Do you recommend agency nursing for nurses going back into the field?

Thinking of agency nursing and I have done this in the past, but working part time (very little) thinking of working more hours to keep up my skills. Do you think this would be harder or easier for nurses who are wanting more hours?

If the agency is JCAHO accredited, they will send you only to places where you have recent experience.  By "recent" they mean within the past year.

The pros are that you could pick up shifts when it would suit you to do so.  The cons are that they can cancel you at the last minute, when you were counting on that shift.

Your best bet would be to contact some of the agencies in your area and talk to them.
