    remember to ask for more then the first offer. I have always found that if you don't ask, you don't get!

    In Cleveland, beginning ER RNs, no matter the education, get about 20 per hour. Most experienced/senior staff/charge get about 27-30 per hour. Needless to say, it takes a while to reach the higher levels. Cathy, RN, BSN, Cleveland

    Sorry, as a part-time staff ER nurse with 7 years with the facility, in Cleveland, I make 26.98/hr. What the deal is with the other 2 cents - no one can answer. As an agency with this experience, and of course ACLS, PALS, BLS, I make 39/hr weekday 1st shift. If I haven't had enough of the abuse for one week and I pick up a weekend night shift through agency, I make 45/hr. The deal gets really sweet with weekend, night shift on a holiday - then it's 63/hr. For example, I since this past Christmas and New Year's fell on the weekends - I worked night shift 12/23 11p-7a and got the higher rate of 63/hr. Hope this helps. Cathy, RN, BSN, Cleveland

    I think a problem here is that in the US most ED nurses make the same as a floor nurse etc. We all know salaries and Costs of Living vary across the country. SO pasting the varied hourly rates is not as useful as going to your states forum. In general though ED nurses do not make a different pay schedule than Other acute care nurses in the US. More than clinic nurses, but not more otherwise.

    Our baby nurses start at $18.75 with no extra for certifications. I've been around a while and make $32.54 with no extra for certifications. Certifications are required to work in the area, not something one gets to earn extra money.

    Plus, is that a per diem rate or do you also get benefits. Around here, if you give up your bennies, you get more per hour.
