COVID Vaccine Nurse for New Grad Position

Published

Hello! 

So I am a new BSN graduate (graduated in August). I have been offered a position via a staffing agency for very high pay for administering vaccinations around different areas in the state. My concern is that the staffing company is a third party (I.e., a staffing company hired by a staffing company contracted by the state if that makes sense) and that the process was almost too good to be true. I applied for vaccinator positions about a month or two ago and I just got called by a recruiter today and they simply sent over the hire information (pay rate, contract, policies/procedures, w-4, reference form, CPR/license # proof of vax form, direct deposit form for me to fill out) and told me to go to a paid orientation this Friday.

 

Is this customary for a position such as this one via a staffing agency? Is this common because of the state of the pandemic? I am just generally apprehensive because the whole process was very easy and this would be my first job out of school. 

 

Any answers would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much.

Sounds pretty typical for an agency to me.
