MyHospital, like others in its system, decreased traveler pay by $3 an hour and by $500/month for housing.
It is offering $23 - $25/hr base for ICU travelers.
I mean....WOULD YOU?
There is little point in addressing this at NPC, as every hospital in our system in our state is offering same. They want to cover the shortage with the "super float pool" of ICU/ER RNs who cover our system. This sounds like an interesting idea, and we were still short tonight. Do that math.
Colorado can do this because people come here because it's Colorado. So you out-of-towners, stay home. It sucks here. Go away. Did we mention the four feet of snow in 24h blizzard? Go away. You don't want to come. We have....we have. What do we have? We have horrible drivers in ton+ SUVs that are perpetually clean. Stay away. They're like locusts. Those people just can't steer.
