    I never said I was set on anything. But I want to know specifically why it is bad. I have only seen generalizations. My reasons for wanting to go are not travel related...more family stuff.

    Crazy understaffing and crappy management is what I've read over and over again. Try a search on a this and other forums for specifics.

    Don't come to Vegas for nursing. I'm here now as a traveler. None of the other travelers are happy.Horrible nurse to patient ration, terrible management, limited resources, a lot of new grads who usually do not have a lot of guidance...I wanted to cancel my contract, but now it's almost over. Definitely will NOT be extending. I want OUT. And so do the other travelers I have been working with. Not worth it to ME.

    I personally have not traveled in Vegas but another travel RN told me her experience. She was working med surg and the nurses would take 8-10 pts. One night the 2 staff rns took 8pts a piece and gave the traveler 4 pts. She thought they were being nice but no. She got the first 4 admits before they took one. She said that's how it went for that contract. She did not renew contract obviously.

    I do ER and traveled at one place in NYC that did stuff like that. Like there could be 20 nurses on, 120 PTs in ER and two vents. And they would give me both vents in addition to my 10 other PTs. Or they would give me a trauma 5 minutes before my shift ended at 8 when there were plenty of nurses who were there until midnight. So I would always wind up being stuck there an hour or two after my shift .Crap like that. I didn't renew. Not because my feelings were hurt but because I thought it was dangerous. That was the only time I truly felt picked on as a traveler. That particular facility uses a lot of travelers and most do not renew
