    AGACNP preceptors in Houston

    Good morning, I’m a AGACNP student enrolled in UTA. I’m to begin clinicals February 2021 and desperately in search of leads. I need 180 hours and it could be an NP,PA or MD. If you have pass me some suggestions, I’d greatly appreciate it!

    Never again with Cross Country TravCorps

    They've already given me a bad eval. How does it get worse? I don't see it.

    NedRN, I'm not mad at what you're saying, I totally agree. I just want to clear my name and potentially prevent this from happening to another traveler WHILE I work with my other agencies on getting another job.

    Never again with Cross Country TravCorps

    I thought I stated several times I'm working with other agencies...I still am nothing has changed. I am working on closing this Cross Country thing while at the same time pursuing opportunities with my other agencies. Raindrop, the eval the mgr submitted was an eval from the charge nurses per the clinical liaison. They made false statements to retaliate against me since I've complained about them to the nurse mgr. Oh and I will be following up with the DON at Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital yes.

    So after requesting I'd be contacted today, it's 3:30 pm and no one has contacted me. I called the clinical liaison who tells me the floor mgr won't retract her eval (and claims that this eval was from the charge nurses (who I have complained about yo the mgr by email) and that they addressed their concerns with me but have no proof of emails sent or signed write ups that I've received). So they have no proof supporting their claims and Cross Country has participated in this slander and defamation by forwarding a negative eval that was unfounded to other facilities. I just got off the phone with one of the Directors. She will "research" this situation and get back to me.

    The thing is, as I stated before, I NEVER put my eggs in one basket but I will pursue this because it's not just an issue that has cost me future money (as I would have accepted the position that was offered me) but my reputation as a nurse is on the line. My reputation personally and professionally means everything to me so I won't take this lightly. The thing I don't understand is why they would send an eval that I was adamant was untrue without concluding their research or at least getting a statement from me to attach to the eval they sent until they conclude their investigation. I already had 3 other companies I was working with (1 of which my recruiter tried to get in trouble a few weeks ago) and I will never use this company again. I just want my name cleared and I want disciplinary action to follow.

    Right? That's what I said and thought!!! I think she was being spiteful because she thought I accepted the job without consulting which I never did, but could do if I wanted to. In addition, we had an issue recently where I had to politely remind her that I work with other agencies so I'd never be hung up on Cross Country.
  9. I will never work with this agency again. Wow this is a long story but I'll try to summarize quickly. I just completed an assignment at DHMC. I will preface this by saying, I have worked as a staff nurse and agency nurse before but this was my first travel assignment and I have never received poor ratings regarding my nursing care...EVER. While at this assignment, I was asked four times to extend my contract, to which I politely declined. My manager just asked me last week to renew again and when I declined she says, "Never forget us here, maybe come back in the summer." So fast forward a week. My recruiter emails me that I received a "below standard eval". I ended up talking with Cross Country's clinical liaison arguing against what was written about me. The manager lied!! The liaison said he will get with manager to discuss the points I brought up. This occurred at 2pm. I received a phone call from my recruiter at 445pm to "update on what's happened in the past 2 hours". (I recently interviewed for a Pediatric position and was offered the job, I was just waiting to interview with the other hospitals that called me). My recruiter tells me that she's required to send any eval to any job I've been submitted for so she sent this eval to the hospital that offered me the job and they retracted the job offer. I asked her why she would do that when the liaison was currently doing research to validate or refute the eval comments that were made. She said, "It's my job to send that eval." My issue is, as your recruit your job is to advocate on my behalf. She has never heard a negative eval of me from any of my jobs. So you would think she would call me prior to sending that eval. In addition, why not get a rebuttal statement from me to attach to that eval or wait until the clinical liaison concluded his research? But she prematurely sent that eval. There were selfish reasons behind it. I will be following up with the Director of the company on Monday. I have had several issues with this recruiter. She is not a nurse nor has ever been so at times, she does not understand things I tell her or things I require from a job opportunity because she's always had an office job. She is incompetent. And she forgets that taking a job away from me, loses money for Cross Country and takes away from her funds. Once this is cleared up, I will no longer work with this company and most especially this recruiter. And you'd be wise to do the same.
  10. To me, your best bet is to get in contact with an actual manager. They are easier to talk to about positions than HR. Both times I have worked for S&W, I contacted the mgr first then HR caught up after I was offered the position. On the med surg floor, you will get at least 5 patients, many times 6, sometimes up to 7. I worked on an adult med surg floor for a year (left in july) and we at times had no aide, or one aide for 37 rooms with 6 patients a piece. Think wisely before making a decision. Not saying S&W is a bad employer, you just have to be careful, with any employer and their promises.

    I am also taking Research and Vulnerable Populations at the same time (right now) and I am doing well with my Research class although I hate research and I am not doing well in the Vulnerable Populations course. They require you to do a lot of work and the assignment takes sooooo long. The quizzes are stupid and have nothing to do with what you're actually reading. I have not been nervous about any other course during this program except this Vulnerable Populations class. I don't know what to do to do well.

    UTA RN to BSN while working 40hrs /week?

    Thank you @iLOVEbees for your quick response. Do you think the community book is needed or do you think a person can rely on the notes and lectures and make a good grade? Thanks again I'm taking Research and Vulnerable Populations together starting this week...scared.
