Nightingale Nurses Reviews
I haven’t had issues like I’ve seen others have posted. Nightingale was my first experience with travel nursing and my contact, Jeff Winstel, was great. In fact, I still check in with him after a few years since I’ve worked with them to keep in touch and see what’s out there. Anytime Nightingale calls me with a different recruiter, I always tell them I’ll only work with Jeff. I’m sorry others haven’t had a good experience with Nightingale but when I worked with them, no issues.
One of the worst company to work for. Liars, thieves and a disloyal company.
Garbage company. They submitted me for a contract to NYC and they refused to add or remove any clauses into contracts. They insisted it was a 1-size fits all, and all contracts with all companies nation wide were basically the same (red flag.). They had all sorts of provisions written into the contract to pay you minimum wage and to not pay you your stipends. When questioned they eluded to that i was an inexperienced traveler and “thats not how we do business” (referring to what was in the contract) and would not address my contract specifically but spoke about generalities about how contracts are in general. Then after i walked away, I got an anonymous call telling me “i was famous” on the internet for yelling at recruiters (whatever that means). They are bitter, vindictive, and not transparent with doing business. Do not go with Nightinggale or their parent company AMN.
I've just had one of the worst travel experiences of my career with the company and the hospital. I have been traveling for 3 years, been a nurse for 10 years and after my company got bought out by a bigger company I started looking for another company to travel with... I had took an assignment at Lauren's County Hospital in Clinton, SC a GHS facility with Nightingale Nurses. First off, steer clear of Nightingale Nurses!!! They do not have your back as a nurse and will find any way possible to not pay you what you're owed. I signed a contract for a 13 week assignment and had nothing but issues from the start with this company. That they couldn't even get the credentialing process right should've been my signal to run the other way. They sent me to 3 different places to have my ppd, drug test and blood draws done. Three separate places for something that should've and could've been done in the same place. Then during orientation we were told to put 20 hours down on our timesheets for the modules(which were more than 20 hours). So, the first week I didnt get paid at all, which was no big deal because my recruiter told me that they held you back a week. But then, the second week when I got paid I complained because it was short and with the 20 hours the pay should've been for 52.5 hours. I had a signed timesheet for these hours. When I said something about it to my recruiter I was told that we got paid for our first week, the last week. So, I would get paid for that week at the end of my assignment. I really didn't like that answer but I thought, ok, so, I guess that'll give me more money at the end of the assignment so, that'll be ok. Then it just all went downhill from there. The hospital called me off just about every other week for "volume management" so they call it. They'd put you on call and then you were expected to standby the entire shift and wait to be called back in if they needed you. This was a regular practice at this hospital. Sometimes you'd get called off for 2 weeks in a row because it landed in two different pay periods for them, so they could legally by their contract, do that. Then with the company... Just about every week something was wrong with my pay and I was on the phone with payroll and my recruiter every week. Just as an example... They put me on call at 5pm and called me back in at 730pm one night. I live over an hour away. I put down call back pay for the rest of that night after I got there at 9pm. The company didn't pay me for the call back pay on my check the next week because after I called payroll and complained they said because the timesheet wasn't signed they had to call and verify it with the facility. Now, mind you, they did not tell me that I wasn't getting paid for it... They just didn't pay me for it. This particular situation with the call back pay, happened twice. The facility or the mother company told us in orientation that they don't sign the timesheets because we clock in and out. My company knew this and if I would not have complained, I would have just not gotten paid for it. I was put in an unsafe situation while on this assignment and I complained to my recruiter and supposedly it was documented but no one from the travel company or the hospital reached out to me about this either. This is a nightmare already as you can read. So, in the time span of 3 weeks, my car broke down on the way to work, my sister got sick and I ended up having to go home(2 hours away from the assignment) and I got a migraine and missed work. Even after all the call offs and all the stuff I'd been through with this assignment... The hospital cancelled my contract due to "excessive absences" with only 3 weeks left on the contract. They cancelled my contract when they had called me off more than I had even called in and for legitimate reasons. So... Now even more fun starts... The first paycheck that I was supposed to get the last week... Not true. It was the paycheck that I had complained about being wrong at the beginning. They didn't pay me for the modules and of course, now, the hospital is saying they don't do that. Even though, I have a signed timesheet by the manager that agreed to that the first week... No, I'm not going to get paid for that. Then, the last week I worked 24.5 hours due to missing that day... Surprise! And I hope this helps some of the rest of you to watch what you sign... I got paid minimum wage for that last week and no per diem because I didn't work all the hours I was supposed to that week... And yes, that is in the contract... But not about the per diem but it is about the minimum wage. So, I ended up with $137 for my last check. During ALL of this no one and I repeat... NO ONE at Nightingale Nurses besides my recruiter, EVER reached out to me. Not when I was complaining about the facility calling me off all the time. Not when I was complaining about being put in unsafe situations. Not when I missed work. Not when my contract got cancelled. Not when I was fighting to get paid for the modules. Not at all! I think, that is a pretty sorry way to treat your nurses... Pretty dang sorry. This has never happened before and I pray it will never happen again but, I hope that by me sharing this it will help some of you.
