    cgwrn, i was told the same thing by my agency about being a first timer. right now, we are on a waiting game because the facility wants me to charge and float. meanwhile they are offering 20/hr with stipend and no holiday pay. i told her to call me back when she has a better offer. there are other agencies.

    LPN for 3 years. I was making $18 an hour with no benefits in FL working part-time in an LTC.

    Decided to move back to Canada almost a year ago. I'm now in a union working in medical rehab. I make $24.68 an hour plus $2.75 shift dif for eves and $3.25 shift dif for wknds. I also have full benefits that cost me about $28 a month with no out of pocket expenses. I have a regular part-time line on which I earn vacation time and sick time. The only time I have more than 7 patients is when we're short-staffed.

    HEY GUYS!!
    I'm 27, female black travel nurse who has been to Cali and Texas. My big thing is go where your heart takes you! I've worked in the bay area loved it!! And San Diego area the hospital sucked, but the friends I made there will last a lifetime!! I personally like to go where I see other black ppl. I'm in Houston now and love it!!! I have been here since May and have never worked with this many black ppl in the medical field!!! It is very welcoming!!! My next assignment starts in Jan in Tampa, FL!! I'm very excited because one day i can see myself living there!! In my experiences being a young black nurse ppl try to challenge u but i'm ALWAYS up for a challenge!! Travel nursing is very rewarding!!!
