Realistic take home pay each week

  1. 0
    Can a traveling RN realistically be able to bring home (net) each week at least $1,000?

    Will find my own housing, no car rental or medical insurance needed, etc. - will take care of all that myself (well, some of it via my husbands retirement benefits).

    Trying to work on a half-way realistic budget for the future. My spouse won't have a guaranteed income, other than his pension.

    Thanks!

    I am on my second travel assignment and, by finding my own housing, I clear approximately $1,500 a week in Upstate New York. So, yes, it IS possible to earn $1,000 a week! Good luck!

    I had last 13 week assignment in Tulsa OK and taking the housing stipend I also cleared 1500-1600 weekly. My extended stay hotel was 180 weekly.

    Thanks for the info! I called one of the agencies today and she said roughly $40/hr (housing stipend) for a location somewhere in south Texas as an example. Of course, tons of variables which I know there are.

    Really having to work a little bit to convince my husband this is doable! We live well below our means but still a little nervous about the unknown and losing part of our income when he retires. No matter how many times I tell him that if others can do it, so can we he still gives me that look. ;-)

    A lot of it depends on the area - but $1000 per week without housing should be do-able with about 90% of the contracts you see out there. Typically housing is about $6-10 per hour (depending on area). So if a job pays $30 with housing, it would be $36-40 without.
