Noticed you are SE Pa, are you working in Phildelphia? A friend of mine is nursing super at a LTC facfility and she mentioned Phila nurses were doing ok. Some work three twelves and are up around 60K. They are commuting about 1 hr each way but seem to be ok with the drive.
If you are working in the Phila area, how is the hiring for fresh out of school nurses?

2.5 months of experience
Med/Surg (was an inpatient diabetic floor, but now they're changing to oncology........ )
$29.90/hr night shift
When going on the interview, I specifically told them I didn't want oncology or cardiac. Now look what I'm stuck with. I can't even transfer out until 6 months.
Nov 25, '02Occupation: Hospice clinical director Joined: May '02; Posts: 2,873; Likes: 26Something is really wrong when a nurse with 32y of experience, mostly ICU makes $21/h, and a new nurse with basically no experience makes almost $30/h.
Explain to me again why our experienced nurses get frustrated?!?

Nov 26, '02Joined: Jan '02; Posts: 5,673; Likes: 159I'm teaching now at a votech in Texas...took quite a pay cut from the hospital but have always wanted to try teaching.
At the hospital as a 25 year nurse, my ending base salary was $24..add a buck for charge and another for certification and shift diffs when appicable....I was around $30/hr on nights with benes.
Now I'm down to $20/hr but I don't have the hospital stress. Ask me in a year if it's worth it or not....I'm still going through some withdrawls...hehe.
