Location: Central NC

Credentials: BSN, specialty certification

Experience: 35 years

Specialty: Endoscopy

Facility: Large 1000 bed teaching hospital

Unit expectations: You have to know how to do everything (all aspects of GI, basic cases,advanced cases, including endoteching for ERCP-)

Base Pay:$35/hour- no differential for BSN or certification

On Call Pay: About $3/hour-same pay when called in-our call is on the weekends, but we don't get weekend diff when called in

Pension plan-vested after 5 years

Decent amount of PTO, but that is slowly being decreased

Basic health insurance used to be free, but that is also no longer true

Is the job a good one ? Hmmm.........it used to be

The experience of working in a large teaching hospital is invaluable, but as I review other RN postings, I realize that I am significantly underpaid for what I do

LibraNurse27 has 5 years experience.

2,626 Visitors; 118 Posts

Location: just outside SF Bay Area

ICU Stepdown in county hospital

pay: $50/hr day shift

differential: 6% for evening, 12% for nights, $80 extra for working full weekend

benefits: great health benefits and great pension plan

downside: cost of living is CRAZY and other facilities offer $70 - $100/ hr! (I literally have friends making $100/hr per diem night shift)

I stay where I am for the good management and amazing coworkers, the patient population and lack of micromanagement... However to afford buying a house I will likely need to change jobs =(

Experience: 2 years, BSN, CCRN

Specialty: ICU (no extra specialty pay)

Facility: Large Teaching Hospital

Base Pay: $51.45

Differential: Evenings/Nights, $3.07, no weekend differential

How does a BSN-RN get a job in the large NYC hospitals? How much experience is needed or must one know someone who works there? Just asking cause it seems to be so hard to get jobs in NYC hospitals.

Location: Nebraska

Experience: 2 Months ADN

Specialty: None

Facility: Group Home (not a facility, an actual home)

Base Pay: 27/hr base pay

Differential: no differential

OT: Time and a half, available when others take vacation or leave for good

Benefits: Three tiers available, lowest tier is free, top tier is about 200/month for single. I choose free for now. Not much in the way of retirement or anything, we get about 7 hours of paid time off per 2 weeks that can go up to a max of 200 hours of paid time off before it stops accruing. Another benefit to me is wear whatever you wish to work :)
