Jul 18, '01West Coast, Florida
$22.80hr with more for differentials
ER - Fast Track
Same hospital 12 years with 6 in ED
Most other ED RNs make $18.00 hr
I was fortunate that I took time off to upgrade to Case Manager then returned to ED with only a 3% loss in wage!
Jul 18, '01Just got a job as Clinical Nurse Manager....starting out at 20.70hr, will get a raise after 3 mo probationary period is over...
Jul 18, '01At a glance, it's tougher to compare annual wages with hourly wages. How much is allowed for shift differentials, weekends, etc?
As a staff nurse in a clinic setting (no weekends,holidays or shifts), I make 32.33/hr after 22 yrs of experience for annual wages of 67k; if I worked on the floor, I could report annual wages of about 75k allowing for differentials (which may lead people to believe my hourly wages were about 36./hr--a little difference!!

2. 3 yrs
3. Home Health/ per visit
4. Fort Worth, TX
5. $75,000.00 easy. Could be much more if I chose to do more than 40 visits/week.
I get medical insurance and a week's vacation as long as I average 32 visits/week. I get to make my own hours, and best of all, get to spend quality time with my patients! I don't miss the hospital one bit.
I put in about 38 hours/week, and can choose to work as little or as much as I prefer! I can't imagine doing anything else!Last edit by TLSpectra on Jul 19, '01
Jul 19, '01position: RN, night supervisor (okay i am the only person in the office at night)
Years 20+ (paid my dues, done my time...)
area : Telephone triage/telehealth
hourly wage: 19/hr + 2 something/hr shift dif
I have worked in a bunch of areas, I don't want to go back to any of them, and frankly your wouldn't want me back in most of them. I was not very good at bedside nursing. Although I was a great hospice nurse, and good at triage.
You were right this is an interesting thread.

Your ignorance is truly astounding.
Your grammer horiffic.
I for one am glad that I do not have your 'type" around me anymore. It is one reason I left the LPN-RPN "role" behind and became a RN. The hopsital I work in only employs RN's. It is one of the reasons I am there.
True ignorance is scarey. Your type - which sounds like a mixture of ignorance and a inferiority complex is really scarey.

Jul 21, '01I have been an RN for 8 years and work as a circulating nurse in the operating room of an ambulatory surgery center in middle Tennessee for $19.30/hr. I have a verbal contract to work 4 eight-hour days a week with benefits, but the actual time worked varies from 4 to 12 hrs/day. depending on the surgical schedule and whether we have adequate staffing on a given day. For the sake of efficiency (translation--money), we are minimally staffed, and we all know that if anyone calls in sick, the rest of us are going to have a long, stressful, peanut-butter & cracker day (no breaks or lunch). Yes, we have "PRN" people, but the majority of them can only work on certain days. That means we usually have to make do with who we have. I love my job, but would prefer to work regular hours! I don't have the answers as to how, but it seems it could be managed better.
