RENO/what travel companies already there?

  1. What travel companies are already sending RN's to Reno, NV?

    I am planning to take my first assignment in Reno in February.

    To save time in filling out applications/skills checklists with various companies, only to find they are not already contracted there, I thought I would try to find out what companies are already there.

    Also any pearls of wisdom regarding your experience in Reno as a traveler? The hospitals, the area itself and how well you liked the experience.

    Thank you

    look on the navada site you will find out that theres only a couple of hospitals to choose from. just about everyone has washoe on their books. it depends on what floor that you go to as to whether its a good placement or not.
    they give you up to 8 patients, and you work hard for your money.
    on assignment have places there, and pay quite well for it.
    reno itself is a lovely place, near lake tahoe which is beautiful.
    have heard that st marys is a better place to work but I dont know who staffs them.

    Thanks for responding....I went to the Nevada site and posted my question and haven't heard from anyone yet. I also did a search on that site to see if they had previously discussed travel companies in Reno -nothing showed up.

    I'm hoping someone out there will respond soon....

    Does anyone know what Travel Companies currently have travelers in RENO?????

    Talemed also has positions there. I once worked with a very nice recruiter from that company who wanted to send me to Washoe. But I declined the position because I didn't like certain things I had heard about that hospital from other nurses who worked there.
