I am new to the forum. I just moved back up to NY from Orlando Florida. I am an experienced RN-C (over 2 years). I have an ASN degree. In Florida I started at $17.05/hr as a GN in 2002, and was making $18.75/hr base before I moved. I was working the night shifts - 7pm-7am, and every other weekends. In Florida, we got between 15-33% more for differentials for nights and weekends and a little higher for holidays. My salary did include benefits and 401K, ect. I made a total of $41,000 last year working the night shift. I currently live in Long Island, Nassau county, and was wondering if anyone can tell me how much I will make working in one of the local hospitals in Nassau county? How much an hour? how much are the night differentials? How much a year? I am hoping to work for one of the North Shore hospitals, hopefully on a post surgical womens unit (if they have a unit like that, or mother baby), which is where I worked in Florida. I was also wondering how do the night differentials work, are they a % of what you make or do they give you more/hr? Any help will be greatly aprreciated. Thanks.
