    How Can I Transition To ICU Nurse?

    Hello! I am currently an agency RN with 10 year experience in med-Surg/tele nursing. I have worked as a travel/agency nurse for the majority of my career. I really want to move to the ICU and I am wondering if anyone has any advise as to how to start? I know I will have to take on a staff position but will they be willing to hire and train an RN with no ICU experience? Will I most likely have to enroll in a critical care program and have a preceptor for a few months? Please share your experience if you can!

    Is This Legal?

    I have been working for an agency in Virginia Beach for almost a year now, I won't say their name but it rhymes with Taxim. I have been working per diem at a few different hospitals but recently started sticking to just one hospital. I have had no problem working overtime with this hospital until recently when they changed their rules and can no longer offer Per Diem nurses overtime. I figured "no big deal I will just get my overtime in at another hospital". Well my agency just told me they can pay me overtime if I split my hours between two hospitals because they can't bill either hospital for my overtime. I understand where they are coming from but I am still their employee on their payroll and I believe it is illegal to not compensate me for overtime regardless of where I do my hours. I know my agency makes a pretty penny on me for every hour I work and they can easily afford to make up my overtime pay. Is what they are doing legal? I don't know how to approach them about this. Is my state different in their overtime law because it is a commonwealth? Please any advise would be very helpful!
