Recently I read a question asking how much people where making hourly/yearly and where they lived. Out of all the answers, some ranging fairly low (40k a year on the low end) someone posted that they make around 70k a year in the PNW. Now, being from the PNW and pursuing a nursing career, this was exciting, but I would like some imput. If you are working as a nurse anywhere in the PNW, even better the Olympic Peninsula, and you wouldn't mind sharing your salary, I would appreciate it. I think the username was rnup2nogood or something. Thanks.

Hi,

You will get various answers due to the fact that many hospitals will pay according to years of service, over time, shift differential, certification, or baccalaureate degree, charge nurse pay When I add in my cert, shift diff, my pay is roughly 4.00 more an hour.

What you need to do is find the hospital you are interested in and see if they are unionized. You can then go to the website of the union and read the actual contract.
