WOW. I'm underwhelmed.........
I checked with two area hospitals what they pay an RN (Med/Surg) with 3-4 years experience:
One was $16.50
The other was a WHOPPING
I was so disgusted I hung up.
Both of these jobs involved travelling >20 Miles.
I opted for Cracker Barrel. I'm starting a new job as a WAITRESS.......I talked to one of the waitresses there and she said on a good day you can make $100/shift.
The manager said on a good day, you'll wind up making about $13.00/hr.
I'm following in the grand footsteps of Mildred Pierce.
H*ll, they treat nurses like waitresses anyway.
I told the Mgr. what we had to endure at the hospital from patients' families - he said "there won't be any of that HERE!!!!!!!!!
A freakin' waitress gets more respect than a RN!
