    Dear Seeking Info: You are correct, it does depend greatly on the
    region. I live in the Southeast, and did telephone triage for one
    of the large teaching hospitals in NC. When I resigned my job
    3 months ago, I was earning 46000+ annually. I was a State
    employee, whose salary was paid on a grading scale, and the amount depended on the length of time spent in the State system. I had been with the system over 6 years. If you need more information, please email me,

    I too work in the Southeast for a childrens hospital. They offer 14.00(hr) for new hire or new grad, with 2.75 evening diff and 3.75 night diff. I was hired during a desperate shortage and started at 15.50 (base rate). In my one year so far, I have received 3 raises which upped me to 17.25(base). I work nights now for close to 22 an hr. I COULD totally work from home and get paid 3.25 per call (I can feasibly do 8-10 calls an hour which could mean 25-30 bucks an hour from the comfort of my home).
    I enjoy my "break" from the kids so I prefer to actually go into the office to work.

    Hope this helps!
