Help! Need new agency for NV

  1. I currently work at an HCA facility at Sunrise in las Vegas. They do not need an extension and my contract ends 1/20. I want desperately to stay in Vegas however my travel company only goes to a few hospitals here that are not looking for travelers, it's an HCA and they stopped taking a major insurace carrier. I am trying to find an agency that goes to the Valley hospitals or St. Rose, does anyone know of a good company that goes to these facilities that need nurses. Thanks for you help.

    you didn't say who your current company was..
    I know a few months back this company was needing something in Nevada
    Western Staffing at 1-888-764-0067
    No idea if they are good or bad, never spoken with them.
    Also Try Fastaff.. The last email they sent me with listings (01/08/2007)
    has ICU, SICU, Trauma ICU, Medical ICU, ER, Tele, MS, and more
    http://www.fastaff.com I have traveled with them before and have never had and issues. Don't know if they are at the hospitals you listed but worth a shot. Maybe you can at least get one in Vegas.

    good luck to you

    My agency is Premier Healthcare Professionals. I have talked with Fastaff and they are looking towards Desert Inn for me, however I would really like to look into St. Rose Hospital. Anyone else know if there is an agency that goes to this hospital. Thanks for your advice.

    Michelle - what was Desert Springs like? I am considering a position that was offered to me there...I will be in ICU, though. Anything you can tell me would be great!
