    I started at $7.10 an hour in 1984. I think pay has improved a bit.
    So that's about $13.14 an hour today if you adjust for inflation.

    I work in Mansfield, Ohio and my base starting pay for the SICU was $19.95/hour. I get an extra $0.25 and hour for my BSN. Night pay is an extra $3.00/hour and that is from 3p-7a. So on nights I make $23.20/hour.

    In Kansas. Just signed on as GN for 18.00 plus 19% nights plus 24% weekends, so weekend nights aren't bad at 43% more than the starting wage.
