- Feb 13, '04 by heatherbless[PHP]that kind of money[/PHP]Quote from wv_nurse 2003probably cost of living higher/WOW!! Where are they paying that much?? Have you looked at facilities just across the river in Ohio? I can't believe that anyone is making that kind of money--unless the cost of living is significantly higher.
- Feb 14, '04 by renerianWe just hired two nurses who moved to Ohio from West Virginia and I could not believe how low their pay scales were. Come to Columbus!
- Feb 14, '04 by Chrislynn2003IT all depends on teh cost of living what you make. As a new grad, I make $22/hour, which is good for the area I live in.
- Feb 14, '04 by barefootladythe subject of our low wages has been discussed to death. with the medicaid cuts we will be paying the hospitals to work for them. I am so over this. I'm out of here,
- Feb 15, '04 by ucandoitQuote from barefootladyI just had an interview at a hospital in Huntington, WV and the starting pay quoted to me for all new grads was 19.80/Hr. SOUNDS GOOD TO ME!!!!!WHOOT! :hatparty:the subject of our low wages has been discussed to death. with the medicaid cuts we will be paying the hospitals to work for them. I am so over this.

- Feb 15, '04 by Blackcat99I use to work in Moundsville,WV as an LPN. The low pay wasn't the worst part. The worst part was the way nurses were disrespected by their employers.
- Feb 15, '04 by K O'MalleyI understand that the pay in Huntington is better than many other places in WV. It really stinks in Charleston. I understand that CAMC is also cutting bennies.
- Feb 16, '04 by PeytonGolly, moving from San Francisco to Elkins, I must admit the cost of living is SIGNIFICANTLY lower here.
I mean...stoopid-affordable. Our house payment (on 2 1/2 acres) is less than a new car payment!
Unheard of back home!
