Hey all, hope you are all staying safe during this insanity. I was wondering if anybody has started to see crisis/high rate jobs posted yet? If so, post the specialty and company.

I am wondering the same. I haven only seen one ad for Oregon, a company I have never heard of called ALC staffing which has a one-star review on Google and no other web presence besides a shoddy website.

Would love to hear which REPUTABLE agencies are staffing Pacific Northwest area.

$4,420/week for 13 weeks just posted for NJ. Man I wish I could take it so bad. If these type of assignments were typical, I would quit my staff job yesterday.

NJ is taking compact nurses even though they haven't officially enacted the NLC, per Fastaff at least. FYI in case anyone is considering it.

I don't know if we can post company info but there is AYA Healthcare staffing. Our hospital uses them and they don't seem to be a fly by night organization.

WOW! seems a little unfair considering the staff nurses that have already been beat down by this crisis. Understanding the need to have relief available and that travel nurses get paid more on a regular, but this seems like more that your average pay difference.
