I am an ER nurse looking to head out on an adventure to Alaska in the coming months. Has anyone worked AK? I received a first draft of a pay package based on a small rural center that seems fairly reasonable to me, but I'm not overly familiar with the area.
Job listings for full time employment advertise $32.57/hourly.
Here is the first draft of a pay package I have been sent:
Housing provided by the facility
$500 travel reimbursement (this will certainly need to be negotiated - flights to AK are far more than this)
$15.09/hr = ~$543.00/week (based on a 36 hr work week)
$129/daily Stipend = $903/week
Estimated weekly after taxes: ~$1365
OT rate: $46 for all hours over 36/week
Thanks for your input!
