Lakeland Regional Medical Center used to have a weekenders only shift with a differential of about 30%. That has now changed. The weekender shift is now weekends plus one day during the week, and I'm not sure how low the weekend diff dropped, but it's nothing near 30%. Resp therapists just got a 10% raise. RN's start out around $22/hr. Hope that helps.

Tampa General hospital in Tampa, All Children's Hospital in St. Pete and Morton Plant Hospital has NICU, if you are interested. At Morton Plant, starting salary for new grads is about $20. Not sure about RTs.

Does anyone know approximately how much the weekender shift pays now? I've been a nurse for 3 years & I prefer nights.

Thank you.
