    Base pay in Wichita is $16 or $17. It's changed so much in the last few years I don't remember. Also, I don't think any facility pays an ICU diff.

    Yikes! That sounds pretty low to me.

    I know base wages are being adjusted again. And, yes, base is low. KS is one of the lowest paid states in the country.

    Wow. Agency work is almost double that out there. Crazy.

    So how much experience do you need to do agency work? And does anyone know pay rates for travel RN's?

    Minimum of 1 year. Travel rates vary quite a bit depending on where you want to go, the kind of housing you are looking for, etc. It's been a while since I've done a travel assignment as I usually do local contracts these days, but I enjoyed it for the several years I did. Agency rates I spoke of were for per diem work. Best of luck!

    Might check out a little north and west. Pay seems better out there, but I don't do ICU. There may be openings.

    I am thinking about moving back to Kansas next year. Can anyone give me an idea of the salary range for chronic dialysis nurse. Have 16 years experience.

    Can anyone tell me anything about the hospital in Hutchinson? I've been approached about taking an assignment there. Was wondering what the nurse/pt ratios were or any info about working conditions.

    Thanks

    Hutchinson Regional (used to be called promise regional [and was hutchinson regional before that]) pays $19.28 starting in ICU with no previous experience.
