Jun 24, '01I Live in Southeast Alabama. 15 years experience as a RN mostly Peds and OB now working for the largest Hospital in 100 miles as a telephone triage nurse. Our starting salary is (can you believe it) $11.25. We top out at $19.00/hr They only give experience differential for up to 10 years experience. Our shift dif is 8% evening, 16 % nights no weekend or holiday diff, no benefits for prn and no extra pay for prn work. Charge pay is 50 cents an hour and you make 50 cents/hr for a BSN. I have worked here for 2 1/2 years and make about $17.00/hour with benefits for part time work at a higher rate ($ 247.00 month for dental and health insurance) than a full time empoyee and prorated vacation and sick time. Our top merit raise is 4% but no one ever gets more than a 3%. Wanna come work here?

Jun 25, '01The best $$ I ever made was travelling! if you get into a big city like Phoenix for example. you can do travel assignments and never have to move! there are several hospitals there and you can go from one facility to the next making top dollar and have benefits as well as free rent! I miss travelling

Jun 25, '01I have been an LPN in LTC for 6 years in MN. I started at $9.98/hr as a new grad. I work ON-CALL @ 32 hours a week and currently make $16.44/hr. Because I work ON-CALL I do not get the state approved wage increases, and I am at the top of the pay scale in my facility set for LPN's. I do get a "longegevity bonus" because I have been with the company for over 5 years. That is 3% of your last years wages. I consider myself lucky. My sister and brother have had various jobs, never paying much, and they hate their jobs. I love my job and consider that before I became a nurse I only made $7.25/hr in a factory, which back then I thought was OK. I have taken assessment tests to start the RN program, but i have only done LTC and am fearful of any other area of nursing. I have thought of the military nursing options but am yet undecided. Being that I am at the top of the pay scale, I have to move on and go for my RN.

Looks like Texas is not the only place with some high wages, I just saw a job posting on Monster.com for RN's in Cincinatti with a BASE RATE of up to $46/hr plus $4/hr shift diff.
Jul 8, '01Maybe I am missing something (been out of the clinical setting for 5 years... about to go back) but it seems to me if the agencies and travel companies can demand the big pay rates and benefits packages, why don't all nurses join the agencies?
Please be gentle with me... but this just seems like a no-brainer.

Sorry to say, assisted living is not the huge money-maker everyone thinks it is... the people who own them aren't rolling in dough (unless you own several, maybe). Huge overhead.
