How much does a CRNA really make? - Page 5Register Today!
- Nov 19, '11 by nomadcrnaI made 30 an hour as an ICU nurse doing locums, nights/weekend back in the early 80s. They sure were long 12 hr shifts.
The last spot I had was a 2 week on and 2 week off gig for $170k. My two weeks on were not busy, many times I had no cases and stayed home or whatever. As long as I could respond within 30min for OB or emergencies.
So the hourly pay is not really comparing apples to apples anyway. It is a whole different life.
