    I've been doing some serious job hunting. Here's what I've found. Tampa, Florida pays approx. $30/hour for nurses plus.
    Houston, TX pays the same. Hattiesburg, MS pays $19.20 per hour with 7 years experience (I'm quoting here). California pays from $24.00 - $30 an hour depending on where you live.
    The real scoop is the cost of living. Unbelievable cost of living in CA as well as state taxes. Florida has no state tax, neither does TX. MS has very very low cost of living, but not enough to off-set that low of pay. There you have it.

    ICU, MS, ER, Psych, LTC, Rehab and a little OR (They call me FloatGuy)
    Typically $30-37/hr (made about $90k last year)
    Agency work in Eastern Kansas
    Pretty Good Benefits including 401k, health dental vision indemnity insurance, short and long term disability, about 7 days paid vacation a year, etc.

    Top rate I ever made was $60/hr ($40 @ time and a half due to OT)

    On the flip side. A staff nurse working hospital job in Topeka is bringing in about $15-24/hr with similar or fewer benefits.

    Not my highest pay, but I am happy at my current job, I am the Med Rec Coordinator and the Infection Control Nurse, I only work prn on the floor. It became hard for me to work the floor d/t arthritis, and was lucky to find the oportunity to do what I am doing now.
