  1. Hi I am new grad just starting out.

    I heard that nurses get paid more hourly for weekday and weekend night shifts.

    I was wondering how much more in bc ?

    It will depend on the specific facility. Some places will pay a straight dollar amount for a differential others pay a percentage (in which case dollar amount can vary based on your base pay). I think straight dollar amount is more common.

    I can't comment on the range of rates you are likely to see offered in B.C. as I'm not familiar with that particular job market.
