    Eastern Washington, spokane

    19.62/hr. Have not been here quite a year yet.

    2.40/hr night differential

    2.23/hr weekend diff

    1.25/hr charge pay

    .75/hr certification pay (CEN)

    Time and 1/2 for working holiday (up to 8 hrs) then double over 8,
    then 8 hours holiday pay for the holiday.

    16% more on base if working per diem.

    Flex pay for insurance...I actually get some back from that because I don't use employers med/dental.

    depending on the agency, I can work per diem about 2-3 hours away for 38-52 dollars/hr. (depends on time of day/week/etc.)

    Here in North Carolina pay ranges from $17.00 (new grad) to $25.00 per hour. At my facility pay is the same regardless of department. You can acquire more pay by climbing the clinical ladder.

    I am an ICU nurse with 12 years experience. I work in La. outside of New Orleans. I am 23.00 base with diffs on top of that. 2.50 for CCRN plus any night shift diff. On the weekends, I make about 33/hr for weekend nights. What a difference from around the country. I wish I lived in Los Angeles though..WOW..40/hr

    You also need to consider the cost of living in Los Angeles, which is probably easily 100% higher than Louisiana or Mississippi.

    I make $21.05 right now, that doesn't include the 5%shift differential for night shift. I am thinking about going Full time at a job that is further away from my home and would make less money. This job starts out at $16.59/hr. Because I have 5 yrs experience, I'd get paid an extra 7% so that brings my base pay up to 17.75/hr. They pay a 7% diff for 3-11 shift and a 12% sdiff for nights and every shift gets an extra 35 cents an hour on the weekends.. No differential for ICU setting and no differential for my BSN till I get to a certain point on the clinical ladder.

    But, where I am at now I am an ICU nurse but because our census is so low I get floated out to the floors so am not truly getting ICU experience. SO, that's why I am thinking of leaving my current job.

    I work agency evenings for $40-42 an hour in ICU. I think the new nurses on med surg start in the $15.00 range in Pittsburgh
