Specializes in Wound Care. Has 1 years experience.

I'm in Los Angeles

1st job Mental Health/Drug Detox $23 per hour no benefits but amazing 10am-6pm schedule with no weekends

2nd job Adolescent Mental Health super crappy pay at $12 per hour but I LOVE the staff and clients so I stay on PRN and pick up a few over night shifts per month.

3rd job Home Health/Wound Care. $25 per visit, no benefits, no mileage, but I set my own schedule and since I am a single mom I can be home by the time my daughter is out of school. . I see about 25 patients per week. I will more then likely leave my first job for this job in a few months since wound care is where I really want to be.

I been working in the Dallas area for almost 20 years. Right now I make $21/hr and when I started I began at $18/hr.

Not much in 6 years, but that is because many times you would get "pay freezes" that would go for several years.

Specializes in Public Health. Has 5 years experience.

Home care in Ontario, Canada. $17.50 - 21.00 per visit (depends on the visit) plus $.40 per kilometer. I average 2 visits per hour and 80-100 kilometers per day.

I also get to sleep in, set my own schedule and still make it home with enough time to make dinner :) Certainly not complaining.
