    I work in central TX and just got the $1.00 survey Im up to $26/hr plus my CN pay of $2/hr. and I've worked off and on for FMC about 7 years...but no state tax is a help...PTO is good...I just hate TX.. made a little more in N. Cali but the cost of living ate that up!!!

    I have been unofficially offered a position at a privately owned facility in Greenville, tx. I have only a year of Med Surg experience but they are willing to give me some thorough training. What kind of salary can I expect them to offer in a privately owned one istead of the big companies will it be significantly less.

    I make a lot more with a private company but in return I found I had to sacrifice some benefits in the process. I dont get paid holiday pay nor comp time for working it of which my administrator doesnt tell any new hires unless we ask directly about paid holidays (Now I know always ask). Also although I am with the same insurance company as I was with Davita I pay 70-30 rather than the 90-10% and a deductible I didnt have before. I dont get that bit of a differential if I work way late on Saturdays anymore either. In the long run it balances out about the same. Only good thing is at least I get 50% match on my 401K that Davita doesnt contribute a dime to.

    Thanks for the information. I asked in interview and they have benefits blue cross blue shield not sure of how high it will be and they have pto and holiday pay so I guess I lucked out now I am just waiting on the offer for pay its in Greenville, TX and I was hoping pay didnt have to do with population bc its a small town LOL supposed to get the call today I just hope its reasonable.

    Hey Pudding pie are you still working at Fresenius how is it. What facility are you in you don't have to give the exact town . IS IT North Jersey or South Jersey. Do you know what the starting salary is for A NEW GRAD WITH NO EXPERIENCE?

    Wow. In Arkansas I worked dialysis and only made $13.44 an hour. I LOVED it but couldn't pay the bills.

    For a new grad its a tough market and the know it. It totaly depends on state, in Hawaii for instance its the best nursing pay in the state, in colorado it less that hospital nurses.

    I worked in Fresenius for 4 years from 2003 to 2007 and now I am currently working at DaVita for more than a year now. My salary at DaVita is way higher compared to FMC. One of the things that I don't like about FMC is their health benefits which is Blue Cross. In my own experience, Blue Cross sucks! Ever since I was hired by DaVita, I enjoyed their health benefits because I can choose from 3 different health insurances: Aeta, Cigna, and Group Health. With FMC, you are stuck with only 1 health insurance which is Blue Cross. But DaVita, on the other hand, has 3 options you can choose from. One thing that FMC stands out is their tuition reimbursement program if you want to go back to school. FMC has $5,000 tuition reimbursement benefit whereas DaVita can only pay up to $3,000 annually. I am in the Master of Nursing program and I have to postpone some of my classes due to DaVita's $3,000 annual tuition reimbursement which is quite low with my high tuition fees nowadays. FMC pays the hours that I went to seminar or conference related to nephrology nursing but DaVita does not.
