"I wanted everything taken care of for me, and all I wanted to do was unpack my suitcase and that’s all I did. The housing is awesome. Everything is furnished for me, including dishes and towels. All I had to do was move in. They paid my flight here, and are giving me a car allowance. I have free furnished housing, utilities, car allowance and on top of all of that, the pay is great. My recruiter is wonderful, very personable and seems to think of the little things that make my home away from home homier. And, even more important, I faxed my time slip Monday morning, and the deposit was there Thursday morning. No Problems!! Don’t know about you, but to me this is a Travel Nurse Heaven!"
