PROS:

Coworkers

CONS:

The facility is in bad condition. Travel nurses are floated to other units frequently and often in the middle of your shift. You may work 0700-1500 in one unit then have to give report in the unit you are leaving only to go pick up a full load of new patients from 1500 to 1900 in another unit. I would not go back on a travel contract there again.
