- Jul 1, '11 by RNERHOUSESUPORHere are some more photos of the rig. Still a work in progress but hopefully nearing completion soon. Considering the final toyhauler but need to wait a bit to determine what else are "have to" projects.
- Jul 1, '11 by RN ZekeI love to travel, however it is time to re think this issue with the increase in gas prices and the lower pay RN's are getting as travel nurses. Travel pay has not increased as I have done this for a number of years. My RV sits idle as it is too expensive to travel with it.One car per year due to the many miles is a real killer. My husband's hrly wage is higher than mine, better benefits and has a much bigger input in his schedule as an RN. What is wrong with this pic?
- Jul 1, '11 by wanderinrnI am hoping to start a travel assignment about Nov 1st. We have an RV, a 39' bounder, that we bought with the intention of using to winter in warm places. Hoping to get an assignment in a smaller facility PACU/SDS which is what my most recent experience is in. I have worked endo, cardiac cath, radiology, med surg, rehab, psych. I feel the pacu or med surg will probably be the most marketable. Any recommendations re: staffing company to go with?
Thanks for any info!
- Jul 8, '11 by BABYPREPWe had travelled for 2 1/2 years around CA and FL in our 34' Holiday Rambler, towing our Saturn SC2(best tow, IMO). We lovedit. Settled to work in Miami for last three years, but politics became too much for me and we are going North for the summer to be closer to family in Canada. Can't wait to leave...... Probably gonna use a local ND company to work L&D in a crisis situation in Williston, ND. Pay is good, but I have to pay $1000 in gas to get there. $250/month RV lot rent so it's worth it. We'll see.... I'll keep you posted...Last edit by BABYPREP on Jul 8, '11 : Reason: add photo, nope
- Jul 8, '11 by wanderinrnI have heard that ND is really booming as far as jobs of all kinds are concerned, I heard their unemployment is about 3% or something.....
- Jul 8, '11 by RNERHOUSESUPOR$250 a month for lot rent? you have to pay electric for that don't you?? I stayed in a Mobile home park for $220 a month once but had to cut the grass, pay the electric and shovel the snow.
- Jul 8, '11 by BABYPREPThere is an oil boom in the Dakotas... As for the lot rent...It is in a very small town, 20 minutes south of Williston. So that's why the low price.... Some lots in south (snowbird area) Texas are $250/month. I got the job and I'm leaving July 18th, starting around 25th or 26th... I can't wait for small town America!!!! Here's a pic of our Rig....
- Aug 21, '11 by Mercy65Hoping to start traveling by Jan, can anyone tell me if you can claim your RV as a primary residence so you don't have to pay tax on the stipens. House is up for sale and don't want to keep it unless we can't sell.
- Aug 21, '11 by RNERHOUSESUPORNo, you must have a home away from your travel assignment and it must qualify as a tax home to be able to deduct expenses and some of the taxes. Contact a Tax Professional before allowing an Agency to talk you into an"Tax Advantage" program. In my experience the only tax advantage if for the Agency. Let us know what your tax professional tells you.
- Jan 28, '12 by RNERHOUSESUPORGood morning all,
No activity on this for a while so I thought I'd give it a bump.
Have an option of parking my RV on a piece of private property during my next assignment. Not sure how to approach the rental agreement. Do I just do a verbal agreement (if a rental agreement isn't supplied by the owner) or should I have something written up and ready? I haven't looked at the property yet (other than on Google Earth) and don't know if I will agree to stay there once I see it in person. Have other options in the area so it's not a last resort type of thing. One of my concerns are the "gravel roads" leading to the property. It may be less than the park I stayed at last year (and I hated the gravel) but it may be more. Thank you in advance for any comments, suggestions or concerns.
