I will be relocating to Philly around Nov 2013 to start nurse anesthesia school, which begins in Jan 2014. I am experienced in Critical Care and Operating Room nursing. I am trying to figure out what are some good agenices to work for in the Philly area for per-diem? I am new to Philly and know nothing about which agencies the major hospitals use for their contracts. Since school doesn't start until Jan, I will be able to work full-time until Jan and will need to switch to PRN or per-diem. I think it will be better to work for an agency versus directly for a hospital since I wouldn't owe any committments.
Looking on the internet, there doesn't seem to be many hospitals that are hiring experienced nurses in the Philly area for PRN/Per-diem work. I know the VA Medical Center in Philly is hiring in the SICU and OR but only for full-time. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
