    I just got an offer today from a traveling nurse company that are placing nurses at University of Maryland Medical Center in Blatimore for a whole lot less than what you guys have posted here. The hourly rate was $22.85 an hour. Of course I turned down the job! Just an FYI.

    In my experience the BSN gets you maybe $1 an hour more.

    I am wondering if University of Maryland Medical Center offers a dependent tuition reimbursement benefit. Hopkins/Bayview does, not sure about other JH facilities. I've heard that they offer 100% for children of FT employees who go to UofMD school and 50% at other schools. Does anyone have a linke to this: http://www.bayviewjobs.org/employeeb...bursement.html

    I am currently a (10+ yr) scrub tech, finishing up my nursing test very soon, I want to b a circulator nurse, are the employers going to consider my scrub tech experience for my pay?? since "offically" im a new nurse. but not new to the o.r. which is a big differnce. because i get paid more than a new grad would get paid as a scrub tech.

    btw im in MD

    UMD no longer offers the dependent tuition benefit I believe. Howard County (part of the Hopkins system) does offer some type of tuition benefit to dependents but I don't know how much.

    as a traveler you usually make less bc they pay you housing, so what you make is after expenses

    I'm not sure if starting pay is different on different units, but as of last month I was hired as a new grad BSN in the icu at $26.63/hr at UMMC...

    This is a really late reply........4 years later. But just to give perspective from 2015. UMMC just re-established pay raises this year in our NICU. While I am a student nurse, I have gotten very friendly with a travel nurse from Southern VA. She states they are paying her 3x what she could make at home, hence why she is traveling. I assume the pay rates for Southern VA are lower for nurses then our general pay rates, but still the fact that the nurse is getting 3x that much, on top of what UMMC is paying the Travel Nurse Agency is crazy.

    I confirmed with another travel nurse, this one from Alabama, that she, too, is getting about 3x her pay to work in our NICU.

    They have hired approximately 15 new grads and we have many travel nurses as well.

    This is my 2nd career, and this is all is very strange to me.

    Hi Vigor,

    What is the starting salary currently for CN II at UMMC if you don't mind me asking? And also how do you like working there in the NICU as far as scheduling, patient-nurse ratio, etc..

    I recently listened to a presentation put on by someone working on recruitment and retention at UMMC; she indicated that all new grads make $28 and change/hr, and that this is not a secret. I believe they also make holiday/night/weekend differentials. I don't get the impression there is any room for negotiation, but all in all, it seems like a decent wage relative to the other major employers in the area, and the benefits (particularly for tuition) are pretty good imo.
