Current RN Payscale in Colorado
- 0Jul 9, '12 by lonestar9918My wife and I have dreams of moving to Colorado. We love it up there!We are still a ways off from being able to do it, but we like to plan our family's future out in advance as much as we can. We have 4 children so understanding the pay there is important.When we move, I will have 1 year exp. and my wife will have 3 yrs.What should we plan on earning per hour??Id love to know your base pay, shift diffs, and location!Thank you fellow nurses!
- 1Jul 9, '12 by Julesmama28I'm in western co, grand junction to be exact. We have two good sized hospitals here. Starting pay is around 23$ an hour, can't tell you much more than that as I'm only starting nursing school this fall.. It is a nice sized city, not too big either. We love it here! Moved from Nevada 3 years ago. Its a four hour drive to salt lake city Ut, and four to Denver the other direction.
- 1Jul 9, '12 by kerussllColorado is great! I work at a HealthOne hospital in Denver. Everybody here says this network pays much worse than the others in town, but I'm satisfied with my paycheck. (Although I did move here from Iowa which is one of the worst paying states for nurses!) I have 1 year experience, and my base pay is $23, shift differentials are $3 after 3pm, $4 after 11pm and $1 on weekends. Since I work nights, that works out to about $50 extra a night. Call is $4 an hour at home, time and half if called in. Let me know if you have any other questions about the state
- 0Apr 17, '13 by delivernI am on the western slope in a smaller town, I have been an RN since 2002, and my base pay is $28/hour. I make an extra $4 for night diff. I am seriously considering travel nursing again at this rate. I miss what I made in MO and TX. But I didn't have these great mountain views..... what a trade off.

I was looking at a relocation and wanted to talk with someone already there. If you don't mind here is my email address: firstname.lastname@example.orgI am on the western slope in a smaller town, I have been an RN since 2002, and my base pay is $28/hour.

- 1Aug 24 by Chrystal3014I know this is old but I couldn't help but comment. I live in a small town on the eastern plains and I get paid $29.75 with a $4 shift diff for nights. I am only 2 years out of school, but I have learned negotiate your first wage out of college, it sets the bottom number for the rest of your career! From what I have heard I actually make less than other nurses but I think I still make pretty good money for a ADN RN.
