    Any Advice for a New Agency RN?

    Hi :) It is my first time too with agency and I guess I am nervous just because I don't know what I am getting into and thats why I made this post in case anyone that is more experienced at agency could give some people who are new some tips to keep us in line haha :) I am trying to get per diem work also so that I can stay home with my new baby more and be more flexible. I am from Louisiana in the Lafayette/ Lake Charles area. I hope to work in different areas and getting a taste of different areas.

    Any Advice for a New Agency RN?

    I am an RN and I am starting agency work this month, Is there any experienced agency RNs or staff that could give me some advice before I start that could keep me out of trouble in the long run? (I am not expecting to be in any trouble but I just would like some pointers to remember when working, Thanks :) )
  3. I am currently applying for several agencies in my area. One agency that I applyed for told me I could only work in dialysis because that is what I have been doing for the last 2 years. I have past experience in C.C.U., Rehab, and Outpatient Hemodialysis and they are not considering my other experience because I have been at dialysis for the last 2.5 years. I am currently employed at the dialysis center and I am trying to get out of this work because I work 4-5 days a week and I dont like the hours. I would rather work 2 night shifts a week at a hospital and get out of dialysis. I just had a baby and I'm trying to change jobs for this reason, to be home more with my baby. My question is do all agencies only let you work in the one area that you specialize in or do they let you work in areas that you don't have any experience in? I am eager to work in other areas where I can work in the hospital again.
