Hello everyone,

What's the salary of hospital PCT II and PCT III? Especially at All Children's Hospital and St. Anthony's. Or maybe whatever Tampa Bay Area you worked or work at now.

(Any info on shift differentials and weekend pay, OT)

I'm a new LPN without any experience (healthcare or otherwise). I've only done internship, volunteering and short term work contracts while I was in college before PN school.

Currently I'm in the process of moving to St Petersburg, Florida to be closer to my sweetheart. So I'd appreciate your replies and insight!

And yes, I did apply for LPN positions but I've gotten few callbacks for interviews.

I do have an interview setup for a PCT position but I have no idea the wage range I should expect so I don't let my jaw drop or lowball myself.

Thanks!!

I don't know which PCT level I am (I suspect II) but Bayfront really lowballed me. I'm talking 11.70 an hour when someone with the same amount of experience was offered a dollar an hour more. Don't be afraid to negotiate with them like I was. I'm waiting for my 90 days to be up and then I'm asking them for that dollar.

The hospital I work at as a PCT in Ga only starts out at 10.25 an hour on day shift, no matter how much experience you have, and shift differentials are not that much either. No room for financial advancement at my place of employment because raises are not given individually, they are given to everyone at same time as a cost of living increase and only when they choose to do so like every one to two years, last increase was only about 15 cent more an hour, at that rate it would take me over six years to make a dollar more then my starting wage. I was so excited when I got my PCT Certificate because I thought I could make at least 14-16 an hour. I was very disappointed when told my starting wage, but took the job anyway in hopes that raises would quickly add more to my income, but soon discovered they don't give them very often and not much of increase. I made far better money years ago as a waitress. The state cost of living for where you live in and the facility that hires you determine your wages, I just so happened to live in a low wage paying state and a hospital that prefers profit over employee wages lol.

I thought if you are a nurse you can't work as a PCT?, only if your a nursing student.,

Nurses can work as PCTs. The nursing scope of practice is greater than PCTs/CNAs, but it also includes those "lesser" skills. Much like how a doctor can start an IV as it is included in their scope of practice, but most often nurses do it.

Factor in shift differential for weekends and night shift and you can earn 1-4 dollars more an hour added to your base pay.

I'm in Mass but I make 12.98 evening and weekend $1 differential, nights $2
