We are planning to move to Kentucky near Murray in the next year. Could anyone tell me what realistically am RN would make as an hourly wage in Kentucky?
Currently I work in critical care, tele and ACLS, nights 7p-7a. I work as a per diem nurse not needing health benefits. I also pick up straight Med/surg, ICU. I am open to almost anything.
I have 6 years experience, Nursing is second career, I am a male, retired from the NY State Health Depart and at 53 went back to Nursing school. So all you "olders" ones out there thinking about it, it can be done, the rewards are amazing. I can't say this to loud...but... I'd do this job if they didn't pay me.(of course the money is nice, an ugly fact of life).
Any info as to salary, job outlook, etc. would be helpful.
