Good pay, management & variety of nursing jobs
ProLink is a staffing agency that offers good flexibility with locations & hours to staff you somewhere that works for you. Every hospital in my area is short staffed and using agency RN’s through ProLink so you can basically pick which hospital & type of floor you want to work for as long as you have the appropriate experience from med-surg to ER to ICU. They pay more for ER, ICU, critical care and LTACH positions. You can also make more money if you travel, say from the Youngstown area to Cleveland, Pittsburgh or Columbus. I sign 13 week contracts at a time (not sure if they have different lengths). Management/ Recruiters are extremely helpful and friendly!! ProLink offers medical, dental, vision insurance. The negative aspect is you’re not guaranteed a position once your contract is expired so there’s no job security but I haven’t had a problem not having contracts renewed. The hospital I’m contracted with is allowed to cancel one shift every two weeks if they’re over staffed and I do get canceled about once a month. Overtime is allowed when available on your assigned unit/floor for time and a half pay for hours >40/week. Another BIG negative is there is no paid time off so if you report off sick, have a shift canceled or take vacation time it is unpaid.
