RN job market in Milwaukee

  1. I am relocating to the Milwaukee area and am wondering what the pay rate range is for three years' experience. I am also wondering about the overall job market. I have been working in hospice for two years and would be open to staying in that field or trying another area of nursing. Are there jobs available? What can I expect to make? Thanks!

    If you post this on the Wisconsin nursing section you would get more response.

    I'm in the Milwaukee area.

    There are jobs since we have several large hospital systems, also several hospice choices.

    Aurora Health Care starts new nurses out at 25/hr, and goes up from there
    Columbia St Mary's is 26 or 27
    And I'm not sure about Wheaton Franciscan

    We have Horizon hospice, I know a friend of a friend that works per diem there and I think it's about 33/hr but I'm not 100% sure.

    I'm on the north end of the area in a suburb and I started as an Rn in June at my preferred hospital with my ADN.

    With three years of experience you can expect around $26-28/hour plus shift diff in the hospital, LTC $25, home health $26-28 hourly, clinic $26-28

    Hope you enjoy Milwaukee! There are lots of RN job options here!

    By the way Horizon home health pays per visit, not hourly. They are just an OK company to work for. Allay home health, Seasons hospice both have great reputations!
