    It is not fishy, I truely do make that much per year, here is how it breaks down:
    charge nurse pay: 3.00/hr
    shift diff (nites) 6.50/hr
    hourly rate 35.75/hr
    total _______
    45.25/hr x 40hrs weeks=approx 91k a year, I work very little overtime and make 1000 more in incidental pay.

    That is truly amazing. First off, we don't get charge nurse pay around here AT ALL and it SUCKS. Our differentials just went up to $2.00/hour on NIGHTS and we were pretty happy with that.
    We have friends that live in Austin and in (ick) Lubbock. Maybe we'll move.
    Even the cost of living...damn we just built a 1800 square foot home, 3 bedrooms, etc for $190,000!! Texas sounds real good.

    Area of work depends on Contract
    Pay depends on contract, from $18-25/hr plus fully furnished private housing, and utilities paid with Benefits, and starting, and completion bonuses.
    Apartment now is 2/2 with washer dryer, microwave, TV/VCR. Some with cable, phone, cooking utensils, and even maid service on one contract. But would give it all up for a great fulltime position with excellent benefits, and adequate staffing.

    I cannot believe that after 26 years as an RN you are only making 21.60/hr. That is pathetic. I hear that nurses in PA don't make all that much. You should move to TX. I have only 7 years experience and I make 28.00/hr. and will receive another raise next month. (6%increase).

    OK I can't remember the order?

    5 yrs experience all ER, and am the Nurse manager for evening shift, and make $20.88hr. Cleveland, Ohio.

    JFR, if I was a $16 an hour nurse at that TX hospital, and knew about someone else making 94,000? I would demand a raise......a big one, or quit and go elsewhere. It's amazing how we are allegedly worht only so much, yet some get what they want? Our shift differential is .75-1.00 and hour, and chrage/nurse manager diff 1.00hr.

    4. Just got a raise - $16.11/hr (no bene's, could not afford them). Also, 10% diff nights, 25% diff for Sundays, but no add'l pay for charge.

    Cost of living here is pretty high, seemed to sky rocket the day after the 2002 Olympics were announced. Nursing wages have not kept pace, but then I suppose it's like that everywhere else!!!
