I live in Kentucky, but work in Ohio. At our hospital (Christ), we make $18 an hour to start, plus a $4 an hour shift differential for night. There are bonuses available for working on your off days if you are called and they are desperate. Local Northern Kentucky hospitals are similar in their approach.
I had heard when I was near Browning, MT last year, you can earn up to $80,000 working for Indian Health Services. From what I understand, there is not a lot to do in/near Browning itself, so there is no place to spend that $80,000! For me, that is very appealing, since I can't keep a dime in my pocket! I do realize this was verbal info, given from a 'friend of a nurse' there, so I take it with a grain of salt.
Best wishes to everyone!
