I am going back to office nursing after working in OB at the hospital. I am taking a $6.50/hour cut in pay, but have weighed the pros and cons. I could NOT do nights.

I am going to work per diem at the hospital to make up for the lost $$ and to keep up my skills. It also helps to keep a foot in the door should a day position ever open up.

Just wondered what most office jobs pay. I know it is usually if not always lower than the hospital.

I make $19.50. Lots of opportunities for OT if I want them. I was happy to give up shift differential and charge differential in exchange for normal life differential ;).

No Laura, I only make $12.50/hour. But I do get my insurance for free, a pension and other benefits. But the $$$$$ isn't much!

I am a 42 year old new grad nurse with no hospital experience, just took a job in a very busy family practice office making 27,900/yr with great medical benefits for my whole family, paid holidays, no nights and NO WEEKENDS!!!!!!!!!! I know I will miss the hospital experience for now, but the benefits and time schedule will be great.
