    In September I submitted to Houston and Amarillo. The pay rates were about $28.00/hr. Don't really know if they are close to San Antonio. I want an assignment in Charlotte but they are non-existant. Any ideas?

    travel positions in charlotte are easier to come by in the spring and summer, if interested.

    Baptist Health System in San Antonio has a "winter RN" program with high pay rates and bonuses on completion, www.baptisthealth.org. There is a hospital about 30 miles north of SA which may be a good bet, www.mckenna.org.

    I looked on the site and saw mention of the full-time winter contract. I could not find any info on what this entails. Could be interested if I knew what that was.

    cook children's medical center offers winter bonus program. The base salary is 35.00- 40.00 hour, plus weekend shift diff. 2.00. Night diff is 4.00 They also get a bonus after contract is complete. This is a six month contract. I have been told that some of the nurses that pick up extra shifts have made about 45 grand during this period.
