    I think the one at my hospital makes about the same as a tech give or take a buck. So $8-10 depending on work history.

    The unit clerks were I work top out at $19.00/hr. We are constantly short a unit clerk. I have been floated on a slow day to peds, and paid my RN wage to be a unit clerk. I have even been a unit clerk in my own unit on holiday RN pay. Kind of a nice change of pace to be a unit clerk for a shift, but I would think there is a cheaper way to do this.

    A good unit clerk is worth her weight in gold, IMHO.

    I remember one extremely busy floor I worked on. The unit clerk there practically ran that unit. She kept everything organized that was within her domain. And it was good. You never had to check up on things, ask for something twice.

    So a big thanks to all the unit clerks out there!
