Help - Is Job Offer for Fort Myers, Florida fair??
Hello,

I am a Registered Nurse living in Fort Myers, and I just got offered a full-time position in the O.R. for $23 per hour.

I am a nurse with 4 years experience (mostly med surg and renal), but the O.R. is new to me.

Is this a fair hourly rate? It is at a major hospital in the area.

Thanks in advance!

Brad

No way. Ask for more or go agency or travel. Travel is paying at least 40.

If you were an experienced OR nurse I would question the salary. As a new RN in the OR that seems about right. If you take that job after a couple years you should be able to get either a raise or you could find another OR that would be willing to pay more for your experience.

They would be lucky to have you!
Good luck!

Florida Salaries
That, unfortunately, is what you will start with in Florida. They pay lousy. That's why I left. As an agency nurse I was making $31/h and all the overtime I wanted. I took a travel job to California and I make $44. Unfortunately, if you are changing specialties, you'll have to take what they give you, move to a higher paying state or stay with what you know and travel. Florida salaries insult nurses
