I've had it with making the minimum for what I do. I asked an agency nurse working for us about specifics and got a packet sent to me from her company. I really think I want to do this, but worry about leaving my job. I have about 15 months med/surg experience. All I want is to work two or three 8 hour shifts/week. Now I work two 12 hour shift and eow. I hate working weekends and holidays as I have three kids. I'm working on getting my BSN and am so busy, the thought of telling someone else when I will work sounds like paradise. Now I get a schedule and they tell me when to show up and then on my days off, they call me constantly to work extra. What is it like to work agency for you? I know I can handle working on a floor like my current floor, but I need to know more. Are you treated okay? Do you get assignments beyond what you are capable of? If you need help, is someone there to ask or are you expected to know everything? Thanks for your help!!
