What are the earnings of an IV infusion RN???

  1. Just wondering if anyone knows what the salary is for an IV infusion RN is? This job not only includes starting IV's and PICC lines, but differs in that I would also be doing a pharmacy job of mixing medications. It's salaried, off on weekends and on call every other weekend. I would be flown to another state for a two week intense training and be oriented by the current IV infusion RN as well. I was told this job is not easy to come by, and also read the same thing here on allnurses.com. I would be working independently, but under the supervision of infectious disease physicians. I have no clue what the fair salary would be considering I am a 11 year experienced Med-Surg nurse very proficient in IV's and with charge nurse experience.

    Can anyone give me a ball park idea how much this type of nursing earns so I don't get short changed if offered a position??? The VP of nursing who interviewed me today said to keep in mind it's a salaried position when and if I am offered the job. My final interview may be as early this week or next with the Doctor who has the final say in who gets hired.

    Help! Anyone know what the going rate is for this job????
