in about 4 months i will be moving to the chicago area and i'm applying for a illinois rn license. i've been a nurse in florida for about 2 years now with one year of progressive care experience and 9 months of critical care experience. this april will be my one anniversary working as a critical care nurse. i'm thinking about applying with an agency until i get established rather than applying with a local hospital and they are many excellent hospitals in the area. i do not need full-time benefits. however, i would like to get as much critical care experience as possible since i eventually plan on pursuing a career in crna. i would really appreciate any feedback on the pro's and con's to applying with an agency and recommendations on a particular agency that could meet my needs would be helpful as well. also, am i making the right move?

I bet you have a good chance of finding ICU contract, beware of LTAC -- that's where an agency may try to put you at first.
