There is definatly a nursing shortage in Ct and you will not have any trouble finding a position!!
As for rates of pay- To the best of my knowledge and from what I have seen myself and heard from others-
per visit is about $35/visit and $50 or $60 for an admission.
Not so sure anymore. It's been so long!
Long term care
RN's about 24-28 base + shift diffs, w/e diffs, etc. Plus usually more if you supervise.
In a 90 bed facility I had made 24 base + 4 Supervisor pay + 1.50 shift diff + 1.50 weekend diff. which brought me up to $31/hr on weekends. And I believe that is one of the lower paying positions.
Generally 35/hr to take the floor, 40 to sup and 50 to sup w/ floor. no benefits though.....
Again, these figures are only from what I can recall. Also, the pay varies depending on what location you would be living/working in. Good luck in your decision and your job quest!!
