    I've been an RN for 26 yrs. I work in a GI Lab and assist as well as perform sigmoidoscopy (14,000 since '95) I work Mon-Thurs and the rate of pay is $33.95, 6 weeks vacation, 5% 401K employer contribution (but no pension)... health insurance and dental. The trouble is that housing is very expensive . estimate you must be working full time at $33.00/hr and pay 30% of your take home for rent for a 2 bedroom apartment... 3 bedroom house built in 1920 in North Oakland (near Berkeley) on my street sold for 645,000.. duh... soon we'll be living in Modesto and flying in to work???

    Benefits and tuition reimbursement
    Best yet-I work in a hospital environment as an LPN and work independently. I guess I'm not doing too bad.

    I am a new nursing student in Texas, I havent even started my pre-nursing courses yet, and I was wondering how many people get tuition reimbursement? I went to school three years in Art before hearing the call of nursing, and I still have substantial debt from that--just wondering if there's any chance the debt from this education will be lessened

    I have been in the Navy for 12 years, 3 of which have been as a nurse. But those other 9 years help my pay considerably.

    Labor and Delivery
    3 years as a nurse.
    $4400 a month. (Depends on where you live as well. Housing allowances.)


    I will be starting a night time per diem L&D position soon.

    It is roughly around $33.00 and hour.

    Or $395 a shift.

    Nice cash!
