Do nurses get paid hourly or salary.

  1. 0
    Hello,
    I am in the computer field and studying to become a nurse.
    However, I was wondering I am hoping that people in this field get paid by the hour that is what I have heard also do you get overtime after 40 hours?
    Thanks,
    Jon.

    I get paid hourly. I work 12 hour shifts and get overtime after 80 hours in the 2 week payperiod.

    We get paid an hourly rate four 12 hour shifts. Also, overtime if we put in for it for missing breaks or having to stay after our shift is over. We don't get paid overtime after 40 hours (work 84 hours in 2 weeks) but we do get a paid day off every six weeks, which is equal. It's actually really nice because if you take that day with a stat day you get a paid week off every six weeks.

    hi! i'm working in at kaiser in cali and am paid by the hour. OT, which is anything over 40hrs/wk or 8hrs/day (aka a double or 2 consecutive shifts), is paid time and a half for the first 4 hrs and double for the last 3.5 hrs.

    It depends on the job. If you work as floor or staff nurse you usually get paid hourly with OT being anything over 40 hours. If you have an administrative job such as DON, ADON, you get paid salaried.
