Ok, so anyone who reads this stuff I blog about knows from last friday's post I'm none to happy with my current job situation. But, I think I found an opportunity I can get behind.
A past co-worker suggested that I sign up with a traveling nurse agency, instead of trying to apply to our local hospitals. So I checked it out.
Apparently, I can work as needed when local hospitals need shifts filled for almost twice as much as I make now! Of course, there's no benefits, but Husband takes care of those. I can work when I want, as much or as little as I want. And I figured it out, if I work 6-7 shifts a month, I can make the same as I am now.
Let me say that again. 6-7 shifts a month. I'm working 5 days a week, one day being Saturday, and taking call during the month at night, and I only make $27/hour, (which btw is the lowest pay I've had since becoming a nurse). This place I found I'd be making $40/hr.
Jeez, let me think about this....Sounds awesome to me!
So, even though I'm a little nervous about travel nursing because I've never done it, I think I'm going to go for it. Truely, it can't be worse than what's going on right now.
Remember, it's just a ride.
