Psych RN moving to DC -- need your advice!

New DC RN New DC RN (New) New

Hello and thanks for reading!

I'm a psych RN with 3+ years of licensed experienced with another ~5 years in the field before I became an RN.

Currently live in Midwest and planning to re-locate to DC later this year.

Currently work in a weekend-option position on nights.

Can anyone give me info/advice on what to expect in terms of base pay with my experience, and what differentials are like for nights/weekends/weekend-option?

Any advice on 'best hospitals' would be appreciated too. I have researched some on my own and seems GW may be my best bet for psych, though Georgetown or VA or WHS may be good too.

I've put in an email to GW HR and waiting to hear back. They have a lot of spots open, most interesting to me would of course be psych or ED.

Anyone else who has moved to DC in last few years as an RN that can tell me what that's been like would be awesome.
