That doesn't seem like a lot for such a specialty. Training a good nurse for CVICU will take 6 months to 18 months or 20 to 60K and a couple years to marinate and mature.

Back in the day, I had a couple of assignments with a 5K completion bonus for 3 months in CVOR on top of excellent base pay, and saw one for Detroit in winter for 10K.

Specialize, specialize, and you too may get offers like that.

They aren't offering it because it's a bad situation. I'm here in at Piedmont as a CVICU travel nurse and it's been a good assignment so far. I float to all the other ICUs too but it's been all good. Everyone has been nice and helpful. The reason why they are offering 20K is because they are expanding the CVICU to 34 beds. That's why they need all the travelers. They need the help.

I started traveling from Atlanta and two of my classmates and a doctor I know work at Piedmont. It's a great hospital that is VERY busy but very rewarding in their opinion. Traffic in ATL is horrendous so live as close to work as you can!

Yeah I looked into the sign on bonus for $20,000 but they require a 2 year commitment (a lifetime for a traveler) and then they tax the hell out of it so you probably get about $12,000. Not worth it. I give enough money to the government already to supply welfare recipients with steak dinners and the newest iPhone.

I also am planning to be in CRNA school in about a year so it doesn't factor into my timeline. Not to mention that the traffic in Atlanta is unreal and I don't know how much longer I'd want to stay in it. A woman got hit by a car on my way to work a few days ago. I'm pretty sure that cars are given to the homeless and school children here and they are out on the roads.
