    Hi, I used to work for a per diem agency, and the average pay for day shift started at $34/hr, then went up depending on the specialty. For the night shifts, starting pay was usually time and a half, and dependent on the need, went to double time. So for example a Tele nurse working night shift frequently was paid double time at $80/hr. Pretty lucrative. Some nurses would not take per diem shifts unless it was time and a half or double. They still got at least 3 shifts per week.

    I'm a new grad RN in Oregon. Two months after getting my license and still no job. Some leads but nothing solid. Is agency nursing a good idea for new grads?

    *** No it is not. Few agencies will hire new grads without experience. Though I have heard of agencies hiring new grads for things like flu shot clinics or blood donor sites.
    Agency nurses are expected to have lots of experience and be able to hit the floor running with minimal or even no orientation. I have been responsibe for an immediate post CABG patient 30 min after first setting foot in the hospital for the first time in my life as an agnecy ICU nurse.
