Hey ya'll been traveling for approximately 3 years now. I'll just keep this short and to the point. I think as travel nurses and nurses in general need to be more open about our compensation. If you are working with other travelers and/or staff and doing the same job don't you think you should be getting a comparable rate? With that being said I will post the details of my assignment and pay. If you feel inclined post the details of your assignment with rate of pay, and we all can compare. I try to tell as many people as I can (not in a bragging way), I just think in doing so a person is not as vulnerable to companies and can negotiate a lot easier! Thanks yall. PM me with any questions!
-13 week contract Northern CA, ICU Days(36 hours weekly)
-NOT a crisis rate
-$854/Weekly Housing stipend (non taxed)
-$462/Weekly Meals (non taxed)
-$28 Hourly straight rate (taxed)
= $1316 weekly (non taxed)
= $1008 weekly (taxed)
-I pay $100 weekly for insurance for me and my spouse. My weekly take home is usually approx. $2100 after taxes. This is my first assignment with my current company. And I have made it very well known to my recruiter that I will be making at least $2500 weekly in my next assignment, or I will be finding another company. I know this is an ok rate, but with all the crisis rates being offered and what not, There is plenty more mooney to be made. Thanks for reading. Hope to get some good feedback!
