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
Jun 22, '02Joined: Mar '01; Posts: 2,730; Likes: 602I 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.
