Working for this agency allowed me to be a mom during the day for my children and work nights at the hospital and unit of my choice.
The pay was amazing! The experience was irreplaceable. I worked all over the hospital such as newborn nursery, ortho, med-surg, post-partum care, step down cardio, neuro, oncology... I was able to keep all of my skills active which was important to me.
The only negative was that sometimes I would be assigned to undesirable patients that none of the nurses employed at the hospital would want. One day I was assigned to 4 AIDS patients, each located on a different hallway. I was 5 months pregnant at the time. The other negative was that if I had to treat a life threatening condition before my shift was over, I would never find out how things turned out for the patient because I never returned to the same unit/hospital 2 nights in a row.
