Sep 5, '01I look at these salaries and laugh. Supposedly there is a nursing shortage - you would never be able to tell that with how pawltry some of those salaries are. Of course most of the nurses involved would rather whine about it than do something.
Until we learn to stand together we will be treated like second rate workers. When are you all going to understand it.
start saying no to administration. Stand up for yourself. Put nurses first!!!!
Sep 5, '01I work 32 hours a week WEO as an LVN at local hosp. and make $14.00 an hour. Through the week, I work agency and travel about 60 miles to make $23.00 - $26.00 an hour depending on unit I am assigned to. Am staying with local hosp. for the benefits, not the pay. NE TEXAS area.
Sep 5, '01You folks are killing me with the who makes what and where thing. I would venture to say most of the CNA's out there make more than a lot of Paramedics due...at least in the State of South Carolina. Average goes from the low of $5.65 to a high of 32k starting base. Most postions have few if any benifits. That is usally on a 24 on hour schedule and 48 off, top that with the fact that EMS and Fire can get the ding of a Federal Regualtion that allows employers to get away with requireing there station to be staffed but if you don't have to get paid if you don't run a call. This so called sleep time is exempted from your pay , in other words you there for 24 hours, and your employer can deduct 8 hours a shift from your pay if they elect to do so. So please think about that the next time you think your under payed!

Sep 5, '01I am an RN with 8 years of experience, and I think I must make less money than anyone else out there!! I make a 14.42 per hour in a really unique and rewarding setting. I work in a day care center for special-needs children. We are a really relaxed atmosphere, and the kids are just like family to us. We do a lot of tube feedings, respiratory treatments, seizure meds, coordinating therapies, that kind of stuff. The pay is lousy, but the job is great! I did the hospital thing, the doctor's office too, but this is the best so far.

Of course, Lousyana is famous for lower pay rates: I worked agency for 3 years at $30.00/hr, one of the best rates here. Texas is just desperate. They have $10,000-$15,000 sign ons on some reservations, but don't let them fool you, not all hospitals are willing to pay $90,000. You will have to do a lot of negotiating. I went over to Houston about a year ago and worked agency at only $27.00/hr. So unless something has changed? Get someone to send you a Houston classified or just search the internet.
