PRN pay

  1. Hi all, I am looking to pick up some prn work but was wondering what I should expect to make per hour. I work CVICU, 1 year experience. I will be done with checking off on taking fresh post-op hearts next week. I make almost $40 an hour when i do overtime so I would like to make about the same with a prn position. Do you think that is realistic with my background and experience? I know it depends on where you live also so I'm also posting in my home state thread as well. Thanks!

    For most places I know around me (new england area) per diem nurses do get more an hour, somewhere between 5-10%. Where you work in CVICU id expect youd get critical care diff also

    The per diem pay rates in Southern NJ are pretty competitive. Most hospitals down here are unionized, which helps. You can view local contracts for various hospitals at Health Professionals & Allied Employees |
