    $62,000 w/ shift diff, OT and occassional charge differential. We are a unionized hospital. I just change to a .8 position, in a RHB unit, so will not get paid the differential for vacation time, etc, that I would have gotten at a FT position, and there is much less OT in this unit (but I can almost always go the the bathroom within 20 minutes of needing to go, I often acually get to eat dinner, I am usually only responsible for 8-9 patients instead of 16). So I make less $, but I live longer, and can actually occassionally hold a patient's hand when they really need it. I graduated nursing school at the age of 52, and I knew what I was getting into - I've working in this hospital for 30 yrs, tho not in a clinical capacity. I have a BA in English and an MBA and I get more personal satisfaction out of my Associate's in Nursing!

    This is my opinion only, I work in Ontario and can not complain about my pay, I am not unionized and hold a management position. have been a nurse for 6 years and have worked quite hard, and had to float for a while till a FT position came my way, but refused to get bitter over that. However, to all those that think that they are underpaid, well there are several choices, change your job and look for something that pays better or stop complaining if you don't do it. As you move up the grid with your seniority the pay is not bad, considering that one does not have to really be tested for competency and skill, yet would get pay increases regardless...

    As well, lets face it, if you went into nursing to get excellent pay you have made a wrong career choice, I would hope that nursing was a choice related to other reasons and not financial compensation only. Comapre yourself with other (same education level) individual and you will find yourslef much better off than many...

    I am presently a traveler, RN working in ER. I have 36 years
    experience and on this assignment I make $24/hr. Next assignment is contracted for $25/hr. Bonuses and housing stipend helps to raise the annual income.
    I will definitely be looking into TX - anyone know how other hospitals pay down there?? For the kind of money that is being paid at Texas Childrens I would quit traveling- retirement is only 6 years away and I can handle the traffic for that long!!!!:
