Took company housing in an apt complex where they housed all the other travelers. Made some great friends. The work was hard and it was tough to remember that I was just a visitor, and to try to change things.

Everything was going well, or so I thought, then six weeks into my assignment my contract was abruptly cancelled due to a clinical issue. No supervisor or manager ever approached me personally to discuss the matter. It was done solely through the agency. I felt I did not have a chance to thoroughly give my side of the story. Two days after my dismissal, per my request, the unit manager contacts me and tells me they have a "zero tolerance" policy for travelers regarding certain issues. I just wish it was handled differently, in a face to face manner. It would have saved me such heartache. You live and learn that life goes on. Fortunately I obtained a new contract elsewhere the next day!

Examine your contract carefully. If it isn't written down, it's not real, and it most likely will not happen. Always make sure you have money to get out if you go someplace isolated. Hospitals cancel contracts due to census all the time.

First it was at Riverside Methodist Hosp in Columbus OH. Had planned on traveling with a friend and they said we had to take testing to work there and not to worry everybody passed it. Turned out she didn't so I was stuck by myself in Columbus. Huge hospital and under construction to boot. got lost more than once and had to show up for work 15 min early just to get to the 7th floor and clock in on time as parking was not near enough to the hosp to not get soaked in the rain, sunburned and sweaty in the heat and frostbitten in the winter. all in all the hosp was a great experience and I have stories from all the hospitals that I am thankful for. every day is a learning experience!

Nasty mid level management. Rude and inappropriate charge nurses at Cedars. Nice staff nurses and Unit manager a delight. Had to fight down to the mat for contact approved time off. Not unusual to be yelled at in the hall or nurses station!!! Really, I'm almost 50 and been a nurse for 28 yrs. All that and I stayed for almost 6 mo. Testament to how impervious to insult I am. There are Way better assignments. Don't do it if you have other choices.

Upside to a place like Cedars is there were tons of travelers. I learned everything from them and made some excellent connections. Remember....when in Rome....do as the Romans. Unless of course it's not best practice.

Be careful of your recruiter- you should have a good repor with them. Do not let your recruiter make you feel stupid for asking questions and DON'T let your recruiter push you into an assignment you are not sure about- go with your gut feeling. I did not do that and I am miserable. After all, it is YOUR license on the line and you are making money for the recruiter and their company!!!! Michele Kluger a recruiter with RN Network has been terrible! She is pushy, condescending, & conniving. She will say things such as "well it's only about money with you" but she does not want to give you the most for your assignment. It's dangerous. After asking for the agency to reimburse for required hospital parking ($150) Michele was shocked I asked and said she "had never had a traveler ask before". I have spoken with multiple other nurses that has had Michele Kluger as a recruiter and like me they state "they will never work with her again" please do not accept something you don't feel comfortable with!! Traveling should be a great experience!!!

I learned early that saying no to your recruiter is okay! That being said, I shopped around for different agencies and had some terrible experiences. I've been happy at Aya Healthcare for a few years now.

Learning to do without some things (piles of shoes, clothes, among other things) really makes traveling easier. You can always buy nice things when you get to your destination.

My first travel assignment was in Miami Florida. My agency did a great job getting me there (aya healthcare), but i absolutely hated the experience. The locals and I just didn't get along. I didn't let that deter me from travel nursing and took another assignment, this time in Los Angeles much better. Aya came through again with a great job and housing

I cannot beleive I stuck it out. I was at a huge Children's Hospital. I drove across country by myself. I did not quite my regular job where I had a leadership role and was very respected. I just wanted to test the water's first. I left my teen daughter and husband for 8 weeks. I worked in my assigned unit 3 times during the entire assignment. I worked a lot of overtime too and I was so burned out by 2 weeks in I was in tears. "I thought you are a big girl, if you don't like this just quite" I was lied to, underpaid and my recruiter quite at that time too. Then I went to the spa, my husband took some vacation time to join me, and I realized I was learning a lot being pulled out of my comfort zone every day. Now it was about me, my patients and not about hospital politics. I went home, sent my daughter to college, my husband and I retired & now we only work to support our travel habit.

Not everybody is cut out for this life style which looks great at first but it is not easy. You have to be very confident in your skills and willing to be adaptable. The changing jobs every 3 to 6 months is maddening and gone are the bonuses and other perks. Also look at your specialty. You don't find a lot of NICUs in rural Montana if that is where you want to go

Avoid Salem Hospital if you are an older Nurse. They are only interested in new grads (bottom of the pay scale, student loans, will work all the overtime, don't use their insurance much). Was part of a three phase of hiring travelers while they oriented 100 new grads. In each phase they ran off the older nurse. Bogus reasons that seem to change with every inquiry. Floated me to 9 different floors that were not in my contract. Didn't complain because I wanted to be close to one of my kids living in the area. Integrated was not helpful.

