    I have not personally worked in Arkansas so I am not familiar with the facilities, but you can probably expect to make $18-20/hr.

    I would expect that area of Arkansas for 10 years experience that you will probably start around $35 hr. I know that one of the big hospitals in little rock starts new grads at $25 hr. And that area of Arkansas is pretty comparable to LR economic wise, if not better.

    Thanks for the reply, Is that 35 the basepay wow, , without shift differential or with shift differential? we cant expect this in dallas.. I am trying some jobs in mercy, northwest and washington in NW arkansas, I never thought they will offer 35 IN NW AR,

    That pay is weekend with shift diff, I have a friend that works in the area. She said average was around 28 with experience.
