we get paid in sunshine and oranges :)

it depends also on the level of care and your experience. i have a nurse friend who works heart surgery icu and makes $37/hr on night shift... he's been a nurse for less than 10 years. the other ppl in the unit have been RNs for longer and make more *or so i've been told*

those of us at the bottom of the totem pole who started off at $22 straight out of school (base pay) are making about $29 now with night differential, plus a little extra when we work weekends. :)

good luck!

You may be able to get in the $30 range in places like Miami, Tampa, Orlando and some other south Fl cities. Outside of there you may be out of luck. In my area, RNs at the big hospital are capped at $35 or so. Of course that does not include differential. However, the highest most places will hire you in at is their mid-range. Good luck!

Yes ... Let's all remember basic principles of "safe computing."
