Hello, does anyone have any input on Nashville General Hospital... I've seen a lot of post regarding Vanderbilt but I may take an assignment at NGH... I heard it's rough?
Where are some decent location for housing? Should I be worried? Maybe regarding patient population, crime, safety etc?

i would like an answer to the low tax rate too.. i was worried about it but my recruiter told me not to worry? but i havent talked to an accountant about it and i dont have a accountant familiar with travel nursing..? i like the idea of low tax and high non tax, but will i get in trouble? irs doesnt know what your profession is right? i plan on doing travel nursing for a year or two and dont have crazy expenses so i guess im not worried about stuff like purchasing a new home or something...
thanks for the help!

I am looking to travel to Austin, TX (if the right opportunity comes along)! I have been a nurse a little less than 3years on a med-surg/psych unit. And I get similar patients as the other nurse... Have you been looking for housing? I have a dog I am trying to take with me but I'm scared it's going To be hard to find housing.
I am new to travel nursing and am currently talking to one agency- they have a position/location I am interested in. I understand that pay differs with location and speciality. I am looking into a position in Austin, TX on a med-surg/tele unit. I have been a nurse almost three years.
I had a question regarding pay and incentives...
This is what the agency offered me:
"The pay is $29.00hr, plus free housing or the housing stipend of $2,450.00 per month.The taxable base rate is $20.00hr, plus you get $245.00 for meals, that is not taxed as long as I claim a permanent residence." And that's how $29/hr comes out.
Is that a good deal or am I getting a poor offer? I am currently getting a little over $29 now.. It seems as though I am losing money.
This is a 13 week contract.
Any help would be very helpful... I never knew how complex this could be
I am scheduled to have a shadow day at KKI... I was wondering if anyone has been to one and what I should expect. I am planning on dressing business/casual, maybe bring a folder with paper... any other suggestions/recommendations?
I'm not too familiar with KKI and their units... any pointers?
I was wondering what would be better to get:
I need to get 2 reference books (Drug and Diagnostic/Lab) would it be better to get a CD copy of the the book or the actual hard-copy of the book. Its about 1,000 pages and I was also wondering if I would be carrying it around...
I was wondering what is the best way to set up your schedule. Currently I have Wed, Fri, Sat and Sun "free" and packed all the other classes/lab Mon, Tues and Thurs. Would it be better to spread all my classes out to I would only have 1-2 class a day? I have decent breaks inbetween the classes tho.
Thanks for the help =)
