    I started a month ago in Vegas. My starting salary is 23.38/hr. There is also shift differentials. If you work nights, it's an extra $2.00, weekends is an extra $1.00. If you work all three weekend days, you get paid for 40 hours.

    I wouldn't advise working at Valley or Desert Springs. The nurses there were trying to strike, and I've heard terrible things from agency nurses who have worked at Valley.

    I graduated last May, and I started working last month on a med/surg floor. So far, the management is supportive and most of the other nurses are too. I have a great preceptor. That makes a big difference. I have to do 2 years with this hospital because they paid my nursing school tuition and other fees. I don't know if I want to stay with this type of nursing, but it is a good foundation.
