  • I used to be registered in Montana, we got a little over mininum wage. Only the RN was allowed to pass meds.
    It was a small place, only 80 beds, and 2 were capable of taking care of themselves. If we were lucky..we'd have 3 on a shift.

  • I used to make $7.70 w/out benefits about 10 yrs ago, it was back breaking,stinky work and people treated me like a slave, literally. I am a RN now and the only thing that is better is the pay and benefits. You deserve a TON more.
