    MGA assigned a child to me that didn't really need skilled nursing. When that assignment came to an end THEY WOULDN'T PLACE ME because I really had not been doing any real nursing and even they questioned my skills. I have since moved on to a very rewarding position elsewhere. This was their patient they approved for DDD.

    I have a funny story about MGA. I was hired about 7 months ago by them and they already had a couple of cases for me. I was very excited because this would've been my very first nursing job as a LPN. I went to do my drug screen, but I was more dehydrated than I thought. I didn't offer enough of a sample, so I had to wait a few more minutes and drink a lot more water to get things going. I was also under a lot of pressure to get the sample done before they closed, which was in 15 minutes at the time. I did my sample, but it still wasn't enough. The lab tech that was with me laughed it off and assured me that it happens frequently and not to worry, but I had to get another drug screen form from MGA. I called MGA and explained the situation to them. They simply chose to not to believe me and said I would be notified at a later time when they got the official report from the lab center I went to. The lab center did send the report a few days later, and I called again to get the drug screen forms, but I was put on hold for a very long time. I finally gave up on them and resumed sending out applications/resumes again. I'm wondering if I should call them and ask if they ever looked at the official report from the lab center and see if they would hire me again?

    thread being closed for potential legal and ethical ramifications.

    per the terms of service:

    no potentially libelous information about specific schools, instructors, or health care facilities/entities should be posted in these forums. while it is important to be able to network, everyone should be mindful of the following:
    1. it is a small world - when we narrow it down to a state and throw in some personal info, there is actually a pretty good chance someone may recognize you if you are not careful. your privacy is paramount to us.
    2. while this site is a wonderful place to vent (without excess personally identifiable details) it is not the place to express why ("x" specific person, place or program) is terrible. gripe away, but since we cannot permit allegations to be made about named entities, your care in not naming them is very much appreciated.

    thank you.
