I'd have to say that from the people I know that RN jobs are in abundance basically everywhere. I think you'd have no problem starting out in the mid 40's (per year) with a nice sign on bonus at most of the major medical centers. Obviously, you would want to check with Gwinnett Medical Center, Eastside Medical Center, Kaiser, Dekalb Medical Center, Also with some medical recruiters. I know one if you would like to be in contact with her. If interested, pm me.

My mom is a registered nurse and I am currently a nursing student graduating in May. She is working at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Decatur currently through an agency and is making about $37 per hour. Pay rages vary greatly, depending on what healthcare system, hospital, or particular unit you have experience in; with ICU, ER, and CCU paying the highest. It also depends on your years of experience, and what area your experience is in. I have another friend that works in PACU at Northside Hospital and is making $30 per hour. I think on average, if you have at least 5 years experience, you make at least $27-$30 per hour. Unfortunetly, Georgia pay is nothing to write home about. If you want, you can come down here and start out with an agency, get paid more, and try different hospitals out before you decide. Working enviornments vary, different hospitals treat their employees differently, some have more perks than others, it just depends. My mom currently works for Maxim Healthcare, and seems happy. She's 58 though, and close to retirement, and is tired of hospital nursing. Agency work is something she is doing until she figures out what she wants to do as a nurse while she slowly eases out of her career field. PM me if you have more questions. Good Luck!!

You might want to try the Nursing forum and search for ATL. I get most of my information from that site and this one.

I'm an RN and thinking of moving to Atlanta for retirement but with healthcare the way it is I will probably have to work about 10 more years until 65 for medicare if it's still there. I'm a little afraid of the transition after so many years. I do have a BS and have extensive experience in all types of nursing. I am currently on the IV team and make 54/hour. How much of a cut am I looking at and what alternatives are there. At this late date I cannot go back to floor nursing. What about private duty? Any ideas or help?

Georgia nurses are grossly underpaid, UNLESS they go through an agency. Agency RN's are averaging $35-45/hour. Agency LPN's are around $25/hr.

I have check fraud on my criminal background, which has been paid off in full, stemming from the year 1997. I had written a couple of checks from my direct deposit acct. when i moved from one state to another, thinking that my job that i had would deposit my last check into my acct., but instead, they sent the check to my new address which i was not aware of! by that time, i had already depleted my funds and a warrant was issued for my arrest. This has prevented me from obtaining a good job. I need to know which jobs that don't do background checks? until i can resolve this issue by having it expunged.

To obtain a Georgia RN license you have to do a background check which includes finger-printing. I believe they told me it was checked with a national data-base.
I think it is hard to find a GOOD job that doesn't require checks, in fact, I had to have a background check to volunteer for the church Sunday School.
It might be worth your time and a few dollars to consult an attorney.
