Thanks Darkstar for starting the salary thread this year. It's interesting to see the changes year to year. Sadly the numbers don't seem to go up much. Here's mine for the beginning of the year:

Location: Northern Wisconsin

Experience: ADN, 15 years RN with 5 years as a CNA and 1 year as a Nurse Tech previous to that

Specialty: SNF

Facility: smallish SNF

Pay: Just shy of 30 base plus shift differential and weekend differential. The differentials are pretty small; 0.75 for PM, 1.50 for NOC's which I rarely if ever work any more and 0.50/hr on weekends. For my normally scheduled shift that bumps my max to about 31.25 on a weekend. There are also bonus's for picking up shifts, usually $50 but occasionally more if they are desperate. I don't pick up extra too often, but the bonus is a nice incentive for those that do.

 

The annual salary thread should also give a rough idea of COL to put the pay in perspective though. My 30/hr is decent around here where COL is pretty low but it would look like minimum wage [or worse] if I lived somewhere like the Bay area in Cali or NYC where living in something the size of a broom closet is at least $1500/month.

 

 

My house is paid off so only taxes and insurance for me, taxes are 1100/year and insurance runs about 150/month. For those that rent the cost is creeping up, a decent 2 bedroom can be found for as little as 600/month but those properties are getting harder to find. I'd say the average now is between 800-1000 plus utilities. Gas, food etc are mid range. Not the cheapest in the country but not too bad.

CCU BSN RN has 7 years experience and specializes in CICU, Telemetry.

243 Posts; 4,353 Profile Views

Location: New England (not NYC or Boston)

Experience: 6 years BSN

Specialty: CCU

Facility :Large Hospital

Pay: $37/h base, $7 night diff, $3 weekend diff, $3 evening diff

kbrn I'm jealous! My property taxes alone are 6k a year. Good point about including cost of living estimates with your post though.

Mortgage $1600/m

Oil for heat: $400/m

Electric $150/m

Cable/Internet/Cell: 200/m

Car payment and insurance: 300/m

Water and Sewer: 100/m

Groceries: $300/m

So of the 4k/month that I take home after various taxes and other magical disappearances of my money, about 75% of it is already spoken for.

Re stating mortgage, they are very subjective. My mortgage for instance is very low due to a decent divorce settlement and not representative of the area. Others can be affected by amount of their down payment saved or rolled over from appreciated equity.

What needs to be stated is the average cost per sq foot or rental for a less than 20 yr old 3bd/2b in a safe neighborhood.

Ohio

BSN 2 years, hospital tele unit float

26/hr. $2 night (I'm night shift), only cents for weekends. About 5k per year float bonus. Decent benefits, facility pays about 15k per year towards health insurance costs for family.

I'm in a very bad economic area where average pay is about 25k, so everyone around me thinks I'm rich, which I obviously am not.
