    Probably depends on facility.
    Where I work, you do not get special pay for certs (ACLS, PALS, TNCC)- b/c you are expected to get these after working there for a certain amount of time.
    At other hospitals, RN's received a certain amount extra/hr for these certs.
    Also depends on if your experience is in an ED or other floor, how many years, etc...

    In our ER, RN's and Medics are started off the same pay grid at about $32-36 an hour, plus cert pay.:chuckle

    Whew ED RN 911 I wanna work where you do! In central IL (read rural) level one trauma center our RNs new grads start at $17.50/hour. I work prn (work full time as a case manager) and make good money but do not get paid for any certs and I have the following: CEN, ACLS provider and instructor, CPR provider/instructor, ENPC provider/instructor, PALS provider, EMS lead instructor, BTLS, TNS (IL only cert), TNCC, PEPP, and I have an MSN to boot - no extra money. However, I love the ER.

    In the UK, all ED nurses are paid more than ward nurses, this has caused alot of aggrivation amongst experienced ward nurses!
