    The COVID 19 Battle Cry for Retired Nurses

    If you want just a regular travel job, try Providence Health Staffing they are out of NC, amazing kind recruiter Leslie Bryan I've used them years when I need a recruiter company, but if your looking for fast money I posted below, but you work 21days straight, and hit the floor running . So both those companies will hire you, I head out Monday for NY for my 21days straight... Good luck..

    Crises Pay

    I went to a site called Furnished Quarters, put in the area and price range I could afford, a lady named ------------- called back saying to ignore the prices they were giving discounts to first responders which nurses are considered, she sent 3 apt. in the location I need, but now I'm trying to figure out the train system, I feel really stupid like I need someone for the first 3 times to walk with me through this, I thought it would be like catching a plane but OMG no it's not and then it flips at night,I kept visualizing myself late for work cuz I got on wrong train going wrong way, so either Lyft, Uber or Taxi, There's also a site called:Spare Room but it's shared housing. but its worth looking at. ps

    Crises Pay

    I am a travel nurse between contracts, thought I'd jump on some of this Crises pay, but be aware That some of the large cities housing is impossible to find but if you happen to find it, it is higher than your pay, so I've been asking who is responding to NY the answer I'm getting is Nurses who live there or who know someone to stay with, The Cheapest I found a twin bed Only in someone's attic they wanted 1800/wk. I'd share the rest of the house with a family. I spent 18hrs. looking for housing on Long Island,Manhattan and San Fran's mission district. so I declined the jobs. I really felt I wasn't doing my part with this Crises due to I couldn't find housing, One nurse told me people didn't want to rent to her because she worked around this Virus and would bring it home.

    16hr shifts

    In our small town on the coast of Alaska the price of gas is already 5/gal. and due to the shortage of nurses I would think I could get 16hr.shifts but I cant get anyone to comment to them I have been in nurses 26yrs and understand the dangers of those long shifts, but I have to drive two hrs one way just to get to work over mountain passes, and I have a young son I cannot leave three days a week, due to school and I dont want to take the chance of getting burned out with the drive. Not sure what to do except not work.?
