My first travel assignment

  1. 0
    HELLO...... I HAVE BEEN NURSING FOR ALMOST 5 YEARS AND MY PASSION IS TRAVELING . SO I PUT THE TWO TOGETHER AND MY DREAM HAS COME TRUE. IM NOW A TRAVEL NURSE ON MY FIRST ASSISGNMENT IN INDIANA. SO FAR IM ENJOYING IT. ALSO IM LOVING THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE OF A NEW LOCATION/ HOSPITAL ROUTINE/POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. BUT ALL IN ALL NURSING IS NURSING. I WORKED ON A RENAL/MED/SURG/TELE UNIT BEFORE I STARTED TRAVELING AND ENDED UP TAKING A MED-SURG/POST SURGICAL /TRAUMA POSITION. AT FIRST I WAS A NERVOUS (WHICH IS NORMAL FOR MOST) DUE TO A NEW PLACE/PEOPLE AND FLOOR/HOSPITAL,ETC. THE STAFF RNS AND TECHS ARE NICE AND HELPFUL AND APPROCHABLE WHICH IS GREAT. I HAVE BEEN AT THE FACILITY FOR A MONTH AND HAVE 2 MONTHS LEFT..YAY! MY BEST ADVICE IS TO GO IN WITH A POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND NEVER A NEGATIVE. KEEP SMILING AND KNOW THAT GOD WILL NEVER PUT TOO MUCH ON YOU THAT YOU CANT HANDLE. IN NURSING WE ALL HAVE OVERWHELMING DAYS , THE BEST THING TO KNOW IS THAT AT 0708 ITS TIME FOR A NEW SHIFT AND YOU CAN FINALLY EXHALE!! LOL! .```````` ANYWAYS I WORK WITH NURSES CHOICE. THEY PAY WELL AND I HAVE GOOD INSURANCE FOR 25$ A WEEK. PAY IS WEEKLY. I WORK 48 HOURS A WEEK (DONT THINK I WILL DO 48 A WEEK ON THE NEXT ASSISGNMENT, I WILL DO IT ONLY IF I DESIRE TO PICK UP A DAY). ALSO IF YOU HAVE EMAR EXPERIENCE (EX: EPIC, QUEST, CERNER...ETC) , LET ME KNOW!! CAUSE ITS SOME GOOD MONEY TO BE MADE!

    I am glad you liked IN. I am a L&D nurse and hoping to get a contract in Indiana. What company are you with if you don't mind.

    She's with Nursechoice. It's hard to read all caps but I was able to pick that up from her post.
