Hi! I'm in the burbs of Denver for 20+ years. Depends on the hospital or systems you want to work for. Denver Metro has been monopolized by Centura, SCL, and University. I work for Parallon Staffing and they are the primary staffing agency for Health 1 hospitals. Their starting rate for me is $42. They also have Critical Care Float pools for ICU or ER, and i think the starting rate is around $40 at most of the area hospitals. Good luck! Get ready, the traffic is HORRENDOUS since legalization and its not as laid back as it used to be.
