    Ok Travel Nursing sounds like a pretty nice way to go, but I have a couple questions. Can you pick your location and the unit you want to work on ex.(Cardiac Rehab, ICU, or CCU)? Also, how can you find out if your license is approved in another state, will they tell you if it is or not?
    If you are in a compact state, and your license says that it is a compact license, and you are taking a travel asignment in a compact state, then you are all set. For all others, you will need to apply for endorsement to the state where you wish to take an assignment.

    You can pick the city and state, and even facility. It depends on what the needs of a particular hospital at the time. They do not always have every area available.

    What company are you using? And where was that assingment? I'm getting 2,600 every two weeks but have to pay for my own apt and that's in NYC. PM me with more info if you wouldn't mind.
    You also have to pay for your apt on that rate? Not a good thing.
    Most pay for me is 1300 weekly or there abouts thats 48 hour week... apt paid.. rental car.. utilities paid.. etc

    THe most I ever got before taxes was $4128, that was working an 84 hour week. I try to do that once or twice each assignment! I allways contract for 48 hours a week, and will work OT when I feel like it.

    I am orientating in OR and like it so far. I am a new RN and reside in a compact state. Does anyone know about the need for OR travel nurses? Are they in as much demand as say a ICU or ER RN? I want to travel but don't want to get the wrong experience.
