I never have any luck in this forum, but I'm trying again. I am moving to Louisville in May 2006. I've spoken with the nurse recruiters at all the hospitals and found that:
base pay is approximately 18.50 at all places
shift differentials are 10-15% with NO weekend diff
IS THIS RIGHT??? This is crazy in my opinion. I am currently in NC where the base is the same, but diffs are A LOT more. Weekend day diff is $10 by itself. I spoke with my nursing director and she couldn't believe the low differential Louisville offers. Does any place within an hour of Louisville offer better rates? I am certainly not greedy, but this is a huge difference. Please respond with your experience!
