    Hey emab, not sure if you noticed, but the year of the OP was 2005. Seems this thread is pretty old. Not sure if the pay has changed much since then though.
    I agree. the pay has not changed much. at baptist it is actually the same.

    at kendall regional is $22/hr with a 4-5 night differential

    at miami children's it is $22.53/hr with a 4-6 night diff

    Doesn't seem like very much for all the stress in nursing school.

    i do have to agree with you that with the cost of living now adays, specially here in miami it is not a lot of money.

    i chose this career not for the money but for the satisfaction that i would be helping other people.

    pediatrics to me is my calling. and i knew in my heart that i was going to be an rn for my life.

    i will make probably about $53k per year before taxes.
    and to me, that is pretty good for an associate's degree.

    i honestly do not know of another career that you make $53k/year with an associates degree.

    a bachelor's in psychology= nothing
    sociology=nothing
    business=nothing.................. every other career you need to get a master's degree.

    miami cost of living sucks, everyone gets paid less here than in other states.

    but right now, i am super happy because i am making $27/hr for night shift. which is a lot compared to what i used to make as a cashier $6.50/hr or a cna $10.50/hr

    I guess that depends if you have experience or not. because I know people who work there, and they get $21/hr.... but then again, we just finished school and got our licenses a couple of months ago.
