UMC posts their rates publicly on the job boards. Both have good benefits. Both have unions for RN's.

I currently work for LA County and I’m happy with them.  I guess UMC is a better option?? But the $50 /hr pay is tempting 😬

UMC is run by Clark County. The nurses there are enrolled in the Public Employees Retirement System (PERS). I don't know what St. Rose offers in that area.

Is that good compared to benefits offered by private hospitals?

The main difference is that the employer contributes to the retirement fund, and you aren't dealing with a 401K which is generally all employee contribution or else you get nothing. There are two options. One is employee/employer contribution, in which both the employer and employee contribute. There is also an employer-only option, which can have tax benefits because the gross pay is lower (you accept a reduced salary in exchange for not having to contribute to retirement).

I don't work at UMC, but I am enrolled in PERS as a state employee. I have chosen the employer-only option because I don't plan to leave state service or withdraw my contribution, and it reduces my taxable income for income tax purposes. Retirement is vested after five years. If a person either resigns before vesting (meaning that they must withdraw) or decides to withdraw even though vested at the time of resignation, the employee only gets what he or she has put in. The state's contribution (or in UMC's case, the county's) is lost in this case.

I don't know the specifics of St. Rose's benefits, but a lot of hospitals have essentially washed their hands of the retirement business other than offering 401Ks. There is also the issue of hospitals changing the companies that offer their 401Ks, which frequently happens. The employee then either has to roll over previous contributions into another 401K, or leave it where it is and have multiple accounts with different companies.

There is also the security of knowing that your employer isn't going to be bought out, taken over or shut down.

Just looked it up. St. Rose doesn't offer a retirement plan per se. They offer a 403 (b), which is similar to a 401K but it is funded with pre-tax dollars. It is voluntary, and the hospital contributes nothing.

That isn't the correct link to St. Rose Domincan Hospitals, Dignity Health, in Southern Nevada. The local St. Rose hospitals do contribute and match to their employees 403 (b) plans.

OK - thanks for the correction. I just went where a Google search took me.
