    I'm thinking of moving to virginia beach/chesapeake area in about a year is $19.60 all RN's make, I'm an LPN in Tacoma, WA and I make $18.60 an hour with just over a year of experience. Does anyone know about salaries for the hampton veterans affairs.

    Wages are lower here than WA, and the VA reflects the general wages in the area. As an RN, I took a $10 pay cut coming from Olympia, and with state income tax my income is a full 1/3 less. Cost of living is similiar to Tacoma, but cheaper gas and cigarettes Working off-shifts does help, but our general lack of a union in the area makes it difficult to get good wages and benefits. Think you would be safer with the VA because then you can join the Gov't employee union--but be aware, they are VERY slow to respond to applications and you will need to keep in touch with their HR office--I recommend calling them weekly. I'd be happy to answer questions about the area versus WA.

    I am graduating with my BSN from Arizona State University (new grads in Phoenix make about $25-27 an hour). I took a job at CHKD in Virginia because my fiance lives there, but I will be making $20.38/hr. That is a HUGE paycut! I am looking forward to my new job because it's what I want to do, and where I want to be. The weekend differentials are $2/hr, after 3 pm is $2/hr, and after 11pm is $7/hr. I don't think there is any difference between ADN and BSN.

    What is the pay rate for "New Grad-LPN"'s" in the Hampton Roads area? I'm interested in LTC pay rate, Chesapeake Regional, Maryview, Obici, Sentara hospitals and Portsmouth Naval. Also can anyone tell me about the differential pay for 3-11 and 11-7.:wink2:
