I just signed a contract!Register Today!
- by Hellllllo Nurse Dec 14, '04I signed a contract today for a 13 week travel nursing assignment.
I will be working in my home state. The job starts Jan 3, but hubby and I will be going up a week early to have Christmas with our families.
I will working 120 miles away from my mom's house, but the unit agreed to schedule my shifts all in a row, so that I will have 3-4 days off a week to go stay with my mom.
The job pays $9.00/hr more than I was making at my job here, and includes free, private housing at a luxury apt complex. Dishes, microwave, TV, coffee maker and linens are provided, as well as a one-car garage. I will have guaranteed pay- meaning that if my shifts are cancelled for any reason, I still get paid for 36 hrs a week. My travel to and from the job is paid, also.
I am so excited! :hatparty:

- Dec 14, '04 by suzanne4Congratulations...............right now it is the only way to go...........everything taken care of for you.
If you want high-speed internet, you wil have to pay for it, as well as any upgrades to your cable television. Otherwise, it is taken care of...
- Dec 14, '04 by Town & CountryThe address change is a pain in the neck, though.
But I'm with you, I love travel nursing. I'm on my first assignment. I like having everything taken care of for me.
I also like NOT being an employee of the hospital. I don't have to get involved in the petty squabbles and back-biting......I try to stay apart but they will test you.
Don't let anybody walk all over you or they will continue to do it.
You have to be confident, like people, and it helps to be outgoing and assertive.....just my opinion.
People get away with what they can..........LOL.