A little unnerving, not knowing what to expect. I always take the stipend and get my own housing, I found a great little studio. Luckily, the hospital and staff were great. It was strange having to turn in my hours, but you get used to it, and you have to keep up with your own CEU's, BLS, and ACLS. Still, it's worth it.

You have to keep up with your resume. Find out the person, their phone number and their e-mail address to add to your resume. Remember to keep up with the facility, the address.

It was in Toledo. At that time, I thought travel nurses were considered evil by most staff nurses. I also worried that the unit was seriously under staffed because they required a travel nurse. I was wrong on both accounts. The nurses did a great job with the orientation to the dialysis unit. They were very professional and knowledgeable. I learned so much from them. The unit needed some help while they were training new nurses. I was not given the worse assignments nor the least desirable patients. Overall, it was a great experience.

I met a traveler at UNM in Albuquerque and she finally talked me into traveling. I used her company. I wish to God i had known about this Highway Hypodermics before I started out. Michelle the recruiter told me about many reimbursements/housing and really pumped it up. She became very pushy and aggressive. She operated by attacking my anxieties over financial and personal affairs in order to try and manipulate me. The company has taken money from me that does not belong to them. They are cheap and undependable. READ YOUR CONTRACT First. Mine was handled right up to the last 3 days before I started at this hospital I am at now. Thank God it will soon be over

Smile even though you may feel like crying inside. The people that you work with in the hospitals that can not keep adequate staffing are not happy either. Some of them maybe sarcastic and full of themselves. Thats them having to deal with their situation and its not about you. Keep smiling..You get to go home or just move on.

Stay away from HRN nurse agency!!! Agents and Management are very unprofessional, tell you they will call you back and do not, constantly blow off nurses and treat them like they are doing them a favor by answering there phone call, most unprofessional company I have ever worked for, San Jose branch is absolutely terrible as well as the Washington branch, don't waste your time with these crooks, not worth the headache.

Was a do or die situation and needed employment fast. I ended up in Blythe, CA, in the middle of the Mojave in August. It was a small town with great people but the heat was absolutely incredible! The nurses were a great help to me and took me under their wing. I was away from my wife and children and my brains were in danger of melting but I persevered for three months. I made lifelong friends and learned that scorpions glow under a Woods lamp. Trust me on that and don't try it while in the Mojave. Those little suckers are everywhere!!

I accepted a last minute position here to help CC out. On day 1 I was paired with someone who was having a bad day and rather than focus on my training she was on her cell all day and not present. Thus, I had to be my own advocate and followed other folks around. The hospital is new and the staff green and still finding their way in regards to policies, and such. I had more years than all the nurses on my floor combined. They all did things differently. I got 1 day of "orientation" and was expected to work immediately. After my one day I got a call that they terminated my contract. The reason provided was fair communication and the fact that I refused to work OT that very day-I was tired and new. The rep for Cross country was ice cold when I asked her what I could do to keep my reputation clean from this. Not caring at all that I now had a “fire” on my record for one day of work. We are nothing but money for the agencies. I will never try traveling again.

Ask a lot of questions of your recruiter and the facility. Do not be afraid to complain about housing and ask for changes from your company. Check out multiple companies before choosing your company for travel, asking questions about housing , etc and keep notes of your conversations to check against your contract.

My 2nd contract has been more challenging because the average number of deliveries is 4/mo. I was told I may have to "back up MS" but instead I have basically been working MS and have had very little work in OB. I have had 1 vag delivery and 3 c-sections in 13 weeks.

My first experience was very exciting and very stressful. I knew that I was getting into something I had never done before what I was ready for it. I arrived to weekend before I started so i could "explore the city" and my new neighborhood. The hospital was great. 90% of people there I loved but the other 10% i could care less if I ever see them again. The orientation was quick and then I hit the ground running. It was totally worth it.

TellAFirstTimer

I would say make sure things are in writing. If you have a question about something, don't be afraid to ask. If they are discussing things with you before submitting you to a hospital, and you don't like it, SPEAK UP. They can usually get what you are requesting. Also, when I first started I signed up with 3 different companies so i had multiple options. And I still look at other companies now to get me where I wanna go which is NYC. Good luck and you will enjoy it.

