  1. Guaranteed hours, first contract questions
    An offer is only acceptable if it is acceptable to you. Did you discuss work schedule during the interview? If you are concerned, call the manager prior to accepting the contract.

  2. What's the average time to get a contract?
    Generally, if you haven't been interviewed in 3 days, your chances are poor. You are competing with a large pool of medsurg travelers and if your profile is at the bottom of a large stack on a...

  3. Contract questions, in over my head
    Sure you "qualify", unless the hospital has a restriction greater than 100 miles (some do so they don't hurt permanent staff recruitment). From an IRS standpoint, your home will be where you move to,...

    I thought I covered the issues pretty well, but I see other posters have added detail. If you want to read more about any of those issues, you can do a search on this site and find hours of happy...

    Large agencies such as American Mobile, Cross Country, and especially Supplemental (which started out specializing in psych).

    Myrtle Beach is cool. But I don't think the hospital there is the place you will find safe staffing ratios.

    I suspect the moderators will quickly delete that post. Yes, MSSI of Wisconsin is a good but very small agency. I've met them at the Travelers Conference in Vegas and even worked with them once. So...

    Ever worked with Fastaff? Same company. The lines are a bit blurred but I think they try to restrict the USNursing brand to strikes.

    Both those lists have "sponsors" or advertising money behind the scenes.

    I'm not sorry! RNVIP is a notorious site that collects contact numbers and sells them to anyone. Recruiters hate having to cold call RN students and those just "thinking about it." The poor fools...

    Thanks for that post. I had thought you needed a lawyer to collect penalties on top of pay owed. It it sounds as if the hospital was complicit in the pay issue. Parallon should have a profit...

  16. Share your packing routine and tips
    Greyhound might be a good way to go - pick up at depot at your leisure. UPS to any UPS store for a pick up fee. General delivery to any post office for free.

    I did elaborate above. The nurse who has only lived with her parents. I can make up other examples. You made the distinction of an SO being allowed.

    Hi Joe, Please note my restraint in making jokes about accepting tokes. That would be quasi-legal at best in only a couple states. ;-). Also, IRS and logic! Are you able to cite a reference for an...

    Hey Joe! There is no doubt this traveler has a tax home, having never lived anywhere else. The question is if she still has a tax home away from home on business. There is also no doubt that she...

  22. Any Washington or Oregon Hospitals to avoid?

  24. Advice on these pay packages please
    Nope. IRS only sees withholding taxes. They have no idea what you make per hour. A large swing in income in our tax bracket will not trigger an audit.

    No, it is not a walkthrough. But you can expedite a license application by doing LiveScan in state.
