Thanks guys for all of your responses. I was a little surprised that Seattle and surrounding areas pay the average of $30/hr for agency RN's. Coming from Jacksonville, FL, the pay rate there was $28/hr when I started in April 2000, then increased to $32/hr by the time I left in October 2000. Somehow I thought that Seattle being more northern than Florida, would pay more.
At least I have some figures to work with, because as we all know, agencies will not give out any pay rate information, no matter how hard you try.
***Note: Can you guys in WA send me a message about your agencies? I'm looking to start working really soon.
Thanks again, guys
