@ Deer Little - hahahaha! And you wonder why I loves me my RT(R)'s!! And RRT's. And MT's. And...and...oh hell, just everyone in Allied land :-)

ps- of course we all love Big...he's our fave RN. (Hi Big!!)


That's exactly why I've always said that I CAN'T STAND nurses.

Silly boy. *shaking head*

Bill B, RN

whatever, lady. sell it to someone who is bying your crap.


@ Little- Miss ya Deer!

@Alma - Yep! I do love my job tho and have never done RN recruiting.

@ Bill B - As I said above, I do not work with RN's. And while your comments may reflect how other companies work, that is not an accurate reflection of my company and how we work. I am familiar with bill rates. Trust me...the extra $ is not funneled to the recruiter via commisson or any way else. The industry is dying due to the economy and hospitals getting smarter at meeting their staffing needs.

I have never ever lied or misrepresented myself or my company to any of my clients in the close to 10 years I've been employed with them. You don't know me. You've never worked with me. I don't appreciate you calling me a liar.

Bill B. RN

everyone nows recruters can pay more money to the nurse if they want to. there is a negociated bill rate that a company bills a hosp. for "X" rn & its a LOT more than the nurse gets. but to give the nurse more $ means the recruiter, (yes you you blogposter) gets less in profit and less comissition.

recruitrs are greedy and lie. plain and simple. its why the industry is dieing.


I used to be a travel nurse recruiter, and I was often in this exact position...so I feel your pain. I remember nurses threatening to leave assignments if they didn't get more money...complaining about things they agreed to before the assignment. I found that they complained much less and respected me more if I stopped being nice and just straight-up told them: "No...you were perfectly aware of the contract you signed, when you signed it. I have no wiggle room." Most of the time, nurses ask for more just to see what they can get...usually because someone on their shift has bragged about their $. The reality is that it comes from somewhere. Usually, every agency gets the same going rate. If someone's offering more money, it's usually at the expense of good benefits.

I'm SO glad I'm out of that industry. Those nurses used to drive me nuts.


"Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we choose
We'd fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way."
