Does any one have info on Catalanos? I am considering signing up with them and I was wondering if anyone could tell me of their experiences with this agency. I'm an LPN with 2 years of experience and I want to go back to school in the fall and I know that an agency would be great for me at this time. Your comments will be greatly appreciated. God Bless!

You may get a better response by posting about them in the state where you are going to be working. There is no mention of that here so it makes it hard for anyone to tell you anything.
You may also want to check out Per Diem jobs at facilities near you. That also gives you flexible scheduling that is great for when you are in school. And in many areas, the pay is the same as agency.

Also another thing to think about. Since you called it "Registry" -- are you going to be doing preivate duty for them, or staff relief? If private duty, registries were just that a listing of nurses...the patient's family paid you directly, and therefore you were responsible for all of the taxes from it, not any part paid by the employer. Make sure that you find out all of this exactly.

Catalanos is in S. Fl. and yes, they have excellent job opportunities especially with private duty. A friend of mine makes $41.50/hr working with a patient who needs an ICU Nurse. The Agency has been around over 20 years. I worked for them in the late 1970's when I was a LPN.
