Office jobs typically pay lower, think medical assistant for $9 or $10 an hour. I would check with others in the area doing similar work, but I think you will find that this rate is probably about on par.
I've been looking at LPN jobs in offices in the DC area, and most of them start @ $15-19..so I'm just assuming that $20/hr for an RN sounds about average. Office jobs don't seem to pay that well in this area, but the hours are pretty decent, and no weekends (for most of the listings I've seen anyways). Those seem to be the perks of the position. Good luck & congrats on your job offer
I tend to think that the wage is low. If you are in a big city as opposed to a rural area? I got $20 in very rural area here in northern CA. I left after a year. And now trying to get into VA Clinic near me that pays more than double! You could do it for the experience? But what other profession does one have to take a paycut to do the job? Nursing is so dysfunctional.
It sounds low to me as well, but around here an RN in a clinic is almost unheard of. They typically staff with MA's and a few LPN's with RN's used for triage only. When they pay the MA's and LPN's "poorly", $20 an hour seems like an extremely generous salary!
I work at a family clinic in rural KY. My initial salary was $ 25. After 2 years I make $30/hr w/out benefits. I works not only for clinical stuff, but also IT stuff. I fix almost all computer/EMR and IT problems. Am I underpaid ??? What do you think ??
