I don’t think the poster intends to keep working like she does forever. She’s just sharing how a new nurse can roll in money.
a friend once worked in north Texas. She worked for a health system that sounds exactly like the OP. She was per diem 35 an hour did some nights and weekend for differential 42. She would get 10 bonus per hour. Then they would offer automatic OT 1.5 pay regardless if you have only work 12 hours. $78 an hour. Same incentive were offered to staff rns.
texas pay is not the best or worst but u can find system that offer really good pay and benefits. . A new grad making 93k In Texas is far more impressive than anything in California. Not sure why CA RNs are posting due to you having a higher taxes, rent,or mortgage. CA nurses, Texas has no income tax.
