    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!
