Utah RN pay, Salt Lake City area - page 5

Why are the RN salaries lower than other similar sized Western cities? Denver pays more why? Please do not say cost of living, because Intermountain does not take cost of living into consideration... Read More

    Yep. I'm moving from GA back home to UT and I'm taking a $6/hr pay cut... I'm making more than I did when I left so I'm looking at the silver lining to try and stay positive. Intermountain is top dog and they set the bar. Overage of nurses still the case. To give you an idea a hospital nurse will likely be paid 21-25 at most and that range is for 0-4 years experience.

    Can anyone speak of the market conditions for nurses in the southern part of the state - specifically St George? Are they any different than SLC?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone who works at Primary Children's Hospital can tell me if there are differentials for the nurses? I know that the base starting pay is $22.51 an hour, but do their hourly wages increase for night shifts, weekend shifts, and holidays? Thank you!

    They do offer a shift differential but I was told that it isnt much, dont expect more than a dollar or two. Someone may be able to correct me, but I am pretty sure that all IHC hospitals work the same.

    I left IHC a year ago. The issue with shift differentials at the time was that they were a percentage of one's hourly pay, rather than a straight amount per hour. So a new grad at the bottom of the pay scale not only earned less pay, but their shift differential was lower than a more experienced nurse. Not sure if this is still accurate. I believe there was a weekend differential of maybe 50 cents/hour.

    Holiday was time and a half, but in a sneaky way. For example, let's say you work night shift after Thanksgiving dinner. Your whole holiday was ruined, but you're only getting time and a half during the 7p-12a portion of that shift, when it was literally the day of the holiday. You'd have to also work the night shift before the holiday to get that 12a-7a portion at holiday pay rate and thus end up with 12 full hours overall of holiday pay.

    Hope that makes some sense
