So I've been working in an agency, and while I'm getting along fine, a set "full time" job would be much more comfortable. I've been getting good reviews from the main LTC agency I get sent to... So my question is, is it terrible etiquette to apply to this place that seems to be requesting me specifically more and more?
You need to know what your agency's policy is on this as stated above.
DO NOT APPLY until you know what could happen. Some agencies state 6 months or even longer between the time you last worked at a place and being hired, or a fee will be charged. If the facility chooses to pay the fee - and some will, if you are a good fit and already well-oriented - they may make you sign a contract that you must stay a set amount of time, or you will be asked to reimburse the fee.
Keep in mind, that the as an agency nurse, you are not involved in the facility's politics, and that you may not be seeing many of those issues. Such as , why do they need you so often?
