now I want a better pension.
(Theres no difference between male & female salaries in my city for the staff nurses. We're unionized & starting salaries, differentials for education, shift, experience, specialty certifications, in-charge pay, etc are the same for each of us. Boys & girls as well. Maybe its different for nurses in management)

Nov 24, '01I see we've heard from Oregon, but that nurse has many years' experience. Any west coast (California especially) nurses 1-5 years experience willing to tell? (I'm starting the RN program in the fall.)
Nov 24, '01Before moving last year to NY, I worked in WA for 4 years.
$21.00/hr, $3.50/hr eve diff, $1.50/hr charge pay. OT time and a half after 8 hours, double after 12 hours. Weekend diff $4.00/hr. o/c pay $3.25/hr.
Nov 24, '01I worked registry (agency) in LA this year for $33/hr in critical care. Med-surg pay was $30/hr. An RN on staff at that hospital with 5 yrs experience, a BSN, & working nights was making $25/hr.
Nov 26, '01I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU GETTING PAID. I BELIEVE YOU. I KNOW SOME NURSES IN CALIFORNIA WHO MADE ABOUT 90K JUST FROM WORKING REGISTRIES OR TRAVELING BUT NO MINE LIKE YOU SAID THE CASH IS OUT THERE IT IS UP TO YOU TO SEEK IT. COST OF LIVING IN CALIFORNIA IS HIGH. A NEW 3 BEDROOM HOME 2500 SQ FT WILL RUN ABOUT 200K. SO YOU NEED MAD MONEY TO LIVE THESE DAYS. :-)
Nov 26, '01Sorry I don't mean to bust into this thread again but in case you didn't see my "female salaries" thread, I'd like to try and get something through legislation that many females are being paid less than their male counterparts and shouldn't be so for those of you that are female who have kindly taken part in this thread and feel as though you are being paid less than your male equivelants, please e mail me your pay details that you have posted here and how it is you know for a fact that you are being paid less than the male. Thanks, and please continue!
Dec 2, '01I think we are all interested in this subject,especially in view of the current nursing shortage which has led to nursing duties being taken over by others-in one case EMT's are doing nursing care and giving meds under the supervision of an RN in a ICU. I have been a nurse since 1976 and while I do not know for a fact that males are paid more,I have noticed that often men are given supervisory positions earlier than females. The only study I know of to compare salaries of men and women studied engineers (typically male) with a bachelor's degree with RN's with a bachelor's degree (typically female) and found that although the starting wage was the same,the engineers were making much higher salaries in 10 years. The other factor holding nurses down is that there is a narrow window between starting salaries and the top pay in the institution. I know of nurses who have worked for the same hospital for 26 years who are still not making top pay. It can't be a question of competence or they would not still be working there,I hope.
