I live in upstate NY and work in OB/GYN. I have been on my floor for a little over a year and was a new grad when I started. I make 23.95 base and our differentials are pretty nice :-)

I make $27/hour per diem in upstate NY. Other hospitals in the area pay $32 - $35/hour per diem. Believe it or not, we make LESS than the nurses on other floors because so many nurses want to work in OB. Experienced nurses from other floors take a pay cut to come to OB! :confused:

The military is all salary. I think new LTs are starting out around $50K with all the housing allowances, free health care, etc. But you don't get paid overtime!

I work in Vancouver, Canada. I work in L&D now and I have been a nurse for 3 and a half years. I make $ 34.44 but I would make this if I worked any where else in the hospital as a nurse. It depends on your years of experience as a nurse. Shift differentials is extra $ 3.50 for nights and $ 2.50 for weekends plus double pay for OT hourly.

Cost of living in Vancouver is expensive. A decent home will start around

$ 600,000 + . Food is not too bad. Gas/transportation is expensive.

I make $43/hr doing 12 hour day shifts. I work in the Operating Room and just accepeted a position in L & D, where my pay rate will remain the same. I have 3.5 years experience as an RN. In addition there is a night shift differential of $7, and weekend diff of $5, and on-call spots. Although Southern California is one of the higher paying states... the cost of living here is very expensive. I've lived here all my life, and thought about moving...but the base salary for an RN is great!! I can't leave it

There are Indian Health Service Hospitals in AZ & NM paying OB RNs $40-$43/HR.. The cost of living in these areas is high but they will take a license from ANY state and have immediate needs (My girl just went out there).

i'm a new grad (and new rn) in labor and delivery here in nyc and i get paid a base salary of $35.31 an hour ($68,853.23 annually) and an additional $6,000 annually for working nights ($3.08 an hour).

hi ny nurse,

i'm hoping to ask for a little advice. i am thinking way ahead here as i wont start school for my bsn (accelerated ~1 yr program) until this summer but i was wondering what your process was for job hunting? how long did it take you and how did you find the market in nyc? i am really looking to work in l&d in a hospital in the nyc area but am worried that i will graduate with the clinical rotations (through school) as my only experience and i dont know if finding a new grad job in l&d in nyc (without experience) is like saying i would like to win the lottery. any thoughts/advice you have are greatly appreciated!!

thank you

I make $22.06/hr after 4 years. I came to the unit with NICU experience. Sad. I would probably make more if I quit and came back.

I'm in Idaho
