  1. Hca Agency
    We call them the evil empire. Do a search on HCA and All About Staffing here on allnurses and you'll see why. They are crooks in my opinion.

  2. Medical Staffing Network
    Honestly, they are probably one of the worst out there. Consider Favorite Nurses or Cascade Health Services instead.

  3. Providence Medical Center KC Kansas
    Providence has a very poor reputation in the KC area. They really need to learn how to staff the place. It's bad.

  4. Select Specialty Hospital in Kansas
    They've gone downhill big time over the last 9 months. I used to work there for my agency, but they decided to go exlusive with a new upstart agency that undercut pay. Since then, the place has...

  5. Starting a Staffing Agency
    What I've told you may at first glance seem "wrong" to you, but if you take the time to do your research, you'll find it's quite the contrary. I can speak from experience with regard to giving...

  7. Starting a Staffing Agency
    The choice to form a limited liability entity depends on many factors, and indeed some small business owners are perfectly fine operating as sole props rather than a more "formal" entity. Forming a...

  8. Any reputable resources for starting an agency?
    The best way to learn about agencies is to work in the office of one. Forget the how to books. Once you are working "in" the industry, meaning in the office not as an agency nurse, you'll have a...

    You can look forward to shortstaffed units, politics galore, lower pay than other hospitals in the area and so much more! :lol2:

  13. how to start nursing agency
    Most any website on the subject is going to try to sell you their "how to package". Much like the late night infomercials on network tv, they make pie in the sky promises but don't tell you the...

  14. Accounts Receivable Factoring?
    Put simply: Don't factor. It will bleed you dry, and you'll likely never catch up with your revolving debt. If you don't have the seed money needed to employ people or at least a solid line of...

    To add to your list of restricted states, off the top of my head: - Kentucky has a licensing requirement specific to nurse staffing. - Illinois requires a physical office in the state. - Florida...

  16. Anyone know Liquid Agents?
    Very first post, and it's an endorsement (or at least a strong defending) of the company. I smell a shill. Anyone else?

  17. Which agency does the VA use.
    They actually do both. I'd suggest contacting your local VA's purchasing office and simply asking them who they use for staffing help.

  19. How to Find an Agency?
    In my opinion, word of mouth is by far the best way to find a quality agency. The amount an agency advertises says very little. They may have tons of openings, they may have trouble holding on to...

  20. How do you know if Agency Nursing is for you?
    For me, it goes something like this. My 5 reasons for (and against) working agency: 1.) If you want flexibility in work schedules, agency is a plus. I like to go on a lot of vacations throughout...

  22. How many hours would you work?
    I would work 36-40. I love my job. Not working gets boring really fast. If every day is a weekend, it kind of takes the fun out of time off.

  24. KC shift differentials
    From weekday day shift to weekend night shift I typically see about $5-7 diff. I work agency though and have for many years full-time, so I'm out of the loop on staff diffs.
