Location: Texas

Experience: 7 years

Specialty: Professional Development (MSN)

Facility: Very small, local community hospital

Base Pay: $39.00

Differentials: $2.50 eve, $6.00 weekend, double base pay for holidays, 2.00 on-call (rare), everything stacking

OT: over 40 hours is 1.5

5 weeks of PTO from day one

Medical insurance costs me $15 per pay check

I love my job. May not be the highest paying out there but I live very comfortably and I have a lot of job satisfaction. Not enough money in the world to replace that. Low cost of living in TX combined with no state income tax makes me happy.
