I don't know anyone hiring. The starting rate at IHC is around 21.80 per hour (check their website). I am not sure other going rates. We have a lot of nurses here - maybe that is why the salary is a lower than other area.
The area is saturated and if it weren't for the fact that we have to move back I wouldn't. The pay is about $25-28 which they based that off of my years as a nurse, and I have 7 years exp. No one is really hiring due to the fact every hospital system seems to have their own nursing program and they hire their own grads.
