MSN gave me the opportunity to gain experience working at a hospital and not just any hospital but at Morton Plant which is one of the top hospitals in Clearwater, Fl. I was very happy working for MSN and when the opportunity presents itself again I would most definitely like to be a part of their team.
CNA/SITTER - (Current Employee), Raleigh, NC – September 4, 2013
A TYPICAL DAY AT WORK. YOU JUST SIT AND TALK WITH THE PATIENTS AND KEEP THEM COMPANY. ASSIST THEM TO THE RESTROOM IF NEEDED ALSO HELP THEM FEED THEMSELVES IF THEY NEED HELP. WHILE IM AT WORK I ALSO LEARN DIFFERENT WAYS TO HELP KEEP PATIENTS CALM. BUT THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB IS WHEN PATIENTS DO GET UP SET AND YOU CAN'T GET THEM TO CALM DOWN THEN – more... WE HAVE TO RESTRAIN THEM. THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF THE JOB IS WHEN IT ALL OVER AND IM GOING HOME TO GET READY FOR THE NEXT DAY AND DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN – less
The agency office finds many different places/opportunities for work
Registered Agency Nurse (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – August 26, 2013
Pros: can create own schedule, high pay
Cons: frequently cancel shifts
The agency office is easily accessible and frequently call for job opportunities. Once scheduled for a shift at a hospital, the hospital often cancels. However, the agency office will continue to find opportunities.
LPN (Current Employee), Davenport, IA – August 26, 2013
Pros: gas cards if it's a dire need or a long distance to travel.
Cons: sometimes there are last minute cancellations.
The recruiters here are great to work with and are very understanding in regards to personal issues. A typical day is just like working long-term care. The hardest part of the job is not knowing for sure where you will be needed. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with others as part of a team.
State Tested Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Columbus, OH – August 15, 2013
Pros: all aspects of the job duties
Cons: no benefits
Working at Medical Staffing Network I would work at different nursing homes or hospitals. Some assignments would be at the same place for several days, some for only a couple. I would assist patients with their daily activities and help the nurses as needed. I would complete paperwork and exchange information with the attending nurse as well as my replacement. – more... My job was fun, exciting, and very rewarding. The only downside to this company was I did not have benefits. – less
Fast paced environment. Learned about credentialing for nurses and Allied health (inservices, licenses, etc.) Management is open to suggestions and treats everyone with respect. They celebrate achievement and the benefits are excellent.

Recruiter (Current Employee), Boca Raton, FL – July 15, 2013
I used to love coming to this place to conduct my business and put good hard working nurses to work. However over the last 12 months the morale has unfortunately taken a turn for the worse. I thoroughly enjoy what I do however the environment is not the greatest and certain members of management only seem to fend for themselves as opposed to helping – more... out the team. I've represented the company at a couple different nursing functions and wish more opportunities like this surfaced as it was great being able to network with others. Overall I feel that a change is on the horizon and I certainly look forward to a new challenge. – less
