    Midwest speaking. New w/o experience $22.00/hr. Those with years of experience and have stayed in the PACU $36.00 or more.

    Slightly above the minimum stated by BarbRN62. Starting my 2nd year of PACU, but previously worked Med-Surg as well as Hospice.

    I have 30 years experience, live on the west coast and earn almost $50.00/hr........ I think there's quite a range! Ten years ER experience prior.

    Uniform throughout the hospital. 50 cents more per hour with certification in your area. Union hospital 30+ years experience $43hr. East Coast pay, is usually higher than down South or Midwest in the USA. 10or 15% shift differentials for off shifts, evenings and nights. On call pay is 1 1/2 times hourly rate guaranteed four hours of pay even if you are only there one hour.
