NYC Per Diem Hour Rates

Has 7 years experience. Specializes in Tele, Medsurg, Stepdown.

Hello. If this question has already been asked/answered before I apologize but I couldn't find it.

I'm an RN with almost 2 yrs of experience who's planning to move to NYC in the near future and I'd be interested in working at a hospital as per diem (night shift only) in either telemetry/med surg/step down.

My question is: What can I expect as far as hourly rate (per diem/night) in NYC?

I know it may vary greatly like it does here in the Miami area (anywhere from 33-46hr) but an approximate amount would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Our per diems on nights here at NY Presbyterian/Columbia pull about $50/hr.

Steve I am graduating from a local ADN RN program in May. I live in Rockland NY, is this a place where I could work? I am currently a telemetry/EKG interpreter in a PCU in Westchester.

I don't see why not! You'll probably have a bit of a commute, or you could try to find local housing or apply for employee housing.

We are in the process of completing a brand new cardiac care wing by the end of next year. There are always jobs in tele, m/s. I work NICU, and I know my manager frequently hires new grads, but MSCHONY may not be your thing.

I had heard they do not hire graduates from associates degree programs. This is the story around the "water cooler" in the college.

Thanks for the encouraging words, Bunny. I'm seriously considering the move since as you said the cost of living is not equivalent to the pay and I've been in love with NYC ever since I was a child. To answer your question, the wages you quoted are pretty accurate as far as full time is concerned, except that I only work per diem + nights, that's why it seems high. The $33/hr is @ Mount Sinai, Miami Beach, while the $46/hr is @ Baptist Hospital, in Kendall where I work in the float pool as well. Thanks again :)

Just keep in mind the NYS and NYC income taxes. It's a pretty hard hit into that paycheck. You can use http://www.paycheckcity.com to figure out the take home pay.

I work perdiem and its 46days and 48 nights. If you get 46 in fl stay there. Unless you just want to live in nyc. Its a great city. Keep in mind the difference with city tax and state taxes is a lot. You are getting a raise just staying in fl. Last week I paid about 550dol in just state and city taxes in a two week pay period. Ouch!

Ouch is right. Thanks for the reply.

Lenox Hill $51 per diem (night shifts)

$47 per diem (day shifts)

Not great pay considering no benefits... and you could get canceled. But it is a good way to check out a position before you apply.

Typically, in NYC, how many years of experience does a nurse need in order to be able to work per diem?

I'm gonna guess it's a year. I think that's the standard in most places.
