How do CT/MRI tech salaries compare to Medical Imaging RN's?

  1. 0 I make more in Medical Imaging than I did on Med/Surg. I had ACLS while on Med/Surg but it is required for Medical Imaging and therefore, I am told, the higher hourly rate.

    I am the only RN in the outpatient center. I'm just curious how CT or MRI Techs hourly rates compare to the medical imaging nurse?

    I also work at an outpatient MRI center, and I believe our techs make around $22-25/hour depending on experience, degrees, etc. I am not a tech, nor an RN yet, so this is just an estimate.

    Thanks that was along the lines of what I was thinking.

    We have an MRI tech who has been there 17 years. She is wonderful, friendly, kind, very nice to work with...her Mom is an RN on a medical floor and she (the MRI tech) mentioned once that nurses in medical imaging make so much more than they do. That just kind of surprised me. But I guess it's true if you consider $5 an hour much more. I think I do.
