    Hi,

    I used to work Pediatric ER (level 1 trauma center) and I did IV's, cath urines, triage pts, and vital signs. I also assisted with traumas, LP's, and any other procedure that required assistance. Starting salaries can vary from hospital to hospital. I believe at my hospital they start new grads at ~$14 per hour with full benefits. I loved every minute of it! I recently transfered to the surgical prep unit in the same hospital (no holidays & no weekends) but I still work prn in the ER.
