Arizona Pay Scale......

  1. We are think about moving to Arizona or Nevada.......
    I am nurse with 10 years oncology nursing experience. I make $31.05/hr.
    Is this comparable to Arizona pay?
    Thanks a million......

    I make a dollar less than you with less than 3 years experience. Yes, I would say it is comparable.

    Average AZ RN salary is about the same as the national average. The national median hrly rate is between $25.50 and $33.80 for RNs with 10-19 yrs experience.

    From what I've seen clinics pay slightly less than bedside.

    I am wondering the same thing. Looking to relocate from TX to AZ...I make 23 as an ICU nurse with 2 years experience. What do nurses in the Phoenix Metroplex make? I have been seeing a range of 22-50. I would like to know what to expect. If you work in AZ, what do YOU make as an RN? Thanks!!!!!

    $30/hr with 2.5 yrs experience. I just relocated to TX and pay stinks. Same cost of living as AZ where I am located.

    I think with your experience, you should get about 27-29 an hour base. The hard part will be finding a job!

    That doesn't really hold true in my experience. Most people I know (myself included) with about 2-3 years HOSPITAL experience (not LTC, MD office, etc.) earn anywhere from $28.50 to $30.00 an hour (not including overtime, call, etc). Top level at most Valley hospitals can hit around $42.00-$43.00. The few folks I know who have about 10 years experience or so earn around $37.00-$38.00. The national average is kind of low...

    I recently accepted an offer from Abrazo centra campus in pheonix AZ as a RN for $30/hr. I only have 1 year experience from a very advanced institution so $30/hr seems very cheap for me. What I don't know is if RNs get an increase after orientation at this institution. I am reading all the documentation I received from Abrazo but nothing mentioned annual salary or increase. Also, I'm new to pheonix, with $30/hr what does your biweekly pay check looks like with one dependent? What do you thing about this offer?

    The offer is ok. Mayo is 34.00 or so with 1 year. Abrazo is also a for-profit institution. I have found their facilities to be kind of awful and would never want to be a patient in any of their critical care units if I could help it. So I would keep interviewing - terrible hospitals. Your net pay depends on too many variables (health insurance, 401K, etc.) do give you any meaningful numbers.

    Does it make a difference at all if you have a BSN?
