  1. I'm looking for a travel company with contracts in The Woodlands or Conroe Tx area. Also, any help on the hospitals in that area would be appreciated. My main focus is ER, but I have worked a good bit of ICU as well. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. I'm currently looking for travel assignments in or around Dallas Texas; specifically in cath lab. Does anyone have have any info on companies, pay rates, housing, hosptials etc. I've been offered a spot at Parkland in the cath lab, but don't know anything about the job yet. Anyone traveled to a cath lab around Dallas. Any help would be appreciated.

    Well... either its great and noone wants the word out or there isn't much to be had. Can anyone confirm one way or the other?
  4. How is the agency work in and around Little Rock for ICU nurses? What is the pay? Are there any travel contracts in the area? If so, what companies have contracts?

    Overtime pay for 12 hour shifts in CA?

    I'm not saying all travel companies are out to screw you!! I traveled for 4 years full time and had a wonderful experience. There are agencies out there paying 10 dollars less an hour to do the same job at the same hospital. If you don't do your research then you can and will get screwed, but then I guess it would be your fault. I don't get excited about working the exact same job as someone else and get paid less. All I'm saying is ask questions. Many nurses have gotten to an assignment and realized they are not getting what they were promised. ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WERE PROMISED IN WRITING. If the company is billing for time and a half after 8 hours and not paying you that rate then yes they are SCREWING you. Supply and demand; it's simple. I'm not going to go buy a new car from a dealership and pay 5 thousand dollars more for the same car i can get cheaper down the street. Most people who travel with companies paying less and not giving them their OT money only do so because they don't know any better. Many times on travel assignments my travel coworkers switched agencies once they learned how little they were getting paid. I've had an excellent experience with On Assignment, Fastaff, and Supplemental. But there are other companies who had the exact same contracts each place I went paying much less. I wasn't in traveling to have some company hold my hand and tell me how nice the scenery is where I was on contract. Work Less, Make More and take time off for vacation.

    Overtime pay for 12 hour shifts in CA?

    Get this in writing before you go on your assignment. Some companies will not pay time and a half over 8 hours in Ca. They get away with it by not having an office in CA. If it is an out of state agency they can and will screw you.
  7. I'm wondering what the pay rates are around NE Tennessee for experienced nurses? Johnson City, Bristol, and Kingsport. I have 6 years Trauma ICU experience and am curious if the pay will be comperable to hospitals in Texas. My base pay in the Dallas area is 26 dollars an hour with experience then shift diffs on top of that. Any information about the hospitals in that area would be helpful as well. Thanks in advance for the help.
