I will be moving to Kodiak or Anchorage in April '16, (hubs has a job in kodiak) am currently a travel nurse and have heard that a travel nurse is better off doing an independent contract (which I know nothing about!) vs working with an agency if traveling to AK because as a staff nurse in AK you will make better than a traveler. is this true?
Has anyone travel worked as an RN in AK and then became permanent and gotten paid the same or more as permanent?
I JUST WANT TO MAKE THE MOST MONEY! Don't we all?!
I will most likely be working for Providence as they have openings in L&D in Kodiak and Anchorage and that's my experience.
ANY SUGGESTIONS OR HELP OR ANSWERS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
I will be moving to AK permanently but was wondering if doing a couple travel positions would be better money vs applying for permanent positions right away.
