    I don't pay for private housing with my agency. In fact, I just took a virtual tour of the private apt I will be occupying for my next assignment- Master suite, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, washer/dryer, phone, cable TV, fireplace, utilities, linens/dishes, furniture, etc provided and paid for by my agency. The pay is great, and my recruiter is very nice, too.


    I've gotten calls from lots other agencies- including American Mobile. they offered me $16.00 per hr less than I am getting now, for a nearly identical assignment.

    I travelled with AMN for 2 years and I regret it. I went with them when I first became a travel rn because they were in all the magazines and seemed to be the most popular. Every time I took an assignment, if I wanted to extend the pay got decreased by 0.50 - $1.00 per hour. I am sorry but you can't tell me the facility is doing that. Once I started talking to other travelers I realized I was getting a bad deal. Now I work for a company that has FREE private housing w/ linens, cable, phone, appliances, pots and pans, rental car, and airfare all included, plus $30 - 35 / hour every contract. Sorry, AMN can't even come close to that. Plus when I working for them I didn't even know they didn't provide long or short term disability. Now I make sure any company I goes with has that. AMN is too big of a company to be so cheap. They are getting 3x's what you are and still wanna pay crappy while nurses work like dogs. LOL. Like I said before, I really wish I would have know a traveler to ask questions to before I started.
    Please PM me the name of your agency(ies)!

    Hello I was wondering ifd you would send me a private message with your company information as well. I am thinking of getting into travel nursing and am interested in speaking with people who do this for the pros and cons. Thank you in advance.

    Hello nyck76 can you PM me which company you work with?

    I've heard that AMN has a monopoly on may hospital chains in CA? Is this true or does anyone know of a company that has lots of CA contracts? I work in OR.

    Thanks

    Socialjustice, there are dozens of travel agencies that can get you a job in CA. AMN doesn't have a monopoly on anything....they are exclusive to Stanford, and that's about it. Same with Cross Country....they have a contract with Cedars Sinai (which sucks).

    Stay away from AMN.
