    It is not fishy, I truely do make that much per year, here is how it breaks down:
    charge nurse pay: 3.00/hr
    shift diff (nites) 6.50/hr
    hourly rate 35.75/hr
    total _______
    45.25/hr x 40hrs weeks=approx 91k a year, I work very little overtime and make 1000 more in incidental pay.

    I have 15 years experience, I work in a specialty area of pedi...neuro and at a major pedi hospital and negotiated for my rate, I also get 2 raises a year here average 6% they are across the board raises. The hospital has a large budget and a generous benifit plan. I personally know of some nurses that make well into 120-150k a year with all the overtime they want to eat. I would be more than happy to prove this to any nurse that cares to know....and all this at a NON-UNION hospital. hell I know nurses aides that are doing 16/hr here.

    There is money out there in nursing...you just have to look for it and be ready to demand it. Also the average pt load is only 4-5 pts/nite....that is the part that sounds unbelievable...LOL

    You've just made my day! It's been my dream for several years to work at Texas Children's Hospital. I take my son there a couple times a year for evaluations on his brachial plexus birth injury. I've always been so very impressed with how pleasant and cheerful the staff always is. Now I know why! LOL Hey, come to think of it, as a peds nurse in neuro, you may have cared for my son after his nerve graft surgery! Well, I'm gonna go pack my bags now, $91k a year has convinced me!

    3. OB/GYN/NSY
    4. 20.16/hr straight 12 hr pay; 1.00 xtra for charge, about 9.00 xtra dollars for each night shift; However, our contract is up May 31st, and with the severe shortage here it is assumed we will get the 30% (yes, 30%) pay increase we are asking for, and 10-15% next year and the next. There is talk to eliminate the incentive bonus we currently get for working extra ($50-60.00 per 4 hrs) and giving us a straight $100.00 for EVERY shift worked. Keep an eye on the Twin Cities!!

    ***WoW! Do they hire new grads at your hospital? What is the starting rate for them? Did you say you have a good benefits package and only around five patients? Oh my goodness! I can't get over the cost of living ove there. Where I live (a suburb of Chicago, IL)it would cost me $300,000 to build the house you just built. My husband and I were thinking about relocating within a year after I graduate (I graduate this May)...how are the neighborhoods out there? Can you email me with some info? You wouldn't happen to know what teachers (high school and junior high) make out there, do you? Please e-mail me if you have time.
