    You are so entitled to your opinion, as am I, and thank you for sharing Webster's take on the subject as well...I would love to continue this debate with you on a more appropriate forum...if you have paid dues for 30 years, I understand your strong stance on the subject...if you didn't, then those thousands of dollars you've spent over the years were in vain. I feel that the unions are out for themselves or they wouldn't let strikes go on for over a month, as that is how long the hospitals have to wait before their insurance kicks in...but I am sure you have an answer for that as well...
    I know the hospitals only consider patients as moneymakers, and I also know nurses are expected to work under horrific conditions and need a way to stand up for themselves...I just don't happen to believe that being unionized is the answer...it is the patients that suffer...let me know if you'd like to continue this debate and I will be glad to join you.

    i know North california pays more than Southern cali. Arizona pay is about 30$ with pd. housing. Be sure to ask the facility what their policy is re. travelers and overtime. Worked at a couple that would work short in er rather than have travelers do overtime unless they were desperate.

    If you want the big money work strikes they will usually get you to work 6-7 days a week. I worked for a company out of california Called "globalnursesonline.com" was making over $50/hr out in California when I took the stipend instead of the apartment (Had an RV I lived in). The point I want to make is there is a reason you are going to make good money as the hospitals are usually a dive and they are not "magnet" hospitals by any stretch. I can tell you my last week working for them in Fresno I worked 7 12-hour shifts in a row and my last paycheck for ONE WEEK was over $4700. I never saw less than $3000 per week with them.

    My understanding is that Fastaff does 48 hour assignments, sounds like a place to start for you, built in extra day every week.
