How do I say "no" to agency?

I'm a new grad who got my license in Aug 2016. I applied with an agency that helps find positions for RNs at LTC facilities. After being in talks with them for weeks, I haven't had any job interviews. I took some time to think about where I really want to work and I'm not sure if I would like to work at a LTC facility as a new grad with no experience. The nurse-patient ratios are 1:40 with short orientation periods. I wouldn't feel safe working there. How do I go about saying that I don't want help from the agency anymore? Preferably in a more polite manner.

Go about your business. If they contact you again just say you are no longer interested, or already have a full time job, or whatever. If they don't have you already situated they aren't doing you much good anyway.

"I no longer need the agency's services at this time. Thank you for all of your help. I will keep the agency in mind should my needs change in the future."

No further explanation is needed, especially if you send them this by e-mail. Though it's up to you regarding how blunt and how honest you want to be with the agency about the reasons why.
