Bedside pay vs research pay

  1. Hey everybody,

    I'm thinking about getting into research as a nurse but I can't seem to find any concrete information on salary and how it compares to bedside.

    So I wanted to ask everybody, how does your research salary compare to when you worked bedside?

    Thanks~~

    Well....not so good if you work at a university in Texas. However, the intangibles are amazing. Working with great people and holidays off and making a difference and having time to really get to know your participants is really great.

    Not so good? Hmm, so if I was paid say 24 dollars in Texas then would I be paid like 15?
