Hi I am currently in LTC and thinking about getting back into acute care. I use to work at JCMC and didn't really like how things were ran. I was thinking about trying Wellmont but wanting some insight. What is their pay like? Shift diff? Benefits? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

I am not sure on your experience, but if you are new, both systems start out with a base pay of $18/hr. It goes up slightly from there based on experience, whether you work days or nights, what unit you are on (i.e. it's more for more critical units). I went to school with a girl that started at $24/hr as a new grad because she worked nights, had experience as a CNA/PCT, and she worked on a telemetry/cardiac unit.
