PSA Healthcare in Florida

  1. 0
    Hello everyone,

    I'm a new grad and as you all know, it's pretty hard to find a job without experience. I live in south Florida. I applied to PSA Healthcare because they hire new grads and offer training. I've heard good and bad things about the company depending on the location.
    Does anyone have any input about this company here in Florida?
    Thank you!

    Their pay is horrible $16/hr no mileage reimbursement. I guess it's better than not being employed and not using your nursing skills.

    Is that $16/hr for RN or LPN?

    i got an email saying that based on reimbursement, they pay rns $18.00-20.00 per hour based on pt acuity. i found out one of the girls from a previous class is currently working with them since may. she told me they pay her $16 per hour because she's a level one (inexperienced new grad rn).
    if i get offered the job i'm going to take it. i rather have $16 per hour in my pocket than $0 waiting. she also told me that after a month she included her new experience with psa in her resume and she got called from a hospital for a pediatric floor position. a little experience is better than none.

    I am an LPN with over 30 years of experience. PSA offered me $15 an hour.

    That's low for LPN. Not sure I get why you would get paid so low when you hold a license. Scrub Techs just have certifications and are higher than that.

    PSA is not the only one offering $15 an hour. There are 2 other nursing agencies that also offer only $15 an hour. Not enough nursing jobs in this area so they all take advantage of the nurses here.

    PSA is decent. Their pay is low but it's because they are tied to Medicare/Medicaid funding which alot of their clients have. They provide decent training and if you are a new grad they are one of the few places that will take a chance on you and give you a job once you pass their screening, interview and exams.

    Once you get some experience, this on your resume should help you get a better job. Their training through Mosby is excellent.

    I know nurses here in Floriday, level one RN that make $17 with $1 for weekend or overnight differential so that's $18 as a level 1 nurse or little experience. They pay weekly and their money isn't funny. You don't get mileage but you can choose and refuse your assignments.

    No. PSA pays low because they know they can get away with it. I have over 30 years of nursing experience. One of my other agencies pay me $18 an hour. That patient is also on medicaid and I get paid $18 an hour. It has nothing to do with medicaid.
