    Hi Cowgirl, I was interested in what you wrote about pay rates in Arkansas. I am in Australia and have worked in psych for 18 years and currently work in community mental heath as a case manager. I am interested in knowing , if i did relocate to Arkansas then what facilities are available to work in either inpatient or community based and the expected rates of pay.
    I currently work as a senior staff member so I would envisage pay would not be that of a beginning practioner.

    Hello to you . I have a background in acute care and not so much Psych, as far as full time, I do not know what the rates are, based on my years of nrsg(26+) day rate as flex staff is 29.00. Yours would probably be more. Since I haven't looked anywhere else for a job, I can only tell you that Fayetteville , Ar and Fort Smith have psych units the full time pay would be less because you would have benefits. I understand that Sparks Medical Center in Fort Smith has an outreach as well as a Geri-psych unit but I do not know the pay scale. Probably the Little Rock area would pay more and have more facilities. There are other units that are more like rehab and child and adolescent units, the last I heard Charter Vista was only paying 18.00 for full time psych nurses. Hope that is helpfull. You might try some of the travel nurse ads, they could give you a better idea and they would advertise in the Arkansas state board of nursing magazine. Good luck cowgrl44

    I am still wondering about what is the best pay in Arkansas. I will be a new grad in May (God's will). I know St. Vincents starts out 17.50 a hr. not sure about shift differentials etc. After I am oriented, I want to work the weekend nights and some over time. What hospital has the best ot pay, differentials in Arkansas. Does anyone know what he VA starts out at. I am interested in workin there but not sure about they pay and I think they pay less to ADN grads. I know I can't go agency right now so I want to find the best pay for the next 2-3 yrs. and then think about agency.

    Does anyone live/work in the El Dorado/Camden area? Any ideas about starting RN salaries around there?
