Second, as always, the intelligent commentary from Nick and the commenter’s always drives the facts home. I hope she realizes that people hire people. It’s as simple as that. My job was acquired because someone from the organization I now work for noticed and realized my professional demeanor and character, and went to bat for me for my present job after meeting with me for just one hour. I now ironically transition people back into the workforce which is one of the stipulations of my duties. It is a government job and I love it!

Is there a clause to prevent you from being hired as a perm employee? If there is for how long? Can the Hospital pay a fee to release the clause? Ask that they delete it which they may if they want to sign you.
If you are sick can you make up shifts? Will they deduct for Housing costs related to the time you are sick? Can you extend contract if you are sick for example a week? (some companies won't bother you if it is maybe 2-3 days in an assignment or will work with you if it is more so it is wise to discuss this possibility).
If you extend can you have some time off between? Will you be charged for housing costs if you still want to maintain the same housing? Depends how long but if you have to pay see if you can exchange a bonus for these costs. If you may need sometime in the middle of an assignment for something very important and brief give your recruiter and manager forewarning and come up with a possible plan.
