    Seeking peoples experiences with CrossCountry Travcorp?
    I personally had a very poor experience with Cross country Trav Corp and would never travel with them or recommend them to anyone. Their clinical support is extremely poor. Just my opinion.

    Very interesting comments----- I will be starting my FIRST assignment with cctc in Jan.'07. Since I am a newbie at traveling, I'm sure that I have MUCH to learn. I'm also aware that I may not have played all my cards as I should. It's a learning experience!

    I am traveling with CCTC's sister company, Nova Pro. It is a smaller company but uses the same job database as CCTC. I am very happy with my current recruiter. Delphiforums, as another allnurses.com member suggested, is a good place to get feedback on CCTC or any other company, for that matter. Just do a search. I would say the most important thing in travel nursing is to do your research before you call a company, and read your contract very carefully! I also second the notion that having several recruiters is a good rule of thumb (after you have done your research, that is!) Take other travelers' opinions with a grain of salt, but realize there is a lot of wisdom in "been there, done that" stories. A good recruiter is worth his/her weight in gold. I had a housing issue (complex said my apt. wasn't ready to move-in a day before I was set to move!) and my recruiter and housing coordinator had the problem resolved to my satisifaction within an hour of my notification of the problem. Sadly, it seems that many travelers have had poor experiences with agency support. Good luck!

    I am currently on my first assignment with CCTC, and have been satisfied with the assignment so far. My recruiter is excellent. I have had no issues with her service at all.

    The only thing that I was a little miffed about was what I was and was not reimbursed for. Since this is my first travelling experience, I'm not sure how it is with other companies.

    CCTC did not reimburse all of the fees that it took to get my California license. They only paid for the application fee. The total fees came out to almost $200 and I was only paid for $80 of it.

    The only other issue I had was they were wanting to require me to take a certification course that my nurse manager told me wasn't required. The cost was $250 and I would have had to travel 1 hour each way. I did end up getting that resolved to my satisfaction.

    Otherwise, good experience so far!

    I am also starting w/ Novapro in Jan 2007. My friend traveled with them and really enjoyed her experience. They have been very nice and accomodating for me.

    I left in the middle of an contract with them years ago after finding out other nurses with their company in the same ICU got paid more money!

    Traveled with them before and had no issues except that my recruiter was so pushy but I had no complaints. Later down the road a friend of mine was traveling with them and we were on the same assignment with different companies and she found out she was making way less than I was and put a call out to her recruiter and she basically got more $ in the end to match what I was making. It's all about negotiating and making a company and recruiter work for you.
