Oahu nurse pay

Posted

Hello everyone. I've posted in the Hawaii forum already, but not many people there. So I'm trying here:)

I moved to Oahu and was just offered a position with a local hospital in Honolulu. I have my BSN and 2 years experience. I was offered 38$ an hour. As I am from the mainland I don't really have the knowledge of the pay rate here for RN BSN. I'm really looking for someone who knows the rate on Oahu. I have no one to ask what is acceptable here. Any help much appreciated ! Thank you.

I have no knowledge, but living in Michigan and bracing for Winter I totally wish I had your job offer 😉 

Best of luck to you whatever you decide.

I don't have specific information on the current pay rate. I did work on Oahu 10 years ago. Given the high cost of living on the island, you can make it on $38, but I suspect you are being low-balled. You can always counter offer, all they can do is say no.

You could try any of the many Paycheck calculators on-line to discover how much nurses in state make. You might also want to look at cost of living.

Thanks everyone ! I declined the offer and went with someone else who offered much more!
