Can I get some estimates on what hourly rate I might expect to be offered in Cleveland? I'm an RN with 15 years exp. Last 4 in CVICU (IABP, cardiothoracic & vascular recovery), BSN, CCRN-CSC. I expect pay rates will be lower than here in LA. However, im beginning to wonder if I can afford to live in Cleveland. Any info would be greatly appreciated, including estimates.
I don't know how Money calculates pay. I would guess that that was a fairly accurate snapshot of nursing compensation in Columbus. However, I would expect that amount includes all compensation - salary, o/t, as well as benefits.
I am sure that that is accurate salary for many Columbus nurses, but find it difficult to believe that it is average. The major hospitals start new grades in the mid-$20s.
