  1. May be traveling to Seattle, WA
    I loved working as a traveler at Harborview (part of the U of W) system. They're very traveler-friendly. I don't know much about Swedish.

  2. Seattle travel contract
    I really liked living the Green Lake area. I also have a friend who did a clinical (for a profession other than nursing) in Seattle and found temp housing close to the U of W campus. She liked that...

  5. Advice on traveling?
    I'm sorry you had a tough experience. I hope your next one is much better. For your next contract, get the shift/hours specified in the contract, so they can't flip it on you.

  12. I dread going to work- not a new grad. Has this happened to anyone else?
