Salary in Community/Public HealthRegister Today!
- by zoprack May 22, '06Hello,
I was wondering if the salary is about equivalent to working in a clinic?
I am asking because I am leaned to think that nurses in that area would be making less because they are catering to ppl who are not all that well-off.
I am not expecting to hear that they get paid as well as CRNAs but I hope it's at least decent.

It's a salary position though, so they don't pay overtime pay, but you do get comp time.
I've been interviewing for a few positions lately, so I'm not actually working there at this time. Hope that helps a little!
