I have read many posts regarding pay rates. However, once deductions and such have been taken out, what are you left with post tax, benefits, etc. Can you tell me the state or province you are in... Read More

    Long term care RN, work 8 hrs night on Fri, and 12 hrs night on Sat and Sun. Bring home around $1000/ 2 weeks. have $200 out for insurance and every tax imaginable out. This facility also has pay in leiu of benefits. If you don't want ins, vacation pay, etc, then they add 15% to your base pay. In this area there are places that pay a little more and places that pay a little less. As you have all said we are all underpaid for knowledge, and responsibility we have.

    I'm sorry kewl, I know that must be tough. I'm living about 15 miles from the town where I grew up. Although everything's generally the same, I hate it here because I'm not there. Hubby loves it here cuz it's the house his deceased mom so dearly loved. I try not to let him know it's the house his dear wife so deeply hates. I hope everything works out for you!! ((((kewl)))

    1400 every 2 weeks, I am an RN working in a nursing facility as a QI Nurse/Nurse Manager. I have been a nurse for 18 years.

    Believe me - you pay stagnates the longer you've been a nurse and the longer you've been out of the hospital.

    Wage stagnation coupled with not retirement fund like police officers and fire fighters are two additional reason to not become a nurse.

    Corporate non-hospital position x 2 years: take-home pay is about $1250 q2weeks after taxes, medical, parking, and my 13% contribution to my 401(k) are all deducted. No raise or Christmas bonus this past year post-Sept. 11--holding out good thoughts for next year!

    Staff nurse in a Chicago city hospital--work 72 hrs q 2 wks. Net pay after medical, dental, parking, 401 K is roughly $1300. It's not really all that good for the 5th most expensive place to live in the country, comparatively speaking

    Salaried I bring home (my gross is around 2400.00)~1750.00 after taxes q2weeks, M-F, no weekends, no call. I do however get to set my own hours, so I go and come as I please. I do miss my OT and my call pay. But the no weekends makes up for that I guess....

    My last check (2 years ago) was : Gross $2087, Net $1082, Total taxes $661.50; Union dues $19.50; 401K $313. My former co-workers have since got a raise, but I don't remember the percentage. Medical and dental were covered by the hospital.

    Lately I've been doing fairly well..only because we are so short staffed and I've been doing lots of OT with "bonus pay" of 6 bucks an hour. When I get both of those I am making a lil more than 40 bucks an hour Worked too much OT and now I am sick though, so there is a down side to it :/

    GEEEEEEZZZZ!!!! You have got to be kidding me!!!!!! $3000 and more!!!!?????!!!!! The MOST I have ever made in the last four years of being a nurse in OK, MO, and ARK, was probably $1200, and that was the ODD paycheck on the fifth week of the month when no insurance was taken out!!!! Right now, I am making about the same as I have for the last year..... sixteen something an hour plus night shift diff and weekend dif. somewhere around $950 q2weeks. Surely to goodness the cost of living here isnt that much less!!!!!
