hourly pay?

  1. I am looking online at salary websites and forums to get an idea of what I can expect in this specialty. How much are you guys making? Do any of you guys make 40+ an hour? Do you guys get benefits with the agencies you work for- retirement/health insurance... ?

    The hospice agency I work for is associated with a hospital. Our wage scale is the exact same as for an RN who works in the hospital. Also, benefits are the same as for hospital RN's.

    Our wage scale is very competitive to the other nursing opportunities in our areas.

    Where are you located in us? Also do you visit their homes or do you work at a hospital.

    I have been a hospice nurse for 11 years. The only time I've been paid more than the "base rate" was when the weekend team had trouble finding staff. That gig paid $50/hr and it was sweet! Otherwise, working overtime as a Travel Hospice Nurse I make $48/hr. $40/hr for a Hospice position is rare.
