Travel Agency Review

  1. 0 A while ago I was wandering around the internet and came across a website that had a section where travel nurses could rate the travel companies they had traveled with. Now that I am actually interested and ready to travel I cant find that site again. Can anyone help me out, for some reason I think the word "hobo" was either in the title of the page or in the address. I know that isnt a lot to go on but that is all I have Also the main page was brownish in color and the site was run by a travel nurse. Well I am going to thank everyone in advance for what ever help they can give me. Or even if you know of a site that might be just as good as the one I mentioned I would appreciate that site address also. Thanks all

    I know of the one you are writing about. If I find it, I will let you know. I think you can also rate hospitals as well.

    I found it! www.travelnurse.org

    There is another one where you can rate the hospital also, but I need to find that one now, too.

    Thanks for the website addresses, however I have only one problem. The www.travelnurse.org isnt a good link, I didnt find a site at the end of it. Do you think you may have left out a letter or something in the name. Sounds pretty petty to be asking such a thing but since you went through so much trouble to find it . Well thanks anyway for your time on the matter. Have a good day.

    Hello, I can't not help you find the site. I have been looking for it myself. But, I have been a traveler for years and can help with companies. I am currently in Hawaii and have a great company here. They are located in Hawaii and get great jobs and pay better than others. Plus you have that personal touch with them. You will actually get to meet the personel you talk too.

    The website is http://www.geocities.com/hobonurse/ if you are still looking for it. What agency do you work for in Hawaii, and what sort of pay and benefits do they offer, what type of hospitals and what types of unit. I am an ICU Nurse and that is what I am looking for at the moment. I am going to go with Aureus at the moment cause they have a few assignments in my immediate area, but if I can find an assignment in Hawaii that would be great. Thanks for your time.

    Hello my fellow Travelers!!!
    I encourage anyone who can.... to do at least one assignment!! It's the best decision I have ever made! A few years ago I decided to start a new chapter in my life and I decided I wanted to try out traveling......and I had no idea how....Who do I contact ? How does this work? I talked to a few friends and they suggested I contact a company called Flexcare Medical Staffing, so I did and I was put in contact with a recruiter. I must say at first I was a little hesitant, I thought for sure this girl just want's to make money by me taking an assignment. Well needless to say several assignments later she was a bridesmaid in my wedding! I never thought starting out on this adventure, that I would end up meeting the man of my dreams and a life long friend. Leaving your friends & family all behind is NOT easy, but having a recruiter that you can call and vent to, is extremely important! The one thing that I found different about her and Flexcare is that they have built the company on referrals, they don't do any advertising yet they are featured as a Top 10 Agency, I think that's pretty impressive! Not to mention she worked at a hospital for 5 years and has her degree in Hospital Administration so I feel like she truly understands the needs and concerns we as nurses have! I hope whatever agency you go to treats you as well as mine has. Yes making money is why we go out on this adventure, but having someone you can trust to have your best interest at heart is something you can't just find anywhere!! Good luck to all of you!! Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions about traveling I have done several assignments!!

    I'm an ER nurse in Canada, looking into the possibility of travel nursing stateside. I've been reading all these threads about the different agencies, now just wondering what to ask. When contacting the different agencies to find the right fit, what questions should I be asking? I know things will slip my mind or I won't think of them until I come across it and it may be too late. So yeah, what things are important to find out before choosing?!
    Thanks!
