Average hourly pay for per diem agency RN?
- 0Oct 5, '06 by CowsRGreatHi,
I jst recently became a per diem agency RN in LA. I have a BSN, work tele/ms, and have two years experience in a acute care teaching hospital. I know we really don't discuss numbers here, but I can't help feeling like I'm being ripped off. I won't mention the agency I'm with but I will say that I am making $36/hour + time and a half for every 4 hours I work over 8 hours during a 12 hour shift. I typically work 3-12's/wk. I don't have benefits or any other incentives. I love working for my agency, but feel that I should be making a bit more. It would be great if you guys could disclose some known rates/hr!

- 0Oct 23, '06 by blyss99hello I am new to the forum however I am an owner of medical staffing agency in Pa . Our RN's with the same experience and work opportunity make 36.00-38.00 an hour, we negotiate ot paid on both anything after 8 hours and also after40 hours. As an RN i think it is important to get our staff the same for an agency as what a hospital would pay their own, so we negotiate on 8hr/40 hour this is a reasonable pay for PA rural, In the cities it could go 46.00-50.00 an hour with same ot benifit.

Is that the going rate in Atlanta? The hospital is 70 miles from my home.
THanks! I don't have any experience in the agency realm.
Anything else I should know? thanks!
