    I'm still waiting to hear how much Indiana office nurses are making. If you're out there, please share your office specialty and salary range. My salary stinks!

    I interviewed for a Dr office job near Indy, but when I found out the pay was $9.50/hr, I said forget it! I have heard from other nurses here that drs office nurses do not get paid well. I will be making about $20/hr when I start home health, and it is in a small rural Indiana community

    Smarkley,
    Did you work in an OR before becoming an office nurse/private scrub for the surgeon? Or did he train you himself? Just wondering bec I am considering surgery.........

    I worked in the OR for about 1 1/2 years before I became a private...he had to train me on some aspects such as closing the skin, but I was familiar with the procedures and the instruments. If you are interested in the OR, you should look into it...I love it! It can be very challenging at times but the technology that the surgeons use is amazing. I find it very interesting work.

    I live about an hour from Indy! (noticed that is where you are from). Community Hosp is holding a 7 month training program for nurses interested in the OR. I am going to check it out. I have never worked at any of the Community hospitals. Are you familiar with them or this program?

    What a CHEAPscape of a doc! Good for that RN for quitting! :angryfire

    I am trying to get a travel nurse assignment to Indianapolis, Indiana by the end of June. Does anyone know a great place to go work in that city?
    I'm going there to spend the summer (maybe longer).
    Methodist is a great hospital.

    At Methodist in downtown Indianapolis, I started at 19.75/hr. More for evenings, nights and weekends.

    I guess I lucked out, I make......more than that........I think the going rate for nurses starting out in Indiana, at least in the Indianapolis area is around 21-22 dollars an hour though. I have interviewed for several jobs since taking the job I have, and I can't afford the paycut to go anywhere else. But, fortunately most of the time I love what I do, and I love my DON!

    I guess I will have to leave this state when I finish school No wonder the Indpls star talks about the "brain drain" of this state. I did not pay for this education to earn 9-15 an hour.
