What is your net take home pay every two weeks? - page 3

I have read many posts regarding pay rates. However, once deductions and such have been taken out, what are you left with post tax, benefits, etc. Can you tell me the state or province you are in... Read More

    I bring home about $900 after taxes (just got my last check of orientation time so the next one should be better with shift diff). I have life and health insurance held out as well.

    Q2wks $1700 $2750 before withholdings.

    best check ever with three OT (which pay double rate) $2950

    Last year was 75K

    Our diff's are 27% base on weekends, and 15% weekdays.

    My position is availible, I leave for CRNA school in two months.

    BTW our rival hospital just upped its hourly and is giving a $13000 sign on for a two year commitment on nights (weekend diff of 8 bucks). With experience the hourly would aproach 27 bucks. If I was staying I would have to consider them.

    Nurse4Kids,
    Which hospital in B'ham,if you want to work Peds? Lived there many years ago and worked briefly at Baptist-Montclair and then old East End hospital where I worked the peds unit. Absolutely loved Peds and have not seen a true peds unit since I left there...
    I had the opportunity to work at Children's Hospital,but had to move due to domestic violence
    For some reason, the folks around here consider Peds to be an opportunity to throw in orthopedics for adults and thus I have refrained from working on them.
    Glad to hear you are doing well working there...I remember headhuntes calling nursing desks looking for someone,anyone to work at Cooper Greene...read an article not long ago that led me to believe that CG has cleaned up its image.

    Not making much money here,sad to say, but it pays the bills...well,some of them.

    Wow! Having not made more than $200 per week for the last 8 years as a housekeeper, all of your take home checks sound good to me! Of course I only worked three days per week, 5-6 hours per day, but still...I think I wouldn't mind getting $800-1200 per two weeks. Right now, I am in PN school and making $0.00, so it doesn't take much to excite me!

    Ok, after much calculating, pencil sharpening, eraser chewing and thoughtful contemplation... I finally decided to look at my paystub.

    Gross about $1600 every 2 weeks... my NET is too gross to even think about... <giggle>

    Peace

    I just grabbed out a check stub to check it, gross was $1405 for 32 reg hrs, 32 PTO(paid time off) and 2 hrs overtime with $1.50 for 3-11 shift dif. Also get an extra 30 cents an hr when I do Peds (charge pay). I only do .8, which is 4 days per week instead of 5. We have direct deposit and I also have savings for Credit union taken out so net about $1010.
    Just had my yearly evaluation last week and will be getting a 71 cent/hr raise

    I will say that the w/e diff at the job I'm about to start is $10.00/hr.

    My pay varies as I work .6-when I don't work overtime,it's pitiful-but I usually work some OT and am getting a small pension due to early retirement. Net pay runs from 600$ to 900$-but I have health ins for my husband and healthcare account and drugs taken out of my pay,as well as a cafeteria account.Lunches can add up

    Nilepoc, where are you? I also am in ABQ and would like to know where all these $$ are! Have been told favorable things RE LTC pay; unfortunately this is the only favorable thing!

    Best of luck in CRNA school.

    P.S. I have heard much grumbling RE the huge bonuses/terms. Is this by any chance Pres you are referring to?

    Suzanna,
    You're right, there are several other hospitals with peds units, but like you said, they mix adults in there with the kids. I work at Children's. I'm honestly not sure about BMC; just figured they mixed peds with adults like the other Baptist hospitals. A good friend of mine left Children's to go work at Medical Center East (old East End)as a charge nurse on the peds unit. She ended up getting a crash course in OB one night when the ped census dropped low and the OB high. She ended up doing more OB care than pediatric. She's back at Children's. I dunno about Cooper Green cleaning up their act. Still has a pretty poor rep, but I imagine their client population highly contributes to that. They DO pay the highest in the city. I did clinicals there back in '94 and it was like something you'd have imagined back in Florence N's time. Everything was totally manual, no computerization, no IV pumps, limited supplies and the patients were the most critical I'd ever seen. The staff's attitudes were as bad as the hospital's physical attitude. Hated it, period. There was talk within the past year of it closing d/t funding cuts and other financial problems. It'd really be a great loss for the poor and uninsured. Come on back to b'ham..there's plenty of peds positions at Children's!

    Kewl,
    That noc diff is hideous!!! Our noc diff is $3.75 and eve is $2.75. Seriously, what's keeping you in that area that's so endearing to your heart?? Come on down, the weather's nice (gets a little muggy in mid summer), and the cost of living is bound to be lower than there!!