This is not for you if your a city person but if you like to fish, kayak, hike and enjoy more wildlife than I've ever seen...even has wild monkeys!! The work was hard, the pay was decent for Florida and the scenery to die for. I would highly recommend for all those travelers with a think skin, willing to work hard and play hard.

Find yourself a really good recruiter. I found one in Brendan Peterman with TruStaff. He was able to walk me through the whole transition step by step with ease. As long as you get your part of the deal done, ie. paperwork, you should also have a seamless crossover. Brendan checks in with me every week and during the holidays, twice a week. He makes sure that there are no mistakes when it comes to my paycheck. I trust this recruiter because he has proven himself to be a hard worker and trustworthy. I am sure that he would love to get a call from you and help you just as much as he has helped me. But I'm not giving him up!!

My first travel experience was with the company I still work for and was the most educational and truly gratifying nursing I had ever experienced. Most nurses seem to find a facility that suits their needs based on proximity to their homes and families, but for me my first travel assignment was like finding my place (my home) in nursing. I enjoyed the challenge of discovering what kind of team was in place and what quality I had that would most benefit my team! That first travel assignment taught me to be selfless in a way that I didn't know I was capable of. That first travel nursing assignment taught me that travel nursing is about being the best you ~ for the sake of everyone you work with and everyone you provide with care.

As I remember being a first time traveler with 2 years of ICU ( Cardiac/Surgical/Trauma) experience I thought knew everything..boy was I wrong. I took my first assignment in the SICU at a University hospital and was very welcome by the hospital staff. In the aspect of learning and education I am very glad I took the risk of moving across country for my first assignment. On the other hand I wish I had not accepted the first assignment with the first company I contacted. I came to this conclusion after speaking with other travelers and finding out that I was making substantially less per hour and did not have great benefits. Of course hindsite is 20/20. My recommendation is to contact several agencies and go with the one that gives you the best salary/benefits and that you have good relationship with your recruiter.

Look for you own housing, check it out ahead of time or use referrals from other travelers. If you can't get a hotel short term then find housing in the area on your days off. It will keep more $$ in your pocket. Plus ask lots of questions of the facility in your interview. You don't want to sign a contract for someplace you wouldn't want to go. Researching ahead of time will save you lots of blood, sweat and tears later.

My first travel experience was a disaster. Arrived on time , checked in with the staff and told to wait, put with a nurse for a couple hours before even getting a badge, then expected to be on own without any knowledge of charting, dept, flow, hospital or procedures. During high flow times when having high acuity patients, charge nurse would come and inform you no entry had been made in a chart on a patient within two hours when for past two hours spent keeping pt alive from bleeding out. Although there was a 1:4 ratio acuity did not factor into this. If a transfer to a facility had to be made the RN did all paperwork, calls for acceptance in addition to caring for all 4 patients full care without assistance for lifting, turning, splints or even taking a patient out by wheelchair along with transporting to floors, phlebotomy etc, only 1 tech in whole dept each shift and no cohesive team work and not well receptive to travelers. Worst experience ever.

Stay one on one with our recruiter and always ask questions. Nursing is the same no matter where you go but policy and procedures will be different at each assignment. The first assignment is the hardest in learning the ropes but a good recruiter will make a world of difference.

Brendan Peterman is a great advocate for finding positions that best meet my needs. He is always available, helpful, and willing to go the extra mile to anticipate what I want, and to be proactive about helping me obtain it. I have had nothing but positive interaction with him as well as the entire Trustaff team.

first travel experience at kaiser. not recommended. its true that they treat travelers like indentured servants. very abusive and threatening. 12 hour shifts and no break until after 9 hours, and then 1/2 hour - if you're lucky. also they float you 3 times in a 12 hour shift. ever hear of that before? me neither. and its all about their documentation, and not the patient. travel nurses hate it but go there for the location. i say find a better hospital and have a good travel experience.

my best advice: do not go to kaiser hospitals.

Getting read to post a review when I saw Jack's comments, and I agree with him - and there's more! Kaiser wants you to do tube feeding after inserting an NG tube with no xray to confirm placement - its not in their policy to do an xray!! Also, suctioning trachs: they keep their thumb on the suction all the way up the trach - no press and release...its more fun for them to risk harming a patient? Travelers are like indentured servants - getting yelled at by management in patient rooms in front of patients and families, sometimes no break at all. Seems to me this breaks California law - but Kaiser doesn't care!! Several travelers had their contracts cancelled for no reason except that catty women at kaiser decided they felt threatened. People unhappy with their jobs. Hint: if their name begins with a "B", they probably are a "B". I would never go there again.

