Per Diem/supplemental Rates in Texas?

Posted

Hi all,

I'm an RN who is currently a SAHM to my infant son. I am considering finding PRN/Per Diem work in the near future. My husband and I are crunching numbers and trying to decide between me getting a PRN gig or a part-time gig. With factoring in the cost of child care on those days, I'd like to have some idea of what the normal hourly pay rate would be for per diem/non-benefits work? I truly have no idea. I have 3-4 years of experience.

Thanks in advance!

Location makes a big difference, Texas is a big state with a very diverse pay scale depending on the location.

Houston area? Interested in both Med center and outside med center

I am in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. For a nurse with three to four years of experience, the per diem/PRN rate would be $36/hourly as a base rate. Shift differentials for evening and overnight hours would bump the rate upward.

The part time pay rate for a nurse with three to four years of experience would only be in the $27/hourly range with benefits. Our part-timers are expected to work two 12 hour shifts per week.

Thanks so much. Very helpful! How many shifts are your prn required to work? I know this varies hospital to hospital of course but trying to gather information.

My place of employment requires a PRN/per diem commitment of at least one shift every two pay periods, or a minimum of once every 30 days.

I know Memorial Hermann has different levels of PRN staffing (PRN I, II and III), and pay is based on which level you are (no idea about pay or exact schedule since I don't do it).
