First travel assignment-Going to Seattle?

  1. 0 I'm looking at a float ICU position at a level I trauma in Seattle. The travel company is offering $24/hr, $1350/mo for housing stipend, and $35/day for M&IE. Are pay rates ($24/hr) really this low for a traveler? This is close to what I make as staff in Utah! which is one of the lowest paying states!

    Washington state generally pays around $35-37/hour. I can't give you specifics for Seattle, but Vancouver, WA is just over the state border for me, and I get paid the same there as I get in Portland, OR.

    Your hourly rate is low because of the housing stipend. The more perks you get the less your actual hourly rate will be.
