I am curious how much nurses make now. I got my RN lic. 2000. My base pay (40 hrs. week no overtime) is 6,700 dollars a month. I am curious about how this compares to other RN's.

That is really good for 7 years experience!!! The midwest is about 20K less per year or more.
If you like your job, you better stay there!!

Central US RN's make 50-60K per year, without OT.

About a year ago the union fought hard for a big increase. After we got it, I keep hearing our pay is "comparable" to what other nurses make. I think it is much more. There is a scale for years of experience prior to being hired. I have been working here since 2004. Another nurse hired the same day (2004) has RN experience since 1995. Her base pay is 7100 a month. We get free parking, paid lunch time, and the lunch cafeteria food is free.

I made 87,000 with about 8-11 hours overtime every other week.
