    Hi, Tamcan! I have heard very positive things about this agency. Great housing. I can't speak from personal experience, although I have had them put me on their "tickler" file for when I finish up my current contract.

    They do only search for your contract only 4 weeks out from the start date; I can't remember why, but it's something to think about. I typically start looking for an assignment 8 weeks in advance, esp. if I'm going to a state in which I have to procure license (which can be a timely process).

    Hope others can speak to them, as I'd like first hand feedback, too.

    I wouldn't travel with them for love or money. I found them to be very dishonest.

    IdahoNurse: I am interested to know why you were dissatisfied with this particular agency. If you don't wish to give specifics, I understand, but I always like to hear "the rest of the story" when someone makes a positive or negative comment. Forewarned is forearmed, after all! Thanks!

    The made a terrible mistake, wouldn't admit to the mistake, wouldn't discuss it, and took FOREVER to correct it... only when I threatened them with criminal prosecution.

    I'm on my third consecutive assignment with them. It hasn't been great but it hasn't been all bad either. Housing is nice and close to my assignment and its gated which is a huge plus in a large city. Paychecks have allways been on time. Had one day I didn't get paid for (It was during the holidays) but I caught it and contacted my recruiter and it was reflected on my next paycheck. I allways check my timesheets with my pay and I advise you to do the same. Never trust someone else with your money!!! Insurance has been a bit of a pain in the butt. They are changing insurance companies to Great West Healthcare. All in all I would probably reccomend this agency but do look around and register with several companies and pick the one you feel most comfortable with. I am going to Florida when my current assignment ends in May and even though I will let Nightingale look for me a job there, they will not be the only ones looking for me. Hope this helps.
