    Low acuity patients when traveling

    I have found this to be true as well being a traveler working in the ED. I usually work trauma centers, I have TNCC and ATCN as well certified with doing EJ's, art and fem sticks. I am also Triage First trained as well and I do SANE. The trauma cen...

    Any young african american travel nurses?

    I drove my car from Missouri to California ALONE and it took me 2 1/2 days. You will need a car, especially if you are going to be in Southern Ca, like LA. I leave my car in storage in California when I fly back home to Missouri. I still have m...

    Hi all

    I just got scammed on Craigslist so be careful. I've used Craigslist in the past without a problem, but it's a first time for everything. Some travelers at my current assignment told me about travelershaven. I have been in contact with them for ...

    I just did a 13 week assignment in Fresno CA at Community Regional. Don't know if that's where you will be or not. I rented a two bedroom furnished condo in the Riverpark Area. Found it on Craigslist. Paid 1300/month all inclusive. Was in a grea...

    I will be taking my third travel assignment in LA, my third one in California. Found really affordable housing for LA on Craigslist. Not a room, nor roommates. I will be there mid-January.

    Pushy Recruiter

    UPDATE: I called this recruiter first thing on Monday morning. At first I got his voicemail. I left a message and he called me back almost immediately after I hung up from leaving the voicemail. I told him to not further submit me for any job...

    Pushy Recruiter

    My question was if I should go ahead with the interview. I've told this recruiter that I didnt want to interview since I will not be going out into January. And his response was "you can discuss that during the interview". After I made this post,...

    Pushy Recruiter

    Hello all! I am an experienced travel nurse and I'm signed up with two agencies. On the advice on another traveler, I decided to sign up for a third agency. From the get go, I felt this recruiter and I just did not "click". I was very direct ...
  11. I just did something like this myself in my last assignment. I'm an ED nurse and I took an assignment that paid very well, but I hated it! In my opinion, it wasn't ED nursing, especially what I was used to. So, I stuck it out for the entire contra...

    Quad city travelers

    It may be more than you wanted to spend, but you can't put a price on peace of mind. I know it's important to me to have my own space, so I may spend more than the average traveler with my housing, but it's so worth it to me to not have to deal wi...

    Quad city travelers

    I've had good success with finding housing on Craig's List. I'm currently on assignment in CA and found a 2 bedroom condo on Craig's list fully furnished. I don't rent rooms, I don't room share, nor do roommates, so it was important that I found so...
