TGN Live Event: Compensation Packages

Compensation Packages – It’s Not Just the Hourly Rate

Jean Cook and Kelly Kirby from Travel Nurse Across America went live on our social media platforms to discuss compensation packages. Below you will find a brief overview from their session.

OT rates, per diems, benefits, etc. are all important parts of compensation packages.  Learn more about what they mean and how to compare offers.

  • Hourly pay rate – effective rate
    • Income tax Rate being used by the quoting agency
  • Premiums and OT
  • Per Diems
  • Low Census pay impacts
  • COVID impacts
  • Benefits
  • Service level you want/expect
  • Think about – perm vs. travel – it is not the same, double check when a nurse manager announces something if it applies to you
