    I only know about the pay in ICU, I believe you need 1 yr ICU experience to work agency. The pay is $45 to $50 an hour.
    This can make a huge difference depending on your current pay level. I know nurses who took the ICU course after one year of working and now work for agency.
    When they work for their home hospital at level 3 salary, they get about $25.00 /hr, so it can make a big difference.
