    are you an RN? The pay seems low to me and I am in Texas too. We have differentials, but we discourage doubles and no one is scheduled to work doubles. There is a diff for 3-11 p and 11-7 p. Also for weekends IF you work more than the 2 required by everyone. Another diff is paid if you work outside your service line.

    Just a thought, here in Australia - Basic pay plus 50% loading from midnight Friday to Midnight Saturday. Basic Pay plus 75% loading from Saturday Midnight to Sunday midnight. Weekday nights Basic plus 15% loading, and
    Afternoons Basic plus 12.5% loading.
    This is for Most areas of nursing, including Aged Care!
    Basic for RN at the moment in Aged Care is only AU$21.40 per hour!
    How does that compare with USA - should I think of transfering?

    OUCH! At our hospital you get $3.00 if you work only an occasional weekend. $5.00 if you commite to one weekend day a week and $10.00 if you work every weekend like this poor child in Texas. You guys need to raise a stink!

    Our weekend and off shift differentials are only .75 and 1.00, but it seems our base pay is higher. We also have Baylor...they work 2 12 hour shifts and get paid an extra 8 hours..the 12's are on weekends.

    thats kind of extreme! I guess i should be greatful for the shift diff that we get on the weekends. weekdays on night shift i think its $3.50 and from 7-3pm weekends it's like $3.50, from 3-11 p its $5 and the best yet is 11-7 a its $7.

    Yes my hospital pays a 4.00 an hour weekend diff, 3.oo for eves and 3.50 for nights. You are clearly not getting paid enough.

    Since you work those 32 hrs in such a short time, do you get paid for 40 hrs(ie the Baylor plan is what it was called when I did that in LTC years ago)? If you get paid for 40 hrs, that may be why you don't get shift diff. We didn't get shift diff either. I now work for the State in group homes. LPNs and direct care staff get 50 cents/hr Mon-Fri if you work any time between 6pm and 6 am. RNs get $1.00 or more. On weekends, everyone gets paid shift diff for any hour worked on the weekends.

    Shift diff = 15% of base pay for hours worked between 1500-0700.
    Weekend diff = 25% of base pay for hours worked between Fri 2300-Sun 2300.

    We get both diffs if we work weekend nights.

    For me to move to a day slot would mean a 30% pay cut due to lack of diff.

    I work weekender program meaning that I work EVERY weekend but get every 8th weekend off. Any weekend hours I work I get an extra $5/hour over and above any other differentials. For us, it's $4/hour nites, $1.50/hour weekends.
