  1. Let's see what everyone is doing here. I'll start...
    Palm Springs 36/hour average rate. Any other takes willing to post and brag!

    Well, I'll post with uncertainty.

    I'm looking at being a travel nurse in NYC and they're offering $25-$28 an hour. I thought this was kind of low (esp. for a travel nurse...) and someone was kind enough to confirm that for me here. It's hard to find answers, though!

    Anyway, I'm glad you're making a good rate!

    I was offered $40/hr from Fastaff for LA 3 different hospitals. I am fortunate because I found that same payrate here in Fl. Actually it is $40.50/hr. It's a local agency contract and the hospital wants me to extend. This is going to be a lucrative new year from what I can see.:spin:

    what part of Florida? I'm looking at relocating to the Tampa area - Tampa General is a level one, wonder if they hire local travel nurses? Last I read, they hire at top rate.... about $50/hour - for Florida, that's not too shabby.

    $37/hr and 2K/month tax free housing stipend in Ventura, CA. That's a total of about $50/hr.

    forgive me, but agency or travel - what's the differene? Traveling nurses are WITH agencies, no? I'd like to know the difference so when I move I can make an informed decision on my options, locally, for work. Thanks!

    I'm at 35/hr where I'm at now, and let me say that I'm looking at my next assignment options in other places and am disappointed...even large metro areas aren't paying even 30/hr. Maybe it's the company I'm with, which surprised me as its one of the larger, older ones. Go figure.

    That was as an RN, but per diem agency and not travel contract.

    And what about housing and expenses? As an LPN, that salary is just fine, but what are they actually covering? And what type of company is this contract with? Does not sound like a hospital setting at all, but more like some type of office.

    What else are they going to cover for you?
