Hi, I am a nurse with 8 years experience in a med/surg telemetry unit. Will be moving to Albuquerque this summer. Can someone please tell me what the range of pay is for nurses in New mexico or what someone with my experience might expect to make. Hourly base rate? Would appreciate any info. Thanks:trout:

Also regarding UNM Hospital, I was Staff there for a couple of years; one does NOT need to join the union, as NM is a right to work state. The union is not very strong but the pay scale is great and encouraging because of the ladder pay scale. In the ladder pay scale, you are paid a little more for BSN, and higher education, and for participating in committee's and teaching opportunities.
I wish I had that option in the stifling facility in my current area (and I might consider being "staff").
Just because one is a student, does not mean their opinion and research is not valid. I think the opportunity we have here, on AlllNurses.com, is invaluable to discuss issues and ideas. So, lets not poo poo each other’s opinions, please.
