Hi. I am hoping to get some input for my grad school project. I am investigating the differences in perceptions of agency nurses and travelers. If you need supplemental staffing for your unit which would you be likely to employ and why? Do you think staff nurses have different feelings about travelers vs. agency? What benefits would you see in using travelers over agency or vice versa? In this economy has your hospital or institution called for a freeze or required scaling back on either?
Certainly feel free to tell me any other thoughts you may have on the subject.
I really appreciate your time! I am finishing the nursing portion of my MSN/MBA this Spring and have learned a lot from scanning the posts here. (The business portion will be fininshed next year) Maybe my research will be helpful to someone else!
Have a great day.
