  1. Hi there! Long story short: I graduated in April 2000, I want to accept a 13 week (or so) contract in Texas or Florida or somewhere and make A LOT of cash. I have heard of people doing this and try as I might, I have not been able to find out specifics. I DO NOT want to work through a Travel Nurse Company, so please don't write to me if you are a Travel Nurse Company Recruiter. I am able to go with minimal notice. I just want a good experience and nice pay. I know these opportunities are out there, I just can't find 'em!

    What makes a flight nurse different?

    Darien, I've been trying to find out what the heck a flight nurse IS?!?! I tried to go to that specific post, but for some reason, I couldn't load it, thus couldn't read it. I'm a BScN student as well (in my last month WHOO HOO!!!!) and am currently looking at my options. Write back when you get a chance! Thanks!
  4. Hi there! This is a kajillion statements/questions in one! I am 2 months away from graduating from a BN program in Canada. I have the travel bug and would very much love to move somewhere warm where I can scuba dive on my days off. What is the deal with hiring new grads? Some companies say that we should work a year as an RN before they will consider us, while others say they will take me regardless. I have been working as an UnderGraduate Nurse carrying out all tasks on General Surgery, Trauma and OR Units. In January, I was hired as an UnderGraduate nurse to fill an ORT line. The reason is so that the institution can train me as an OR Nurse and will certify me after I graduate. Normally, a new grad will have to take the Post Grad OR Course, but I was granted this special permission to start early as there was a need for OR nurses and I had just completed my clinical practicum in this area. So in that long winded way, I am saying that I have the experience and I have a certain comfort level. I am wanting to work as a travel nurse where ever the wind carries me. I want to go sooner than later and I'm wondering how possible this really is. I am also wondering if I go as an OR nurse, will I be scrubbing? Or will I be primarily a circulating nurse. I have travel nurse friends who were only allowed to circulate, as in many states, OR Techs do the scrubbing.
