    Interesting. When this thread first started in 2012, the pay people stated seemed to be higher than what recent posts show. Gotta wonder if its the massive glut of Nursing students out there pushing down wages.

    That may be the case!

    TX - $10.92 base/$1 evenings/$weekends
    This is my last semester of nursing school so I am not complaining. All my co-workers and education department keeps mentioning to me to go for extern once the winter months roll around which would bump it up to $15/hr
    Let's hope that happens!

    Jacksonville, FL varies due to many hospitals but my mom is a PCT/Unit Secretary and I been told pay for new PCT is about $12-13 per hour with the common $1-2 differential pay. A nursing student (which I'll be here in 2016) can work as a PCT/PRN after their first year of nursing fundamentals and usually start at $11-12 and usually gets half the differential, or sometimes the same differential. I'd say highest range would be $15-17 and you get maxed out after about 20yrs of working as a PCT, then you get anywhere from 400-800 annual bonus depending on the hospital and your work ethic. Some hospitals may not give a bonus even if you are maxed out. Some don't even give 1% raise for maxed out employees to keep in balance of the cost of living.

    PCT is a great job though for nursing students who are trying to get a foot in the door. Down here it's all work ethic and who you know that determines your job and pay.
