WOW Can't believe SOME nurses make such good money. I'm trained in three areas of nursing, currently hold a degree and am doing Post-grad Dip. towards a Masters. Worked in nursing on and off since early 80's and am currently on salary of $41.5K Don't know what this is equivalent to in hrly rate - maybe $19.00/20.00 ish???
Not great, but not too bad for NZ.
HOWEVER - I AM PLANNING TO MOVE TO TEXAS IN THE VERY, VERY, VERY NEAR FUTURE!!!
So move over dplear - here I come!

Apr 20, '01Joined: Apr '01; Posts: 37I am a NEW GRAD GN (well, will be in 2 weeks)
I live in the Tampa FL area, and here is what the hospitals are giving us:
$15-$16 an hour
night shift diffs about $3 or 20% of pay.
I have a position as a "clinical nurse resident" for ICU. I will work 2 12's and have 2 8 hour class days a week, have all tuition/books paid for plus get paid while I am in class (critical care internship). I'm just happy to get a position in the unit, since I want to work in Tampa General's ER one day! (level 1 trauma baby!)
My long term plan is to work per diem or agency, since the benefits around here are not that great, and my husband is a county employee (firefighter) with GREAT benefits! Per diem ICU pays anywhere from $25-$50 an hour from what the nurses have told me.

get 1.00/hr for night shift .70 cents/hr weekend differential (if I remember correctly,on maternity leave at present). Also get 100.00$ a month for degree, and 200.00 for masters degree if in staff nurse position.
Have benefits as well-dental,long term disability,prescription drug plan etc.
We have a province wide union in Manitoba. Our current contract goes to next year, but there is talk of opening up our contract earlier, to get more$ as we are losing nurses to other parts of Canada and the States. Jan