Be flexible, don't let a bad experience get you down. Pick yourself up and get back up again. There are a lot of travel companies looking for nurses. Some of my friends like smaller hospitals, but I prefer large teaching facilities. USC was a good experience for me. Keep in mind, nobody else will understand your life - except other nurses. Most of all, hang tough - and have fun on your days off.

I had a wonderful experience in Washington, NC and in Milford, CT! Both places had friendly staff and were very welcoming!I have met lifelong friends and would return to either facility! PPR Recruiter, Lindsay Graves is amazing! She cares for her nurses and sticks to her word! I have heard horror stories from other travelers about their recruiters and thankfully, I have never had ANY of their issues (pay, lack of communication, pressure to go to undesired locations)!I travel with a friend & we have both made memories to last a lifetime! I will not change companies after what I hear goes on!

TellAFirstTimer

GET EVERYTHING IN & READ YOUR CONTRACT! **I would not work with Cross Country EVER! We had to go thru them (even tho we were staying with PPR) for an extension and they harassed us about our credentials & existing certifications & physicals, & made us complete ALL of their new hire testing even tho we had already been at the current facility for 13 weeks. Shady, non negotiable, bossy and rude. Wouldn't trade Lindsay, at PPR for the world!

I was nervous. They was busting and I felt like a "new grad" I knew the business but the charting and just where the stuff was at was the hardest part of the first two weeks. I love the girls I worked with and till this day consider them my friends. I was hooked. I stayed there almost a year if that tells you anything.

I have a plan for my orientation (most is two days). What I need to know might be different from what they think I need to know. I respect what they have laid out but before that orientation is over my list of needs is also been addressed. I made a scavenger hunt to locate those used in every delivery items. I go in as part of the team mind set. I am here to help you not change you. I think of my recruiters as my friend so if you dont jive then ask to work with someone else. I refuse to work with someone that is pushy or I feel doesn't respect me.

It was recommended that I work with a particular recruiter with a well known travel company. My recruiter treated me well but her company did not empower her to resolve issues that arose. For example, my second contract was terminated due to lack of need after I paid my rent & moved in on Friday with a scheduled shift Monday. It just went from bad to worse. It devolved into a mess. This IS NOT the company that I'm with now. I really enjoy my recruiter, Jennifer Endres-Zerhusen @ TruStaff. I couldn't be happier with her and TruStaff. I'm proud to be called "one of Jenn's nurses!" She Always takes personal care of us. We love our Jennifer-she's a 2 time Recruiter of the Year.

TellAFirstTimer

I'm an 8 year traveler in critical care. Please look at the entire value of a contract. What are you actually going to make for the whole thing?? Different companies package your compensation in different ways. Ask questions like: are bonuses taxed? what are all the housing options? Do your own research about the area including housing, furniture rentals, etc. when selecting a recruiter:ask other traveling nurses for the name of their recruiter. Ask questions about what this person does for them. Please try to remember your recruiter is your personal connection to almost everything. If you don't like them or you can't reach them in a timely fashion, imagine them holding your check, housing, etc in their hand. With all that said, I absolutely adore my recruiter Jennifer Endres Zerhusen with TruStaff. She keeps up with everything including CEUs, licenses, etc. She really gets it!! She's personable & trustworthy. I never have pay problems or any other issues. My contracts are carefully reviewed by both of us. Again, no hassles. She's always available, always! She refers to us as "her nurses" & treats us as such. She's a 2 time Recruiter of the Year. Choose wisely! Travel to the cool places of your dreams! See it all! Do it all! See you out there: )

It was an ASAP assignment which is not good for a new travel RN...it was also at a facility in a popular beach resort so finding housing was impossible. Lost money on that assignment. Now I get my agency to arrange housing as it just isn't worth the hassle

TellAFirstTimer

Do not travel with Advance Med. They withheld my last paycheck, which is illegal, and the entire experience with them was a nightmare from the beginning. I'm still fighting them over this...get everything in writing and find a recruiter who really cares about you, and sees you as a person, not as a moneymaker...if I wanted to be treated that way I'd work in a strip joint

After many months of researching different travel nursing agencies, I chose Trustaff for my very first travel assignment. During this process, I have been contacted by many other agencies but decided to remain with Trustaff. Having a good recruiter can make the difference between a good or bad experience. My recruiter at Trustaff, Brenden Peterman, has worked hard to find me the best travel assignments and he has made the transition into travel nursing a smooth one. He has gone above and beyond to help with any obstacles and he has always been readily available to answer questions on my behalf. If you are considering a career as a travel nurse, I would highly recommend that you contact Brenden Peterman at Trustaff. He's great!
