Is this too low?

  1. 0 Nightingale registry. A telemetry position in San giorgino hospital near palm springs, ca. $38/hr plus time and a half after 8 hrs. It seems a little low to me. :/

    Call other agencies, find out their pay scale.

    It does seem a little low. That rate is low even for Oregon/Washington. But I'm not familiar with California rates so it could be accurate. Are they paying for your housing, benefits?
    I agree with what another post suggested-try calling other agencies.

    Try calling specific hospitals and ask what agencies/travel companies they use.
    Good luck!!

    I worked for a small registry that staffed Hi Desert MC in Joshua Tree. Worked in Sub-Acute mostly. $32.00 per hour and I'm an LVN. So, $38 seems a bit low...

    It does sound low. 38 dollars an hour is about what you get paid in Florida which is historically one of lower paying nursing states.
