    $22.80hr with more for differentials
    ER - Fast Track
    Same hospital 12 years with 6 in ED
    Most other ED RNs make $18.00 hr
    I was fortunate that I took time off to upgrade to Case Manager then returned to ED with only a 3% loss in wage!

    At a glance, it's tougher to compare annual wages with hourly wages. How much is allowed for shift differentials, weekends, etc?
    As a staff nurse in a clinic setting (no weekends,holidays or shifts), I make 32.33/hr after 22 yrs of experience for annual wages of 67k; if I worked on the floor, I could report annual wages of about 75k allowing for differentials (which may lead people to believe my hourly wages were about 36./hr--a little difference!!

    1. RN/BSN
    2. 3 yrs
    3. Home Health/ per visit
    4. Fort Worth, TX
    5. $75,000.00 easy. Could be much more if I chose to do more than 40 visits/week.

    I get medical insurance and a week's vacation as long as I average 32 visits/week. I get to make my own hours, and best of all, get to spend quality time with my patients! I don't miss the hospital one bit.

    I put in about 38 hours/week, and can choose to work as little or as much as I prefer! I can't imagine doing anything else!

    position: RN, night supervisor (okay i am the only person in the office at night)
    Years 20+ (paid my dues, done my time...)
    area : Telephone triage/telehealth
    hourly wage: 19/hr + 2 something/hr shift dif
    I have worked in a bunch of areas, I don't want to go back to any of them, and frankly your wouldn't want me back in most of them. I was not very good at bedside nursing. Although I was a great hospice nurse, and good at triage.
    You were right this is an interesting thread.

    Your grammer horiffic.
    I for one am glad that I do not have your 'type" around me anymore. It is one reason I left the LPN-RPN "role" behind and became a RN. The hopsital I work in only employs RN's. It is one of the reasons I am there.
    True ignorance is scarey. Your type - which sounds like a mixture of ignorance and a inferiority complex is really scarey.
    I am also leaving the LPN role behind, but not for the same reasons that you stated here. I am a very competent nurse and want to further my career. I believe that I can serve my community better as an RN. You were right when you say true ignorance is scary, but there are as many RN's who fit that description as LPN's. You proved it when you made the statement that you changed positions to keep from working with them. Every member of the health care team is important... from CNA's on up. Get a grip! In this business everyone is expendable, and being that you claim to be more educated as an RN....well, act like it!

    2.Years as a nurse.
    3.Area of work.(M/S,ER,LTC,etc.)
    4.Current hourly wage.
    This should be interesting. Thanks.
    I was a staff RN in MICU/SICU with 4 years experience making 17.00 an hour. I became a travel nurse and I now make 31.00 an hour and do it right by home. My old Mgr. stated that they could not compete with these wages but I explained to her that she was competing with these wages because I was working right along side travel nurses making those wages and receiving benefits. If they would pay staff more we would not flee.

    I have been an RN for 8 years and work as a circulating nurse in the operating room of an ambulatory surgery center in middle Tennessee for $19.30/hr. I have a verbal contract to work 4 eight-hour days a week with benefits, but the actual time worked varies from 4 to 12 hrs/day. depending on the surgical schedule and whether we have adequate staffing on a given day. For the sake of efficiency (translation--money), we are minimally staffed, and we all know that if anyone calls in sick, the rest of us are going to have a long, stressful, peanut-butter & cracker day (no breaks or lunch). Yes, we have "PRN" people, but the majority of them can only work on certain days. That means we usually have to make do with who we have. I love my job, but would prefer to work regular hours! I don't have the answers as to how, but it seems it could be managed better.
