    Transitioning from full time nurse to travel nurse

    List yourself with a few companies maybe 4. Check to see how many companies are under the same parent company. That will save you from duplicate forms to fill out. If your Nursing license is in a compact state, you have 24 states to job hunt in. Your license will be verified online. Start looking now so you don't get caught without a job!

    Best Agencies in Houston, TX

    Maybe a cheap package offering....Epic is the best out there now, in my opinion.

    Is it time to leave Arizona?

    Worked a contract in Tucson last summer and loved it. Hot, Hot and Hot, love every minute of it and will go back in a heart beat. Years ago I worked in Phoenix, but not the small town atmosphere as Tucson. Tucson is spread out, easy to navigate, friendly people and many "things" to do. Don't hesitate to go there and experience many wonderful nature offerings, they are plentiful.

    Sidney MT

    Anyone looking at contract positions in Sidney MT? Let uk know about how things are there and where one has to live. Seems like there would be an increase in health care workers needed there.

    Cross Country??

    Remember the travel allowances are the same they were 10 years ago. Gas and motels aren't. Experience is needed before traveling, yes new ways are picked up too.

    Cross Country??

    talk with nurses that have workend in NY recently where you want to work. So much red tape to jump through, commute is a hastle and time involved. Car parking then storage, cost of living and all the other travel cost. Pay is not going up, neither is the travel pay from one location to another, still the same for many years. Companies are going to have to get with the program and quit hoarding the revenue for themselves. Permantent jobs are looking better all the time. secure retirement and benefits that we don't really have. If we can't get assignments before the end of a contract our benies are out the window!! I'm sure there are other sites one can veiw what is going on in the travel bus.

    RV's anyone???

    I love to travel, however it is time to re think this issue with the increase in gas prices and the lower pay RN's are getting as travel nurses. Travel pay has not increased as I have done this for a number of years. My RV sits idle as it is too expensive to travel with it.One car per year due to the many miles is a real killer. My husband's hrly wage is higher than mine, better benefits and has a much bigger input in his schedule as an RN. What is wrong with this pic?

    Getting overpaid. Should I tell payroll?

    Honesty is the best policy. If you didn't earn it, it is not yours. Run to them and tell them NOW???

    Traveling Telephone Nursing Positions

    Will you share how I may do this? I am very excited about an opportunity such as this. I'm NM heading that way, will be in AZ in the am, can't wait. To many this sounds insane, as they do not see the beauty AZ holds. the HOT days and cool nights, beautiful sunrises and sunsets are all back to nature and the very core of life to me. Thanks for the infor, Cay

    Why is Epic better than Cerner?

    Cerner charting/Example for discharge find PM Conversation on top of page with other information. Why not Discharge Conversation. There are multiple sites one must go to to do a D/C, not just one. Charting unit specific, one must hunt for various places to chart, hope one can figure out where they all are. Hope this makes some sense. I'm sure there are different packages hospitals may purchase, just like what ya want in a car? Classes needed to provide adequate training for nurses and others before going live is welcomed before going live with any program. Site navigation is difficult as there are so many ways to do one thing, this confuses me, don't know about the rest of the people.

    Just a reminder...you need 1 to 2 years current experience in the field you want to work in as a traveler! Hope you researched that before selling the baby and bath water?
