I am planning on being a first time traveler starting this summer. I am going to the D.C. area because I have a friend there and thought that would be a good place for a first assignment. Because I'm location specific and the D.C. area is expensive, I am not expecting to make tons of money. However, I've been disappointed at what I've been quoted by two of the agencies I've talked to. I would basically be making the same that I make at home with American Mobile. FlexCare is offering more but they do not provide license or travel reimbursement. Aureus says that they can only guess at a pay rate at this point. They are guessing at a much higher pay rate that what I make now + housing + travel and nursing license reimbursement. It's hard for me to believe they can pay so much more than the other two companies have quoted me though!
Does anyone have any experience with these companies? What should I expect to be making?
