    Re: Pay Rate 2009

    Southwest Arizona
    ED
    $39/hr + 10% diff for pms and 15% for nocs
    max $800 each way for travel
    $300/month insurance stipend (taxed)
    Housing - must pay $225/month for single, and the entire cost of housing is taxed
    This is a seasonal position directly through the hospital's HR department - no travel RN agency involved.

    I was quoted some ridiculously low ($15/hr) rates for Texas lately - curious if that is typical. Even with the tax advantage program it seemed very low.

    Amanda,

    Your travel co. sounds good, are you happy with them and would you mind telling me the name? I went to the review page and so many were outdated or extremely conflicting reports- hard to know who to believe. I'm trying to get my 1st travel assignment in San Diego, but I've read that s. Cal. is cutting back on travelers! Any info would be appreciated. I'm thinking of Travelmax, crosscountrytravcorps, cirrus, qshift, & RNnetwork.

    Re: Pay Rate 2009

    ]Cross Country stinks. I've been with them for a year and I've had two assignments with them and currently going on my third. This will be my last one. I feel like I'm getting cheated out of the pay I could be receiving from other companies. Other travelers I've spoken to are shocked when I tell them the rate CC pays. I'm actually telling my friends who want to do travel nursing to take it for the travel and to expect a pay cut if they take that route. What is the difference between the equivalent and the effective pay rate. I was told I would be getting one pay and ended up with another because the first one was labeled as the equivalent and not the effective one. I've done the calculations and I will be making 2000 after taxes a month. I will not be going back to CCT ever. They are one of the lowest if not the lowest paying companies. However I've heard many good things about Cirrus and they pay for almost everything even license fee reimbursements
