Dec 3, '01Occupation: PROFFESSIONAL STUDENT Joined: Dec '01; Posts: 1I just graduated here in So Cal and I am making $23.00 an hour. Most new grads here start anywhere from 17.70 to 26.00 an hour. I can't believe how poorly nurses are paid across the US. No wonder no one wants to attend nursing school anymore. I really worry about the future of the nursing profession.

I would like to say I make more than most RNs. I do.
HAHA how do you like that RealNurse HAHA
Fact MOST RNs are lacking in common sence.
Fact MOST LVN know what is going on we just need a book smart
RealNurse handy to use (like a carpenter and a hammer) If you knew or saw half the stuff I have done or saw, my well-being would be taken.
I have worked with many brillant RN's but the schooling that they recieve lacks in TRUE pt care. Most of them have never turned a pt but they were good leaders
I will have to go along with kewlnurse on being outraged at your post Progeria. You can't even spell, so how can you have common SENSE? I won't even talk about your lack of diction. Consider your well being taken Progeria, I've seen most of it all, done most of it all...I've been a night nurse in the ER for 13 years, need I say more? Most of that time spent in the ER, was without the "benefit" of having an LPN or an aide to turn my patients. Believe me, my back can attest to the fact that my patients are well taken care of WITHOUT the luxury of having an LPN to do all my **** work.

Dec 26, '01Occupation: Registered Nurse with a Travel company and also do Local Agency contracts. Specialty: 28 year(s) of experience in ICU's,TELE,MED- SURG ; Joined: Dec '01; Posts: 349; Likes: 13I have been a Travel Nurse for a year and a Nurse for 23 years where the first 5 years were as a LPN mainly in Critical Care and the rest as a RN in the ICU for 20 years.
I make about $35/hr. average with my housing subsidy and my salary together which is ok for a Florida RN considering I have no kids, no husband and just moved home to Mom's. My car is paid for and her home was paid off about 14 years ago so my low bills make it an even higher wage.
I know I cold make much more working cross country but for now, this will be fine. To me it all has to do with how much you have left over after all bills are paid. I do pay in my Mom's home and pick up lots of restaurant tabs but I feel that when you come home after a long, hard shift and you know that there is a really great meal waiting and your clothes are all cleaned and hung up that for me this is so worth paying into her home and also, she loves the company. She's in her 70's and is healthy and I tell her how lucky she is to not be sick like these patients I take care of. She also enjoys the ability for me to drive her were she wants to go since she does not drive. So her social security plus my money makes for a comfortable life, financially.
