I am currently a nurse in the suberbs of Chicago working for the past year and a half on a cardiac/tele floor. I've been a nurse for a total of 2 1/2 years. I'm 25 years old, single, no kids, living with my parents.. so basically I have no ties to keep me home and nothing to lose. I've been reading all of the horror stories on here and it has me slightly discouraged.
One question I have is, what is the quality/type of housing usually? Is it normally in an extended stay hotel or in a small condo/apartment type? If it is in a hotel, does this work out okay or is it pretty inconvenient??
As far as finding a trustworthy and reliable agency and recruiter, I have no idea where to begin. I have been looking at travelnursecentral.com which posts the "top agencies in 2012." Does anyone know if this is a reliable website to take advice from? I've also been looking at the posts on here, but I can never tell which are the legitimate posts by actual nurses who have worked with the agencies or just recruiters trying to get more clients.
Any info would be helpful. At the moment I can't respond to PM's so if you want to send me a PM either leave your email address or just email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org
