Nov 19, '11Quote from nomadcrnaI made $62/hr as an ICU nurse in Santa Clara, CA just a few months ago before i started CRNA school. $50/hr for a CRNA, very funny!!Back in 1993, I was moonlighting in Louisiana and Texas.
More recently has been Texas, Montana, Idaho and Washington.
If a CRNA is getting $50/hr, make sure they get kissed because they are getting screwed.
Nov 19, '11I 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.
Nov 19, '11I have heard that CA pays way more than other parts of the country. Pittsburgh is unfortunately low in pay. It's cheap to live here but still...I was shocked when I was told that as well.
