Hello all, I wanted to know what some of the common acronyms for travel nursing used on the allnurses means and basically just get a simple clarification. ALSO, I am told Cali is the best state to travel nurse and make income. Please feel free to list the best hospitals you had experience working in (more so if you are telemetry/med surg because that is what I will have to be working).
Apart from this, I know no hospital is perfect nor is every travel company or recruiter.. so I am open taking into consideration what are the KEY things to consider,look for and make necessity when starting a contract. I am new never travel nursed before
List of my things/priorities referenced above:
1- income/take home money,how to get most I can
2-what to negotiate if things go bad (contract cancelled/fired,complaints etc)
3- legal implications/disciplinary actions should something occur in work environment
3a- what happens if in future if a legal case were to happen to go to court and I am contacted, does the hospital I traveled to have to represent me etc? (this can be a whole single response just focusing on this aspect thanks)
Also last thing. I was black balled from a hospital that I mistakenly told in the past, that I was fired from another job.(never worked at that hospital I told this to)
Should I NOT list this as a hospital I am interested to work in ? (for travel or per diem) I want to think the hospital would be quick to tell the travel agency I am DNS/DNR/DNU because of this. Just want an opinion.
Can also email me personally anything on here
