this hard but it will be very hard.
@ PMFB-RN Thank you I have a many people I no longer want contacting me.
Even if you feel like you settled so what, maybe you did however time to move forward and help progress the profession. I am not a NP. Thought about it.
ICU $35 an hour for two days a month and if you worked more it was $45. $37 an hour 4 required days a month and if you worked more it was $47 an hour
Cedars will take you. Look for maybe 42 an hour day shift. My friend was offered 44 last year for 4 years of exp.
Not sure why you made a throw away account for this question. Do the M-Friday thing and get a PRN job that requires a max days of 2 shifts a month or work Agency PRN when you feel like it. When you do PRN through the hospital you have to work your holidays. With agency nursing you do not.
Avoid Kaiser San Francisco ICU's. The manager is screwy from what I been told.
Yes, there is some red tape because of the different unions. I would reach out to my SoCal union rep. My friend works at a Norcal Kaiser and works with someone that came from San Diego to Wine Country. I'll ask today. If you find out before me be sure to comeback and give information.
You're right. I would not live in So Cal as a single person at ALL!.
NICU nurses will be expected to do Peds, Mother and Baby and maybe PICU.
I am thinking about doing travel nursing for the first time. Does anyone have any advice on how I should think about compensation: per hour rate, whether housing is covered, pre- and post-tax rates, etc.? I am totally confused. If anyone can point me in the right direction on how I can compare rates, I would be very appreciative.
So what happened? You get the perm or are you still waiting?
I sent off for my Georgia license last week and I recieved an email from them the next day with a link to where I can log in and see updates. Also, I had to get ink fingerprinted and mail it to a company in California for my background check. They only accept electronic fingerprints if you go to specific locations within the state of Georgia. The nurse manager at the hospital I have been hired at says it typically takes 3 weeks to get a Georgia license. I just hope there is no delay so my start date is not pushed back.
So, I went on to the VA's website and they have their own travel nursing program. Would you think it would be better to work directly with the VA, or go through another company? I did call the VA's recruiter, but I haven't heard back yet.
