    Most agencies do reimburse for direct licensure costs with receipts, but may not reimburse for associated costs such as background check and license verifications.

    Well I've just started, my first day by myself was yesterday. I would say do your research ask your recruiter for more than one option to interview for. It's not bad where I'm at its just different from what I'm use to. I guess I need to shake that fast bc it's always gonna be different from what you're "use to." They don't have a lot of ancillary help, so the nurse wears many hats. The people I work with are extremely nice so it makes it better. I think I just jumped for the first position I heard available! I'm learning from my experience now what to do for my next assignment! Good luck with everything!

    I started in January, almost done with my first assignment! I've heard mixed opinions from other travel nurses at my assignment. Some love it, some are counting down the days. I work in Peds by the way, my experience has been ok. the nurses are amazing I love them, super helpful and friendly. I've worked in a different specialty then what I am working in now so that was an adjustment. The one downside is being by yourself for however long your contract is. I like the pt, and the company I'm with. Though I've had my days where I feel like I just wanna fly back home. Look through the Allnurses website I'm sure someone has traveled to the Dallas area, that's what I did to sorta prepare myself for this assignment!
