    Paradise Valley Hospital
    Children's Hospital

    Also check out rent and mortgage info before you have your decision made. The pay doesn't match the cost of living very well.

    How much is the hourly pay
  8. by   KRVRN
    AROUND $20 new grad, $25 experienced for staff nursing in the Sharp system (the biggest in the city). Scripps about the same. Kaiser, VA and UCSD pay a little more from what I've heard. I believe most of the hospitals are within a few dollars either way of each other. More with differentials.
