- 0Jul 18, '01 by callnurseDear 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, [email protected].

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!
