Question


I recently applied to travel nurse international to work in calif-i am from alberta,canada- i am now being told completion bonuses are being deleted as they are taxed heavily by amer.gov't. is this true and are the majority of travel nurse companies deleting them or should i apply to another company?

Response


I have yet to hear of such a thing. However, I would continue to apply with other companies and then make your decision. It is always a good idea to have more than one option. You might try Supplemental Health Care and O'Grady-Peyton for example. They are well versed in international travel. You can find them on the website's agency listing.

Question


I am writing to ask if you know if LPN's from outside USA are employed by any nursing travel agencies, I am from Australia and am a Registered Nurse Division 2 which is equivalent to a US LPN and I am hoping to get work in the US,any information would be greatly appreciated

Response


Unfortunately the requirements for LVN travelers are not as high as RN in the United States, but that is not to say an assignment isn't there for the taking. If I were you, I would start with the following company. They are most likely to have a position for you and know how to get you there.
O' GRADY-PEYTON INTERNATIONAL
532 Stephenson Ave. #100
Savannah, GA 31405
877-504-7794
info@ogpinc.com

They are experienced in international staffing and are actively involved right now in trying to staff California. California recently implemented a mandatory nurse to patient ratio. I predict LVN's will be in higher demand in California shortly to help with staffing costs etc.
Keep in touch and let me know what you find out.

Question


My husband and I, both RNs, are thinking about travel in a RV. What are the pros and cons of this? Thanks

Response


Traveling in an RV can be fun and financially rewarding. The RV serves as a comfortable transportation vehicles as well as a mobile house. You would save additional money living in an RV while collecting travel allowances and housing subsidies. When it was all said and done, traveling will have also paid off your RV which you can then sell or upgrade. You no longer have to pack and unpack or wonder what type of housing you will have when you arrive to an assignment. The down side is that you will be limited to RV park locations. From what I understand, this isn't much of a problem. You should be able to find one fairly close to the hospital. There are many RV parks throughout the United States.

Question


I am going to be interviewing for a job at St. Thomas, in the Virgin Islands. Do you know of any nurses that have worked travel assignments there, and liked it?

Response


I haven't known any nurses that have been there, but I did know a surgical technician that love it. According to him.....the hard terrible part about going there is having to return home. I hope you write in and tell us about it if you go. I am sure others would love to hear about your adventure.

Question


How plentiful are Psych Nursing assignments, and which agencies have the most Psych jobs?

Response


Psych is not as plentiful as other nursing specialties. While these positions may be more challenging....it is not impossible to travel.

Your best bet is to find a company willing to search for positions for you. Once you find a company that is willing to work with you on an individual basis you will be fine. Also, Coremedical has been known to have psych positions in the past....you may want to try them. Also, if you are interested in international travel at all....you may contact Psychiactric Care Consultants (pcc@pccnurses.com.au).

Question


i'm finishing a current contract where i was for 26 weeks from the intial first meeting the staff trhoughout the hospital was not friendly,hostile and just downright rude....now the nurses are reporting things not done wheras they are guilty of the same thing..plus i'm guarenteed 36 hours and the next two weeks she has sligted me 12 hours each week...what should i do?

Response


I am glad you are finishing up your contract. Way to hang in there. Every once in awhile a nurse will find herself among a sea of sharks. Your proper plan of action is to contact your agency. They should have someone that is a nurse advocate for problems like this. The cut in hours will concern them as well. Unfortunately, some agencies are great at backing up their nurses and some aren't. Good luck and watch your back and dot your I's as they say.
