    Which travel company should I apply to for Tampa?

    they dump on the seasonals. don't work for the tele floors witt3 or witt 4. the ortho floor gets 7 patients at night and 6 on days.if they don't have enough patients to staff that the seasonal nurse is sent home. they are allowed to cancel you at lease once ever two weeks but that happens a lot in the summer

    bay care does seasonal work. they have several hospitals in that area. they set you up in housing and wages are good. don't work for morton plant though. good luck

    Texas Hospitals

    I was a staff nurse for 2 years in texas and i can attest to some of the complaints. However, not all the hospitals are like that. the HCA are notorious for mistreatment and low pay is also common in small cities and towns. I worked for baylor and texas health resource hospitals in dallas and they were pretty decent.

    First travel gig!

    Its ok to be nervous. I researched from 1year before i decided to jump on the travel wagon. Your never going to feel fully confident in ALL your skills but thats what makes traveling awesome. You become confident as you are put into uncomfortable situations. When I can't get an IV i call someone else, simple as that. Always remember its all about the patient. Talk to a few recruiters and pick the ones you are comfortable with. Maybe take an assignment close to home so you are not home sick. Good luck

    Advice on traveling?

    Awww sorry that you had that experience for a first time traveler, it must be discouraging but it gets better. Do more research on the hospitals you are going to, make sure you get other travelers feedback from it. Lay out your demands before you sign a contract with any agencies. At least you were not penalized for ending it early but most agencies wont let that happen. good luck.

    Baycare is a good hospital system it has several hospital outside of tampa area. stay away from Morton plant. the housing is spectacular (water front).

    All new, and afraid to get up and go!

    Get up and go for it. best thing I did. My first assignment was close to home then the next on was 1500miles from home. I wanted to travel to California so badly but I ended up in las vegas. Spend some time in this website and research hospitals and agencies that way you know what questions to ask. good luck.

    Is This Common?

    Some agencies are still requiring to speak to references. I know its stupid but get written references just in case.
