i was shocked to see an ad in a washington newspaper wanting an NP in their hospital starting at 26.00 per hour! i mean that seems really ridiculous when i see the starting range at hospitals in my area (a few hours away from the aforementioned one) starting RN's at 23.00 per hour. I have no plans to become an NP but still that is really disappointing for the amount of responsibility an NP has and their level of schooling.
i thought they would at least be starting around 33-35 per hour. my goodness!
